Organization of an annual World Foundry Forum

Presentation of documentation and technical studies related to the latest research and foundry advances.

World Foundry Congress

Every two years, it is extended with a World Foundry Congress that includes a vast and interesting technical programme.

The 71st World Foundry Congress "Advanced Sustainable Foundry" will bring together worldwide technicians in an event that will take place from the 19th to the 21st of May 2014 in the city of Bilbao (Spain).
