What does EUROGUSS do to combat the shortage of skilled labour?

EUROGUSS is positioning itself as a pioneer for future-oriented development in the die casting industry. This also applies to the shortage of skilled labour and young talent. To this end, the trade fair is collaborating with new partners on innovative formats such as a digital job map, as well as the STUDENT DAY and the EUROGUSS Talent Award on site.

With these three formats - some new, some tried and tested - the international trade fair for die casting addresses the needs of the industry on site and digitally all year round. EUROGUSS is thus responding to the challenges faced by companies and utilising its reach to promote the recruitment processes of experienced specialists and encourage young talent.

Interactive Job Map with high demand for technicians and engineers

The EUROGUSS Job Map 365 goes beyond the boundaries of the trade fair. It is an interactive map on which employers present their companies and advertise open positions. Skilled workers can not only browse for interesting companies in selected regions, but also arrange a meeting with just a few clicks - without the effort of creating a CV or updating your application documents.

We need innovative, new approaches to recruit skilled labour! I see the EUROGUSS Job Map Coffee Talk as an exciting, uncomplicated opportunity to bring specialists together with companies in the die casting industry in a non-binding discussion.

The change in perspective from a trade fair where "only" products are presented to a trade fair where companies are also presented as employers is also extremely important.

This means that even before skilled workers enter the official application process, a digital "coffee talk" takes place in which employees and employers can get to know each other as equals.

In close cooperation, the trade fair and Robert Drblik, Managing Director of Work For Your World, publish the "100 Top Jobs" from the die casting industry on the digital map every month. "It's exciting that over 90 per cent of the incoming job advertisements are aimed at technicians and engineers," says Drblik. "And before interested parties apply for the jobs, they can easily find out in the coffee talks whether the position and the company offer what is important to them personally."

STUDENT DAY: A day dedicated to the future

The STUDENT DAY will take place for the first time at EUROGUSS in January 2024 and is aimed at students of technical disciplines. With a specially tailored programme of lectures, an exhibition rally and live demonstrations of high-tech machines, students will be introduced to the world of die casting. Sponsored by Oskar Frech GmbH + Co KG, this day provides an exclusive insight into the multifaceted die casting industry for young talents.

"Technology expertise is our capital, which we want and need to pass on to the next generation - with an exciting keynote speech, guided tour, Talent Award, trade fair rally and dialogue with managers - all at STUDENT DAY 2024 with FRECH as the official knowledge partner of EUROGUSS", says Alexander Marks, Managing Director of Oskar Frech.

Showing recognition, motivating young talent 

The EUROGUSS Talent Award honours bachelor's and master's theses that focus on innovations and new applications in die casting. An international jury from industry and research has already evaluated the submitted work in an online pitch and invited the best graduates to Nuremberg. The award winners present their research results to an expert audience on site. This provides impulses for the technological development of the industry, motivates young talents and brings young professionals into direct contact with industry experts.

"We quite literally give the future a stage," says Christopher Boss, Executive Director of EUROGUSS. "By combining networking, education and recognition, the trade fair creates added value that goes far beyond the mere exhibition space."
