The large network of METEF 2014

METEF, expo of customized technologies for the aluminium and innovative metals industry whose 10th edition is scheduled at Veronafiere on June 11th through 13th 2014, is arousing lively interest for its innovative exhibition formula combining different expos: METEF, FOUNDEQ, METALRICICLO- RECOMAT and ALUMOTIVE. And this latter show - Exhibition of Innovative Solutions, Components and Technological Materials for Original Equipment for the Transport Industry - is the new entry of METEF 2014, a choice aiming at stressing our country’s worldwide role as manufacturer of high - added - value customized products.

The calendar of the exhibition also follows a new formula as the show will run in June 2014 for three days - Wednesday to Friday - instead of four.

Several initiatives will present METEF 2014 as one of the major global events in the world of aluminium and innovative materials thus promoting the sharing of know-how and making offer and demand meet.

An increasingly wider network of companies, associations, authorities and consortia makes of METEF 2014 one of the most advanced international showcases of customized solutions for the aluminium and innovative metals technologies which are the flagship products of the Italian manufacturing industry and of a good share of the international one (30% of METEF exhibitors come from abroad). The next show relies on the participation of new partner countries thanks to the collaboration with GAC (Gulf Aluminium Council, which represents the Gulf’s aluminium industry) and with the Iran Foundry Syndicate that will be present with an area dedicated to the Iranian foundries specialized in automotive parts. An Iranian delegation including over 40 sector operators has already been credited at the Verona - based exhibition.

Communication and internationalization are key words to METEF and Veronafiere: a network of delegations in 60 foreign countries all over the world will identify specialized buyers and will offer trade matching services. In the meantime, a promotional Roadshow has started which will stop this year in several cities worldwide, from Brazil to the USA, from Turkey to Germany, to present the event.

ALUMOTIVE will host "SAVE THE WEIGHT", created by METEF technical committee and aiming at promoting excellent cases contributing to vehicle lightweight. Participation is possible by submitting a specialized solution.
Participation to this event is chaired by a dedicated commission including AIB (Industrial Association of Brescia), University of Padua (Faculty of Engineering), University of Brescia, University of Bologna, CERMET (Authority for Quality Certification and Research) and ATA (Automotive Technical Association) that will select and evaluate the project leading to a real innovation in this sector.
This initiative is promoted in association with the Cluster for Lightweight Design (Leichtbau - Cluster, LC), a network of companies, research institutes and service providers dedicated to assist and promote cross - industrial cooperation in the field of lightweight design.
