Industry suppliers and North American metalcasters are securing their exhibit space at Metalcasting Congress 2023, the continent’s premier gathering for the full foundry supply chain.
Coming to Cleveland’s Huntington Convention Center on April 25-27, 2023, Metalcasting Congress 2023 will attract thousands of metalcasters, casting designers and buyers, and other manufacturing decisionmakers. In addition to a busy exhibit hall, the annual event, hosted by the American Foundry Society, features presentations and panels on technical and management topics, business networking, educational courses, awards banquets, keynotes, and more.
General exhibit sales opened the morning of Oct. 27 and have already prompted a flurry of activity. Space is limited.
This is the first time since 1974 that AFS has hosted Metalcasting Congress in Cleveland. AFS CEO Doug Kurkul said the city is an ideal location for this event.
“Exhibitors understand the value of North America’s premier metalcasting trade event. They are eager to showcase their products and capabilities as well as to stand side-by-side with the industry’s greatest innovators and producers,” Kurkul said. “Cleveland’s modernized convention and hotel facilities will be the perfect setting for a dynamic Metalcasting Congress 2023.”
Exhibits are available to worldwide suppliers to the metalcasting industry, as well as to metalcasters based in North America. Companies can choose from three exhibit sizes: 10x10, 10x20, and a new, larger 10x30 option that’s perfect for exhibitors wanting to make a big splash on the show floor.
