Bright World of Metals Welcomes International Foundry and Metallurgical Industries to Düsseldorf again in 2027

The new dates for the GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST trade fairs have been set. The leading international trade fairs of the industry will present themselves at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre from 21 to 25 June 2027. Commenting on this, Malte Seifert, Director of GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST at Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, says: “We are delighted to have found dates in early summer that have already proven their worth in the past. The Bright World of Metals is and will remain the absolute highlight for the metallurgy and foundry sectors worldwide.”

The five-day duration of the fair with its tried-and-tested weekday schedule will remain unchanged. “The trade fair dates were chosen in close consultation with our association and conference partners and will also allow us in 2027 to organise the most relevant marketplace for the international foundry and metallurgy industries with many visitors from all over the world,” adds Malte Seifert.

Until the next edition of GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST, there will be continuous reports on industry trends and market developments on the respective trade fair portals as well as on LinkedIn and Facebook.
