Metal + Metallurgy China to alternate between two cities

News this week: Billed as Asia’s largest and the world’s second largest expo serving the metal and metallurgical industry, Metal + Metallurgy China will alternative between Shanghai and Beijing each year from 2015. The biennial event was last held in Beijing earlier in 2014. It will next be held in Shanghai in 2015. The decision was taken due to the fast developing industry in both eastern and northern China.

Metal + Metallurgy China, jointly organised by China Iron and Steel Association, China Foundry Association, Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society (CMES), Metallurgical Council of CCPIT, Industrial Furnace Institution of CMES and Hannover Milano Fairs Shanghai Ltd., includes four expos: China International Foundry Expo, China International Metallurgical Industry Expo, China International Industrial Furnaces Exhibition, China International Refractories and Industrial Ceramics Exhibition.

The 2015 Shanghai event will be held from 31st March to 3rd April at the new China Expo Complex in Hongqiao covering over 80,000 m2. The 2014 Beijing edition was held at New China International Exhibition Center (NCIEC) from 19th to 22nd May, covering 108,000 m2 of space. It attracted 1,335 exhibitors and 81,623 visitors.
