According to all indications, the trend will continue this year. Although the event is held at the end of September, companies from Europe and outside have already registered to join in. In 2021, the pandemic situation resulted in the fact that the METAL expo was clustered with the related STOM show and became a part of the "Industrial Autumn" - a large-scale event organized by Targi Kielce for the processing industry. In 2022, METAL returns to its traditional date: 20 to 22 September.
The exhibitors' list includes ASK CHEMICALS, PREC-ODLEW, EUROCAST, PETROFER - POLSKA, EUROCAST Industries, as well as SIMPSON Technologies GmbH, HIRADO Kinzoku Kogyo Co. ltd., Heinrich Wagner Sinto Maschinenfabrik GmbH, Omega Sinto Foundry Machinery Ltd and Laempe Mössner Sinto GmbH, WÖHR, SGM Magnetics Spa, SUHAIL INDUSTRIAL HOLDING Group from Qatar and AGRATI from Italy, as well as IDRA Italy and TAV Vacuum Furnaces Spa and BOSIO d.o.o. Industrial Furnace Solutions from Slovenia, AAGES from Romania and DIAMANT METALLPLASTIC from Germany, MAMMUT Polska and BARABASZ and its Partners from Germany. According to the organizers, HÜTTENES - ALBERTUS, GEMCO Netherlands, FOUNDRY ECOCER Italy, KANTHAL GmbH Germany, METALS MINERALS, the Czech Republic's JAP INDUSTRIES sro, and SAVELLI Technologies Srl from Italy have recently announced their participation.
Owing to its specificity, the foundry industry relies heavily on trade fairs. Since the first METAL expo's edition, Targi Kielce has focused on creating a platform designed to talk shop and establish business contacts between manufacturers, suppliers, and customers of casting equipment. Thus the Kielce event has become an unofficial bridge between the east and the west, as the expo has witnessed global-scale business contacts establishment. Belgium, France, Germany, China and many other countries have returned to the expo in the capacity of exhibitors and business visitors. After the 2018 edition, Targi Kielce was pronounced the Silk Road stop for the foundry industry.
