The world’s largest foundry show, GIFA, will be held in Dusseldorf, Germany on June 25-29, 2019. SFSA is arranging for foundry tours in France the week before (week of 6/17) and will be attending GIFA. Unfortunately, we were unable to secure a block of rooms near Dusseldorf due to the demand for the show. We have booked at the Crowne Plaza (details below) tentatively from 6/23 to 29, and would recommend you setup a reservation here or nearby to participate as a group and to best take advantage of transportation logistics (tour bus will use this location and it is easy to take public transportation to GIFA and the airport). We are working on setting up the logistics and costs for the tours.


As space will be limited, please RSVP with Corrine O’Connell now to confirm your attendance.
