‘Creative Foundry’ - the 73rd World Congress of the Foundry Industry held in ICE Krakow.

The 73rd World Congress of the Foundry Industry will be held in ICE Krakow on 23-27 September 2018. It targets individuals, companies, organisations and editorial teams interested in or involved in the foundry  business sector. 

The World Congress of the Foundry Industry is the key event for this business sector. It provides a perfect opportunity for exchanging knowledge and experience, as well as information on innovation and latest developments in this sector.  

The motto of the 73rd World Congress of the Foundry Industry is: ‘Creative Foundry’. The event programme comprises the following wide-ranging thematic blocks: materials, technological developments, digital technology, management, and environment.

It is worth noting that it has been twenty five years since members of the World Foundry Organisation (WFO) last visited Poland. The period has been an important one in the history of both our country and this business sector. 

The Congress inauguration and lecture sessions will be held in the ICE Krakow Congress Centre, with its stunning view of Krakow’s Royal Castle. The sessions will be complemented by fascinating exhibitions, including international industry trade fairs in Kielce and the ‘Creative Foundry’ exhibition in ICE Krakow, which is to be organised in cooperation with PIF. The Congress programme will also include a number of study visits for conference participants to the present day Polish foundry industry. A number of site seeing tours to the  most interesting tourist regions of Poland will also be organised for event participants.
