MESSE DÜSSELDORF TO PROMOTE FOUNDRY AND CASTING TRADE FAIRS AT CASTEXPO’10
Messe Düsseldorf will participate in CastExpo’10 in order to promote its worldwide program of trade fairs for the foundry and casting industry, including GIFA 2011, 12th International Foundry Trade Fair with WFO Technical Forum, and NEWCAST 2011, 3rd International Trade Fair for Precision Castings (to be held concurrently from June 28 - July 2, 2011 in Düsseldorf, Germany with the motto “The Bright World of Metals”). At CastExpo booth 1660, exhibitor and visitor information for the trade fairs will be available as well as information on hotel and travel arrangements.
As the global No.1 event for the industry, GIFA 2011 will provide a complete overview of advances in the foundry practice. It will be the international meeting place for the world's leading manufacturers of foundry machinery and plant construction, suppliers of foundry-related materials and auxiliaries as well as manufacturers of measurement and testing devices and engineering companies. A total of 793 exhibitors and over 51,000 visitors from around the world participated when the event was last held in 2007.
The NEWCAST concept is unique worldwide, since it is trade fair devoted exclusively to casting products. It is a platform for designers, engineers, production managers and buyers of finished casting products. As the thematically logical continuation of the parallel held GIFA trade fair, NEWCAST represents the high end of the value-added chain. The show’s last staging in 2007 attracted over 3,600 visitors and 304 exhibitors from 32 countries.
