Save the date – Gifa, Metec, Thermprocess and Newcast 2019

The Bright World of Metals is taking place in Düsseldorf, Germany again from 25 to 29 June 2019

In just over 18 months time, the four successful technology trade fairs Gifa, Metec, Thermprocess and Newcast will be held in Düsseldorf again. From 25 to 29 June 2019 everything will revolve around foundry technology, metallurgy, thermo process technology and castings in Halls 3 to 5 and 9 to 17 at the exhibition site in Düsseldorf.

Gifa, Metec, Thermprocess and Newcast are separate trade fairs that stand in each case for themselves and their markets. They present a complete picture of the “Bright World of Metals” together, however. The range presented
 at Gifa covers the entire market for foundry plants and equipment, die casting machines and melting operations. The major plant manufacturers are a key feature of Metec, which is taking place for the tenth time in 2019. Exhibitors there are in particular suppliers of plant and equipment for iron making, steel making and non-ferrous metal production and for casting and pouring molten steel as well as rolling and steel mills. Industrial furnaces, industrial heat treatment plants and thermal processes are the main emphasis at Thermprocess, while the 5th Newcast concentrates on the presentation of castings.

The four trade fairs will be complemented by an extensive programme of additional events (including congresses), which has been compiled to satisfy the requirements of the entire industry and will be combining theory and practice in an ideal way. The World Foundrymen Organisation ( will, for example, be holding the WFO Technical Forum – the international conference for the process technology industry – at Gifa again. The Gifa Conference, the special show organised by the National Association of the German Foundry Industry/BDG (, is another established point on the agenda that has already been arranged.

The four trade fairs produced exceptionally good results when they were held most recently two years ago. 78 000 visitors from more than 120 different countries came to Düsseldorf for Gifa, Metec, Thermprocess and Newcast 2015 to experience what the 2 214 exhibitors had to offer. The atmosphere in the halls was excellent: The trade visitors were extremely impressed by the presentation of complete plants and machines and placed numerous orders. The trade fairs were once again considerably more international than at the previous event, with 56 per cent of the visitors and 51 per cent of the exhibitors coming from outside Germany.
