The programme for the 2nd International Thermprocess Summit at the In-terContinental Hotel in Düsseldorf on 27. and 28. June 2017 has been final-ised. Such high-profile international speakers as Professor Dr Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker (Club of Rome / keynote address), Dr Paul Rübig (EU Parliament) or Dr Richard Mark Soley (Industrial Internet Consortium) guarantee an exceptionally attractive programme. The two-day confer-ence will, for example, be dealing not only with scientific and practical as-pects of thermo process technology but also with the general global, eco-nomic and industry policy conditions. The impact of digitisation on industry will be presented, in addition to the latest news from selected industrial cus-tomer groups (e.g. car manufacturing and the metal processing industry) and new business models.
A detailed summary of the complete programme of ITPS 2017 is available online at www.itps-online.com The online ticket shop will be opening at the end of March too. The tickets for the two-day conference cost EUR 950.00 plus VAT. Members of VDMA Metallurgy and CECOF (European Committee of Industrial Furnace and Heating Equipment Associa-tion/Frankfurt) are entitled to tickets for the reduced price of EUR 800.00 plus VAT.
Successful duo: conference & exhibition
The exhibition held at the same time in the foyer of the InterContinental Hotel is an ideal addition to the high-quality conference programme. The sponsor this time is LOI Thermprocess GmbH, which will be presenting its capabilities to the expert visitors and conference participants from industry alongside further well-known companies, such as Himmelwerk GmbH, Elster GmbH (Honeywell Thermal Solutions), IBS or ITG Induktionsanla-gen GmbH.
Companies that are interested continue to have an opportunity to book exhibitor and sponsor packages and benefit in addition from participation in the conference free of charge. The documents for exhibitors and infor-mation about participation in the exhibition can be obtained from Jennifer Dübelt (e-mail: DuebeltJe(at)messe-duesseldorf.de, tel. + 49 211 4560 520) or from www.itps-online.com/exhibition-and-sponsorship
ITPS & The Bright World of Metals:
Four years ago, Messe Düsseldorf, VDMA Metallurgy/Frankfurt, the European thermo process association CECOF and the trade magazine “heat processing” published by Vulkan Verlag in Essen launched the ITPS conference and exhibition with great success. Every two years, Düsseldorf becomes the hotspot for the global thermo process industry and the industries that use its products – with ITPS and THERMPROCESS taking place alternately. International offshoots in Asia and the USA round off the portfolio. The four international technology trade fairs GIFA (International Foundry Trade Fair), METEC (In-ternational Metallurgical Trade Fair), THERMPROCESS (International Trade Fair for Thermo Process Technology) and NEWCAST (International Trade Fair for Castings) are being held in 14 halls from 25. to 29. June 2019. More than 2,000 exhibitors and about 78,000 visitors are expected to attend. International stakeholders in the castings, foundry technology, metallurgy and thermo process technology fields will then be focussing their attention on the city on the Rhine for five days. There will be a high-quality programme alongside the trade fairs too, with seminars, international congresses and lecture series.
