GIFA is one of the world’s four leading metals and metalworking trade fairs taking place parallel every three years in Duesseldorf: GIFA (International Foundry Trade Fair), METEC (International Metallurgical Technology Trade Fair), THERMPROCESS (International Trade Fair for Thermo Process Technology) and NEWCAST (International Castings Trade Fair). Top-class congresses and forums complement all these events.
