Why Your Visit Is Worth It
This highly specialized field in metallurgy is modest in size, and NEWCAST gives you the chance to establish valuable connections with exactly the right players to advance your business in local and regional markets. The entire community comes to this fair and it’s easy to make an impression when you’re competing with this few exhibitors:
- 430+ international exhibitors showcased at the event;
- 3900+ international trade visitors made the trip;
- 17,000+ square metres of exhibition space used.
NEWCAST has a relatively short history compared to other trade fairs as its first edition was held in 2003, but what has raised its profile and ensured it will continue to grow is its co-location with three other respected manufacturing fairs: THERMPROCESS (thermal processes), GIFA (foundry technology) and METEC (metallurgy). These four fairs create a powerful moment in big industry when they touch ground in Messe Dusseldorf every four years. Professional visitors gain access to exciting advancements across casting machines, casting materials, casting processes, malleable iron, casting products, permanent mold processes and others more. Supplement your experience with the many seminars and conferences taking place. One of the highlights of NEWCAST is the NEWCAST Forum.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
NEWCAST is predominantly dominated by German exhibitors as only 65 exhibitors in 2015 were international, while the divide between German and international trade visitors swings in the other direction. Roughly 60% of last edition’s visitors flew in from outside Germany. The countries with the biggest numbers were from Europe, followed by Asia. Exhibitors will be happy to know that there is a large variety of industry sectors represented. Trade visitors come from the automobile, mechanical engineering, services, electrical engineering, wholesale and export trade, electronics and construction industries. This gives you opportunities to diversify your revenue stream. Even better – two of the top reasons to visit are to see new trends and meet with new suppliers.
