Around 15,000 visitors flocked to the exhibition from all over the globe, underlining the enthusiastic response to the event.

Once again, the Indian Institute of Foundrymen (IIF) gave away awards to promote excellence in various foundry upgradations. And for the first time, IIF organized ‘Cast Source Meet’ which was a star attraction for delegates during IFC. Cast source meet provided an opportunity to explore and forge new business relationships and discuss the challenges & opportunities of present & future markets for mutual benefit.

From February 27th 2015 – March 1st 2015, India Expo Center & Mart, Greater Noida acted as a magnet to the entire foundry industry. 300 exhibitors from all over the world attended this year's Indian Foundry Congress and Foundry Exhibition in Greater Noida, and all were extremely happy with their success at the exhibition.

This is a great platform for industry professionals to know about new technologies and about the companies working in this sector. Also to highlight, it was not only the number of visitors that met with praise - the quality of the exhibition and conference was also lauded by attendees.

"Indian Foundry Congress and the exhibition have given access to the stakeholder community and with the new government showing strong directions to the manufacturing sector and sourcing material from the domestic industry we can foresee a bright future for the foundry industry. We are happy organizing such event and definitely looking forward to increased participation in future editions also," declared Mr. Naresh Garg, Organizing Chairman, 63rd Indian Foundry Congress.
