After five eventful days at the trade fair, the Bright World of Metals concluded successfully on Saturday 29 June. It fortified its international leading position as the world’s most important trade fair platform for metallurgy and casting technology. The dynamic atmosphere in the twelve halls of the Düsseldorf trade fairground was shaped by the numerous investments, spontaneous business deals and lively discussion and exchanges of expertise between exhibitors and professional visitors. Results were excellent for both exhibitors and visitors at GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS & NEWCAST, particularly in terms of how international the demographic was in comparison to previous events: 70% of the exhibitors hailed from abroad (65% in 2015) and 66% of the visitors came from foreign countries (62% in 2015).
