Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

(Hong Kong, 1 March 2011) The Hong Kong Diecasting and Foundry Association (HKDFA) and Guangdong Foundry Industry Association (GDFIA) are pleased to announce the co-host of the 2011 International (Shenzhen) Metal Casting Show (IMCS) to be held at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center from 25-27 May 2011. Being the core industrial area for China’s die-casting and foundry industry, Southern China presents a huge market potential with high demand for a professional exhibition. Backed by the proven track record of the last three editions organized by HKDFA, IMCS will continue it success and reach new heights with the partnership of HKDFA and GDFIA in 2011. Many leading enterprises showed support by confirming their participations. The favourable feedback demonstrated the superiority of these two major non-profit trade associations to gather industry peers in organizing a professional trade show.

Established by the Hong Kong Foundry Association and Hong Kong Diecasting Association in July 2008, HKDFA is the only leading association in the industry and is highly recognized worldwide. As the leading industry association, GDFIA has nearly 100 members. By centralizing the resources of these two associations, 2011 IMCS serves as a major trade event in Southern China grouping industry elites not only from China, but also Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau and even Southeast Asia. At the moment, sales feedback of booth reservation is encouraging. Leading enterprises in the industry, such as Yizumi, Chit Shun, Ka Shui, Shunking, Pan Pacific, Acme Alliance, Hoi Hing, Lee Kee, Ultraform, Jeco Precision, L.K. Machinery, Dongguan Modern Metal Precision, Apex Rank, Cheong Fai, Wan Ho, Eontec, Konch, Hong Bang, Zhong Tian, Go Star, Foundry Metal Work, Ming Shing, etc. have already confirmed their participation. It is expected that the show will attract 150 exhibitors with number of booths exceeding 350. Exhibit categories to be displayed at the show range from die-casting equipments to die-castings and foundry raw materials, industrial automation technology, mold & die technology and foundry equipment and industrial furnaces technology. “Southern China needs a high-quality exhibition platform for closer communications and collaborations in order to boost the industry development. The partnership of 2011 IMCS just answers the needs of the industry,” said Tang Jie Xiong, president of GDFIA.

A series of high-quality onsite activities will be held concurrently with 2011 IMCS. Among them is 2011 China/Hong Kong/Taiwan Metal Casting Industry Co-operation Forum, which is organized by HKDFA and co-organized by China Foundry Association and Taiwan Casting Industry Association. The Forum will invite local and overseas enterprise representatives, industry experts and scholars to address an array of hot topics. The “Metal Casting Production Line Showcase” provides exhibitors with a high level of exposure in a diverse range of pre-show promotional materials. They can also introduce their products and technologies at the Industry Conference. The Best Casting Competition aims to enhance the quality of casting products and promote fine-quality casting. Meanwhile, Industry Conference will feature well-known experts and senior management executives as speakers, offering educational opportunities for visitors. 2011 IMCS not only offers exhibitors and visitors a trading platform for product procurement and order placing, but also various educational opportunities to obtain first-hand information.

Extensive show promotion and recruitment of high-quality visitors are the main highlights of 2011 IMCS. This is also the fundamental element for the success of the show. The Organizer’s database contains more than 100,000 buyer data, with industry covering electronics, transportation, heavy machinery, toys, gifts and accessories, petrochemical, automobile, lighting & hardware, computer and electrical appliances, bathroom metal ware and other related industries. An estimated 40% of these data are serious buyers with identified purchasing needs. A large-scale invitation will be kicked off in February to invite senior management executives and sourcing managers to the show. Coupled with a high level of media publicity and coverage, it is expected that 2011 IMCS will draw an attendance of over 15,000 buyers from China and Southeast Asia. “HKDFA and GDFIA will make use of their resources and network in China and Southeast Asia to mobilize their members and partners to invite buyers from all over the world. We expect the show to draw huge crowd,” said Fred Tam, president of HKDFA.

MiningWorld Central Asia 2009 innovations and successes of Kazakhstan’s mining sector.

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

On 16-18 September 2009, key members of Kazakhstan’s mining industry gathered at the country’s leading mining exhibition, MiningWorld Central Asia. The event attracted lots of attention from the industry professionals in Kazakhstan and Central Asia, disproving the pre-show concerns of a low turn-out.

Once again, the event brought together several co-located specialised exhibitions: MiningWorld Central Asia 2009 (the 15th Central Asian International Mining Exploration and Mining Equipment Exhibition), Kazcomak 2009 (the 6th Kazakhstan International Heavy Construction & Machinery) and KazMet 2009 (the 2nd Central Asian International Metallurgy, Metal-Working and Machinery Construction Exhibition). The co-location of these events meant that all participating companies benefited from dedicated and joint promotion that attracted a larger and more diverse range of specialist trade visitors to the event.

Out of all the events, MiningWorld Central Asia was the largest, bringing together a host of manufacturers and suppliers for the mining and ore processing industries. International event manager, Anna Aleinikova, comments: “MiningWorld Central Asia is valued by a huge variety of companies around the world. I have been lucky enough to see many companies introduced to the Kazakhstan market through MiningWorld Central Asia and watch them establish a niche in this dynamic market. MiningWorld Central Asia is arguably the most effective forum for the mining industry in the Central Asian region.

This year, the overall event featured 246 companies from 24 countries, including leading global brands, such as Atlas Copco Central Asia LLP (Sweden/Kazakhstan), Baikonur Machinery Group (Kazakhstan), Delkor Limited (United Kingdom), Distrilab LTD (Kazakhstan), FLSmidth Rus (Russia), INNOVATION NORWAY (Norway), Innov-x (USA), Lincoln GmbH (Germany) , LLP Kazmechanomontazh (Kazakhstan), Outotec Minerals Oy (Finland), Zolotoproekt (Russia), Sulzer Pumps Finland (Finland), Mining Machines JSC (Russia), Polevskoi Machine-Building Plant JSC (Russia), Tyazhmash JSC (Russia) and LLP EnergoCentre-Asia LLP (Kazakhstan).

Two months after the 2009 exhibition, booking for next year’s event is already well underway. Aleinikova explains: “MiningWorld Central Asia continues to have a wide appeal internationally, with 34% of the exhibition space for 2010 event already sold. Every year, the show attracts thousands of trade specialists keen to meet companies who are new to the market and are looking for distribution, as well as those who are already well established in Kazakhstan and are looking to strengthen their business in the region.

The next edition of MiningWorld Central Asia will take in Almaty on 15-17 September 2010.
