GIFA 2015 in Düsseldorf – The Bright World of Metals
As the world’s most important trade fair for foundry technology, GIFA is being held as part of the quartet of technology fairs—the others being METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST—from 16 – 20 June 2015 for the 13th year.
The Messe Düsseldorf is the perfect venue for this important international specialist fair. This is not only because the city itself offers fascinating things to see (for example the media harbor with its outstanding modern architecture), but also because everyone—from the small start-up to the global player, interested in the world’s leading trade fair or the most promising trends—will feel at home. This is where know-how and expertise are concentrated, with 98 percent of attendees from the foundry industry. That’s a rate rarely equaled anywhere else in the world. (See an aerial view of this enormous 75-acre fairground.)
The success of the Messe Düsseldorf Group is marked by the ease with which it acts as an innovation broker, bringing together enterprises and experts in an increasingly digitalized world. Messe Düsseldorf does this in its home city, but also at other locations in the world’s growing markets.
The fair is the platform for excellent business opportunities and the yardstick for innovation and modern technology for efficient casting in the third millennium. Here’s the place to meet people and where you have an opportunity to talk face to face with well-known producers of foundry technology from all over the world. At the last GIFA in 2011 around 2,000 international exhibitors met 79,000 visitors from 83 countries, impressive confirmation of the position the event holds as the leading trade fair in the industry.
