The Association of German Die Casting Foundries (VDD) has committed to at least another four years as the sponsoring institution of the EUROGUSS trade fair. The VDD will also continue to organise the German Die Casting Congress held every two years parallel to EUROGUSS at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg. This has now been reaffirmed by the VDD within the framework of a contract renewal with NürnbergMesse. The industry association and trade fair company are therefore set to continue their successful collaboration into the future.

“We are absolutely delighted to be able to continue to write the EUROGUSS success story into the future alongside the VDD,” says Rolf Keller from the NürnbergMesse management board. “Die casting is a key sector for German industry, and parts and components die cast from aluminium, magnesium or zinc will continue to grow in importance in the future. At EUROGUSS and the German Die Casting Congress, foundries address the challenges of the future.”

“Every two years, EUROGUSS is an unmissable event for foundries and their suppliers in Germany and the rest of Europe,” adds Hartmut Fischer, President of the VDD and general manager of Stihl Magnesium Die-Casting. “The die casting sector needs this kind of platform for dialogue and knowledge-sharing more than ever. It’s where we come together to discuss new issues and challenges, such as carbon neutral production or the shift to electric drive systems for cars, and to explore ideas and potential solutions. We therefore had no hesitation in extending our collaboration as the sponsoring institution of EUROGUSS and organiser of the parallel German Die Casting Congress. And in fact, we will also be partnering with EUROGUSS in future to present the European Die Casting Award at the trade fair.”

The next EUROGUSS will take place at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 18 to 20 January 2022 alongside the VDD German Die Casting Congress. For the first time, VDD and EUROGUSS will also be holding the European Die Casting Competition and awards ceremony at the trade fair. For more information about the trade fair please go to:
