The world's leading experts meet at METEC, the International Trade Fair for Metallurgy, Steel Casting and Steel Production. Whether machines, plants and products for the steel industry, environmental protection, resource conservation or energy efficiency: METEC is a must see for those who want to play an active role in shaping tomorrow's industry. A unique concept brings unique contacts: the international trade fair quartet GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST is an ideal platform for meetings and business, because international buyers, users, experts and decision-makers from the metallurgy, heating technology and casting industries meet here at four events at the same time and in the same place. The high proportion of investment decision-makers also makes this trade fair quartet a highly efficient meeting place for successful business transactions.
A unique concept
International congresses, symposia and industry meetings are unique know-how platforms that bring theory and practice together and offer an excellent opportunity for networking and exchange.
METEC is a must
The world's leading experts meet at this international trade fair for metallurgy, steel casting and steel production. Machines, plants and products for the steel industry, environmental protection, resource conservation and energy efficiency will be on show. METEC is a must for anyone who wants to play an active role in shaping tomorrow's industry.
The trio of success
METEC is unbeatable with its accompanying congresses EMC (European Metallurgical Conference) and ESTAD (European Steel Technology and Application Days). Here, everything revolves around steel as a material, its production and applications, as well as environmental and energy aspects.
Rising energy prices, global warming and shortages of natural resources have put energy efficiency on the international agenda.
Economic Prospects of Germany
Europe's largest economy continues to grow, and is thus on course for growth for the tenth time in succession, albeit recently at a much more moderate pace. Many uncertainties in the foreign trade environment are slowing the momentum noticeably. However, investments in the construction industry and in private consumption in particular are keeping the economy going.
