Rated as Asia’s largest and the world’s second largest expo in the metal and metallurgical industry, Metal+Metallurgy China (a collective name for China International Foundry Expo, China International Metallurgical Industry Expo, China International Industrial Furnaces Exhibition, China International Refractories and Industrial Ceramics Exhibition) has decided to be held alternately in Shanghai and Beijing every year from 2015 onwards. Adopting a different pattern of expo organization from the previous biennial event, the organizers will carry out strategic cooperation with an internationally leading exhibition company. By joining hands with Deutsche Messe AG and its China subsidiary, Hannover Milano Fairs Shanghai Ltd., they intend to build a world-class event in the industry with advanced concepts and professional services and provide superb opportunities for Chinese enterprises to “go global” and overseas companies to enter the Chinese market.
Metal+Metallurgy China covers an extensive range of exhibits, and features four simultaneously-held highly specialized international expos, namely, Foundry Expo, Metallurgical Industry Expo, Industry Furnace Exhibition and Refractories and Industrial Ceramics Exhibition. It will be held from June 13 to June 16, 2017 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
This Expo is jointly organized by China Iron and Steel Association, China Foundry Association, Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society (CMES), Metallurgical Council of CCPIT, Industrial Furnace Institution of CMES. And Hannover Milano Fairs Shanghai Ltd is responsible for the overseas organization. The exhibiting space is expected to exceed 80,000 square meters. In addition to the conventional exhibitions, Metal + Metallurgy China 2017 will have new contents in Industrial Robots and Automation, and will incorporate a metal deep processing section that covers the entire industrial chain. A series of value-added activities such as summit forums that are to be carried out during the Expo period will create excellent opportunities for industry updates, exchange of views and mutual cooperation.
