Messe Düsseldorf Director Joachim Schäfer: “For some time now, switching to a three-year interval has appeared to us to be necessary, because the innovation cycles in the foundry technology and metallurgy sectors are shortening too. It has proved to be the case that a shortening of the interval would put too much pressure on the corporate exhibitors. Since Messe Düsseldorf always acts in line with its customers’ requirements, it has decided to maintain the four-year interval with the four leading trade fairs GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST – at the request of large numbers of exhibitors.”
The four trade fairs produced exceptionally good results when they were held most recently: 78,000 visitors from more than 120 different countries came to Düsseldorf for GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST to experience what the 2,214 exhibitors had to offer from 16 to 20 June 2015. The atmosphere in the halls was excellent: the trade visitors were extremely impressed by the presentation of complete plants and machines and even placed numerous orders. The exhibitors were delighted about the business transactions concluded with customers from all over the world. The trade fairs were once again considerably more international than at the previous event, with 56 % of the visitors and 51 % of the exhibitors coming from outside Germany this time.
