A joint initiative is launching a double-pack in Indonesia: GIFA and METEC Indonesia will take place for the first time in Jakarta from September 13 to 16, 2023, addressing the metallurgy and foundry industry. The organisers behind the new trade fairs are Messe Düsseldorf Asia (MDA) in Singapore, the subsidiary of Messe Düsseldorf Group for the Southeast Asian market, and PT Pamerindo Indonesia, part of Informa Markets.

Emphasising the benefits for all parties involved, Wolfram N. Diener, president and CEO of Messe Düsseldorf, says: "We go where we see the highest potential: Asia, Latin America and Africa. The demand for investment in industry and infrastructure is huge here – as is the need for professional trading and networking platforms to drive these projects. This pays off for the national industries, for the economic growth of the target markets and for our international customers with new business opportunities arising. In this way, we remain a relevant partner for business and strengthen the leading position of Düsseldorf's No. 1 trade fairs".

GIFA and METEC Indonesia extend the portfolio "Metallurgy & Foundry Technologies" of Messe Düsseldorf, which pools the trade fairs GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST under the umbrella of "The Bright World of Metals". The new exhibitions will cover a comprehensive spectrum of machines, plants and technologies ranging from additive manufacturing, foundry machines and processing plants to new technologies for user industries in various vertical markets. They will be co-located with Mining Indonesia, which PT Pamerindo Indonesia will organise for the 20th time in 2023.

Ian Roberts, vice president of Informa Markets Asia, underscores the added value of this cooperation: "The co-location will open more opportunities for Indonesian foundry, metal works and casting sectors to grow. Furthermore, as the largest economy in Southeast Asia, the country offers new and wider business potentials, especially with the government plan to make Indonesia a manufacturing hub for Southeast Asia."
