Trade Fair CastForge: Physical presence vital for the trade fair
CastForge will not be held in 2021. The exhibitors at CastForge jointly agreed with Messe Stuttgart to postpone the trade fair by another year. The next Trade Fair for Castings and Forgings with Processing is therefore scheduled to take place from June 21 to 23, 2022.
Due to the continued lack of opening prospects for the trade fair industry, the risks relating to an event in June this year are no longer acceptable for the majority of exhibitors. However, a physical meeting is vital for the industry. The exhibitors at CastForge, around 62 % of whom travel to Stuttgart from countries outside Germany, therefore jointly agreed with Messe Stuttgart to postpone the trade fair by another year. The new date for CastForge is June 21 to 23, 2022.
There is still great support in the industry for this young trade fair, which celebrated an impressive première at Messe Stuttgart in 2018 and then recorded strong growth among exhibitors. In the latest survey around 80 % of the participating exhibitors from home and abroad said today that they would attend the trade fair on its new date. "A physical presence is vital for CastForge," said Gunnar Mey, Department Director Industrial Trade Fairs at Messe Stuttgart. We are therefore continuing the existing concept together with the industry and are taking every step to ensure that the Trade Fair for Castings and Forgings with Processing can be staged safely and successfully in 2022.
