What makes it special

Attending GIFA Dusseldorf's next edition in 2023 will be worthwhile. Once again, the 4 trade shows, collectively known as GMTN or The Bright World of Metals, will create a one-of-a-kind business platform for foundry, metallurgy, thermoprocess technology and castings. The interdisciplinary concept behind this contributes to the participants' success, resulting in over 2360 exhibitors and 72,500 trade visitors for the GMTN. The top-notch forum and symposia add further value to the GIFA experience.

What is new for GIFA 2023

Like the other events forming The Bright World of Metals quartet, GIFA 2023 comes with a supporting programme of its own. The GIFA Forum is where the newest foundry trends and techniques are introduced. A new special show and trade conference on additive manufacturing was added to GIFA's event programme in 2019. The conference features technical lectures involving the digital process chain, QA, innovations in 3D metal printing, etc.
