La GIFA à Dusseldorf - le "mondial de la fonderie" - c'est évidement des centaines de stands de fournisseurs venant du monde entier. C'est aussi, et on l'oublie souvent, des conférences techniques (GIFA Forum, Newcast Forum, WFO Technical Forum, VDI Technical Forum) sur de très nombreuses thématiques (énergie, process, métallurgie, marchés, ..., développement de nouvelles pièces, calcul et simulation) qui se déroulent sur 4 jours (16 au 19 juin). Les conférences, en Hall 13C38 sont libres d'accès et ouvertes à tous les visiteurs de la GIFA. Elles sont probablement en allemand pour nombre d'entre elles, mais bénéficient d'une traduction simultanée en anglais.
