Why Your Visit Is Worth It?

The main strength of THERMPROCESS is that it’s a highly specialised event, which means that you meet with only the right potential buyers. You don’t have to worry about low-value contacts. Plus, the structure of the event and support programme ensures you get the best conditions to raise your brand visibility. THERMPROCESS is spaced every four years so the financial strain to rent a booth is lower compared to annual events. Here is the data from last edition:

  • 337 international exhibitors from 34 countries showcased at the event;
  • 5900+ international trade visitors made the trip;
  • 18,000+ square metres of exhibition space used.

Industry Relevance

THERMPROCESS takes place every four years co-located with three other highly specialised trade fairs that combined offer cutting-edge solutions for industrial manufacturing. These events are GIFA (foundry technique), METEC (metallurgy) and NEWCAST (casting products), which are hosted at Messe Dusseldorf, and called the Bright World of Metals. THERMPROCESS is the premier platform for showcasing the latest in thermo process technology and heat technology. 

The product assortment covers the entire value chain - insulation, laboratory equipment, pumps, quenching plants, refrigeration equipment, furnace building materials, chimneys, conveyors, drives, fans and industrial furnaces to name a few. You’d be happy to know that the trade fair is a world leader in this sector and has been going strong since its foundation in 1974, so it only elevates your brand.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

As you’re interested in growing your market reach beyond your country, we’re going to profile THERMPROCESS geographically. First, it’s important to note that the trade fair is equally split down the middle when it comes to nationals and internationals attending THERMPROCESS. Half of all trade visitors and exhibitors are foreign nationals. After Germany, the countries with the largest share come from Europe, followed by Asian countries like China and Japan, then by South and Central America, and the USA. The reasons to attend the event for trade visitors are many – look into trends, look for new suppliers, decide on new purchases and placing direct orders.

Additional Value of Attending 

What’s special about the Bright World of Metals is the dedication to innovation especially when it comes to green technologies. The ecoMetals Trails is the much talked-about feature that points buyers towards exhibitors, who are doing essential work in creating climate-neutral solutions. The trails have guided tours that take visitors through a series of key companies along the metallurgical value chain. These are the four pillars of the ecoMetals Trails:

  • Resource efficiency: These are the secondary raw materials, which showcase sustainable rebirth through metal recycling. The end of the product is the first link in the value chain.
  • Energy efficiency: Heat treatment is indispensable for high product quality. Heat recovery is increasingly part of the processes.
  • Emissions reduction: A resource-saving, low-emission metal production and processing helps the environment – and the economy.
  • Innovation: Economy and technology in harmony with nature. Sustainably produced with environmentally friendly processed products.

ecoMetals Trails were a resounding success in 2019. Trade visitors received a crash course in the world of green innovations, while exhibitors found long-term business partners. The feature is especially useful for newly established companies, who need the initial push to grow and develop.

The last highlight of the programme is the THERMPROCESS Symposium. It’s the industry guide to technological breakthroughs in the field of thermoprocessing technology. For 2023, the first day is dedicated to “Energy Transition (Energiewende)”. Here you can expect to learn about the scientific, political, and regulatory aspects of energy transition for the thermoprocessing industry.

The other two days are where experts and exhibitors will take to the stage to guide visitors through the technological advancements made during the last four years. Industry 4.0 is here to stay and there will be presentations on digitalization of processes and plants, as well as technical solutions geared towards tapping full productivity potential. Other major topics include flexible and resilient processes and technologies for new global challenges; energy-efficient, sustainable and low-pollution thermoprocessing technology for effective climate protection; and the contributions of thermoprocess technology to recycling for an integrated circular economy. 

The Outlook for 2023

THERMPROCESS 2023 returns to Messe Dusseldorf, bringing with it a packed programme and exciting possibilities. The entire metallurgy industry waits to meet once again at the Bright World of Metals. What’s new is the change in starting date. Usually held in the second half of the week, THERMPROCESS is moved towards a Monday starting day. The edition will conclude on Friday. Organisers made this change in accordance with surveys of both trade visitors and exhibitors. 

Expectations are quite high as much has changed technologically in the last four years. Plus, this will be the first post-pandemic edition and that comes with a certain level of importance. It will be the first opportunity for collaborators and partners to reestablish contact again, and get back to business as usual.
