METAL expo’s new format

This year's METAL and its accompanying exhibitions, Heat Treatment, Aluminium & Nonfermet, Control-Tech and Recycling, come in a slightly refreshed format. The expo cluster is held for two days (previously, this has been a three-day event). The long standing foundry industry event is held on 24th and 25th September 2024 at Targi Kielce, Poland.

The organisers say the exhibition in its shorter, i.e. two-day version, will not be to the detriment to the event agenda; this alteration has been made in response to customer feedback from existing exhibitors and visitors who have supported the expo for several years. The organisers said: “Having carried out extensive consultations and analysis of the current foundry market and industry situation, we have decided to help companies reduce the costs associated with coming to Kielce and participating in the event, which has been held for almost three decades.”

Speaking about the decision, Metal Expo project manager Piotr Pawelec said: “I am convinced that shortening the expo and holding it in a two day format will positively impact both exhibitors, especially foreign ones, who will reduce costs, and visitors, who will receive the same agenda condensed in just two days. We have analysed the last expo, and, together with our partners and exhibitors, we concluded that the first two days were the most popular. Thus, continuing the event as a three day show in the current market conditions is no longer justified.” In response to the market and the sector’s needs, the congress’s offer has been expanded. Thus the Foundry Goes Green conference, which has previously proven very popular, has been extended to two days.
