Trade fair EUROGUSS with new exhibitor record
"Good luck" is the message from 12 to 14 January 2016 at EUROGUSS in Nuremberg. Once again, the international die-casting trade fair has a great deal to offer: the latest technology, processes and products on the exhibition stands presented by total of around 550 exhibitors, the "Forschung, die Wissen schaf(f)t" special show, ("Research for Knowledge") the new "Oberflächentechnik" Pavilion ("Surface Technology"), specialist presentations and current trends and developments in the Congress along with the award presentation ceremonies for the two aluminium and zinc die-casting competitions. The total of around 11,000 expected trade visitors at EUROGUSS are decision-makers from the automotive industry, machinery and equipment construction, the electronics industry, energy and medical technology sectors along with die-casting foundries.
"EUROGUSS is continuing on its course of growth", says a delighted Heike Slotta, Director Exhibitions, from NürnbergMesse. "Already in 2014, with 470 exhibitors, we registered a substantial increase of over 20%. At EUROGUSS 2016 we are expecting around 550 exhibitors. This proves: the exhibition concept of EUROGUSS is absolutely spot on, the demand for die-casting products is continuing unbroken." In order to offer all exhibitors sufficient space, the previous exhibition Halls 7 and 7A have now therefore been joined by Hall 6.
Around half the EUROGUSS exhibitors are international. After Germany with a span gap, the list of the most important exhibiting countries from Europe is headed by Italy followed by Turkey, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, France and Slovenia.
