The global industry’s wait is over: The next date for GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST has been set. The international leading trade fairs for metallurgy and foundry technology will be open to an expert audience in Düsseldorf from 12 to 16 June 2023.
“I am delighted that we have once again found a date in the early summer; this timeline has proved to work perfectly,” says Friedrich-Georg Kehrer, Global Portfolio Director Metals and Flow Technologies at Messe Düsseldorf GmbH. The trade fair’s duration of five days has remained the same; however, the weekdays have changed. The metal trade fair quartet will start on a Monday and end on Friday, 16 June 2023. “This meets the expectations of the international industry, as revealed by our exhibitor and visitor survey,” says Friedrich Kehrer.
With 2,368 exhibitors from all over the world and around 72,500 visitors, of which 65 percent came from outside of Germany, the trade fair quartet has impressively underpinned its international leading position. The atmosphere in the twelve halls of the Düsseldorf trade fair centre was shaped by the numerous investments, spontaneous business deals and lively discussion and exchanges of expertise between exhibitors and professional visitors. Once more, the metallurgy trade fair quartet has proved itself to be a driver of trends and innovation. Above all, additive manufacturing and industry 4.0 ran through all the trade fair halls, uniting them. These trends met with huge interest from the professional visitors. The subjects of energy efficiency and saving resources also played a big role, which could be best seen in the ecoMetals Trails, for example.
