CastForge will not take place in 2021 - New date: June 21-23, 2022
by David Fleschen
CastForge will not take place in 2021. In view of the continued lack of opening prospects for the trade fair industry, the risks with regard to an event in June of this year are no longer bearable for most exhibitors - a physical meeting for the industry, however, is indispensable. The exhibiting companies at CastForge, of which around 62 percent would have traveled to Stuttgart from abroad, therefore agreed together with Messe Stuttgart to postpone the date by a further year. The next trade fair for castings and forgings with machining is thus scheduled for June 21-23, 2022, at Messe Stuttgart.
Industry support for the young trade fair, which made an impressive debut at Messe Stuttgart in 2018 and subsequently saw strong growth among exhibiting companies, remains strong: in the latest survey, around 80 percent of participating exhibitors from Germany and abroad already announced their participation in the new trade fair date. "Physical presence is crucial for CastForge," knows Gunnar Mey, Head of the Industrial Trade Fairs Department at Messe Stuttgart. Together with the industry, they are therefore sticking to the existing concept and focusing on the safe and successful implementation of the trade fair for castings and forgings with machining in 2022.
