Past trade fairs

IFEX 2024

International trade fair in India celebrates its 20th anniversary

The strong growth of the Indian foundry industry was the main theme of this year's IFEX in Bangalore. Fittingly, the motto of the 72nd Indian Foundry Congress was "Unleashing the opportunities". 

In addition to the growth of the Indian foundry industry, the focus was also on the targeted improvement of quality standards and the topic of sustainability. The Gargi HA stand was a central meeting point for international trade visitors and the specialist presentations also attracted a great deal of interest. In addition, there was great networking in the social media and IFEX forums. 

With a record number of around 17,000 visitors, the trade fair was a complete success for both the organizers and the entire HA Group team!
