Industry Relevance

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 the big industry when they touch ground in Messe Düsseldorf every four years. The quartet is often referred to as the Bright World of Metals because they create synergy together. Buyers are able to truly meet all their needs here. 

Trade visitors have a full overview of the entire value chain. Exhibitors cover everything from the latest in casting machines, casting materials and casting processes to permanent mould processes, malleable iron and casting products. Add to your experience with the seminars and conferences taking place during the trade fair. One of the highlights of NEWCAST is the NEWCAST Forum. Come for the technology and stay for the knowledge exchange. 

Who Are You Going to Meet?

NEWCAST might be a smaller event, but certainly maintains a high level of internationality. The number of non-German exhibitors in 2019 was 379 (87%), which came from all over Europe. In terms of visitors, 64% of all visitors were foreign nationals. Of course, the countries with the biggest numbers are mostly in Europe – Italy, France, Spain, and Austria. However, there’s also Turkey, India, Japan, China, Russia, and South Korea. These are all the biggest industrial markets in the world. 

Exhibitors are happy to know 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 variety in contacts and clients gives you further opportunities to grow and diversify your revenue streams. Not to mention how easy it is to break into new markets. The overall reasons professionals attend is to learn about trends and new developments, identify new suppliers and initiate purchases. Since editions roll around once every four years, customers are a lot more invested in placing direct orders. 

You definitely meet with the right people. The quality of sales leads is high since NEWCAST is a magnet for professionals in top management (46%) – owners, C-level executives and department heads. Quite naturally, they’re in the position to make purchasing decisions. Whether they have the sole power to decide or are sharing the responsibility, you’re still meeting with people who can take your business to the next level. That’s what makes NEWCAST so special in the first place. 

Additional Value of Attending 

NEWCAST is host to one of the most informative, valuable forums for the foundry industry – the Newcast forum, which is organised by the Bundesverband der Deutschen Gießerei-Industrie e. V. (BDG) and the Verein Deutscher Giessereifachleute e. V. (VDG). The forum explores potential applications of innovative casting products and casting materials and discusses the advantages of cast components. 

As a whole, the forum serves as a meeting point between developers, designers, purchasers, and foundry experts. You’re able to meet with the right people, exchange expertise and insight you’re your own sectors, and then facilitate the professional dialogue between research and practice. It’s here that the new future is being made.
