GIFA Mexico to debut fall 2024

Messe Düsseldorf, host of trade fairs in the metalcasting industry, says it will expand its portfolio with the addition of GIFA Mexico. The event will take place October 16–18, 2024, in Mexico City.

Mexico’s strategic location, coupled with its thriving automotive industry, has made it an attractive market for the metallurgy and foundry sector. The country’s most important export goods––cars and car components––are valued at $41.6 billion and $27.1 billion, respectively. With rising demand for cast components, particularly from the automotive industry, Mexico offers high potential in segments such as die-casting technology and aluminum casting. This presents a significant market for equipment providers and upstream suppliers catering to die-casting companies.

As part of Messe Düsseldorf’s renowned “The Bright World of Metals” trade fair series, GIFA Mexico is poised to become a pivotal event for innovations, knowledge sharing, and business opportunities in the metal-working industries. Complementing the existing trade fairs held in Düsseldorf, along with satellite events in India, Southeast Asia, and Indonesia, GIFA Mexico will serve as a hub for industry professionals and experts looking to establish a foothold in the Mexican market.

The event will encompass a comprehensive range of machinery, plants, materials, and technological innovations. From additive manufacturing and foundry machines to castings catering to diverse application industries, GIFA Mexico will address the needs of automotive, construction, energy and gas, metal works, and steel mills, among others.
