Germany - Organisers of the biennial die casting show Euroguss 2018 have reported record visitor numbers at the three-day fair, which ended mid-January.

The 15,000-visitor mark surpassed the previous edition noting an increase of about 25% more visitors to set a new record in visitors numbers for Euroguss 2018. It also registered more international visitors from over 60 countries, despite appalling weather conditions at the time of the show with snow and rain showers causing chaos in many parts of Germany and across Europe.

Some 641 exhibitors presented their innovations and showcased the latest trends in the industry, with more than half coming form abroad, namely after Germany (297), was Italy (128), Turkey (23), Spain (19) and both Austria and the Czech Republic with 14 exhibitors each. E-mobility, structural components, application-specific alloys and additive manufacturing were among the interesting topics discussed at many booths. Moreover, the international German Die Casting Congress, which made its debut in NCC Ost during the fair, also enjoyed very good attendance.

Show organiser Nürnberg Messe expressed satisfaction and said 90% of the visitors were involved in making procurement decisions for their businesses and announced that the next edition of Euroguss will cover four halls instead of the three this year to enable and accommodate further growth.

Thomas Krüger, CEO of the Verband Deutscher Druckgiessereien (Association of German Die-Casting Foundries, VDD), sums up the show: “Our members’ expectations were exceeded by far. The quantity and, much more importantly, the quality of the discussions with trade visitors could not have been better.” He noted too that many exhibitors had received orders covering the entire value chain in the sector and the fair provided the perfect start to a successful 2018 for the German die-casting industry.

Dr. Timo Würz, General Secretary of Cemafon (European Foundry Equipment Suppliers Association), concludes: “Euroguss 2018 will further enliven the business situation for the European die-casting machine manufacturers.”
