Expanding the range of products at EUROGUSS

From 16th to 18th January 2018, the European diecasting sector will meet once again in Nuremberg at the EUROGUSS trade fair. The new director exhibitions at NürnbergMesse, Christopher Boss, shares his thoughts about the development of EUROGUSS and the international involvement of the NürnbergMesse Group in the diecasting sector.

“In Europe, EUROGUSS is the leading trade fair for the entire diecasting value-added chain – from raw materials through to technology and processes up to finished products.

“In terms of both exhibitors as well as visitors, EUROGUSS has in recent years recorded impressive growth rates. In 2018, we are seeking to break the 600-mark for exhibitors and further increase internationality.

We will retain the product range core of the event, but further extend the range depth. The focus of EUROGUSS will continue to be Europe. Of course, diecasting is in particular dependent on the automotive sector, but we will also be increasingly inviting target groups from other sectors to the event, for whom the diecasting process with its many advantages offers a genuine alternative.

The EUROGUSS concept has proved itself most effectively. This is confirmed to us not only by the fantastic exhibitor and visitor figures from the last event [580 exhibitors, more than 12,000 visitors], but also by the top ratings awarded in the exhibitors’ and visitors’ survey. 98 per cent of the visitors surveyed stated that they were satisfied with the range presented at the fair and 94 per cent of exhibitors assess their trade fair participation as an overall success. So, we should not tinker with the trade fair concept in general. Nevertheless, it is necessary to further refine the concept and extend the trade fair range to include attractive formats.”

For 2018 Boss said many exhibitors have enlarged their stands. “Of course, all the market leaders are once again present, but new exhibitors are also on board. The theme of surface technology, which was highlighted for the first time at the 2016 event, is being extended further and presented in a pavilion. The ‘Forschung, die Wissen Schafft’ (Research for Knowledge) special show, where the latest research projects from universities and technical colleges are presented, has been popular with the trade visitors for years.

“It too will of course also be part of the event again. The exhibitors and visitors can also look forward to interesting lectures and presentations on current themes and issues at the International German Die Casting Congress specialist event, which is being organised by our esteemed partner, the VDD, Association of German Die-Casting Foundries. There will be excitement surrounding the award presentations for the International Aluminium Die Casting Competition and the Zinc Die Casting
