Foundry technology remains a cornerstone of industrial activity, and GIFA will once again prove its high innovation potential and efficiency against a background of increasing demands in terms of quality, flexibility, cost management, environment and links with modern technologies.

As the global No.1 event, GIFA 2019 will provide a complete overview of advances in the foundry practice. Düsseldorf will again be the venue for the world's leading manufacturers of foundry machinery, suppliers of foundry-related materials and auxiliaries, manufacturers of measurement and testing devices for quality assurance, and engineering companies.

METEC (International Metallurgical Technology Trade Fair with Congress), THERMPROCESS (International Trade Fair and Symposium for Thermo Process Technology), and NEWCAST (International Castings Trade Fair with Forum) will again be staged parallel to GIFA 2019.
