From 25 to 29 June 2019 the “Bright World of Metals” featured a unique range of international congresses, symposiums, forums and special shows. The four trade fairs GIFA, NEWCAST, METEC and THERMPROCESS provided a high-quality programme focussing on the entire spectrum of foundry technology, castings, metallurgy and thermo process technology – including additive manufacturing, metallurgical issues, trends in the steel industry, current aspects of thermo process technology or innovations in the energy and resource efficiency fields.
The “fourfold” industry meeting for top decision makers welcomed more than 78,000 visitors from more than 120 countries in Düsseldorf.
