ALUCAST 2021 - VIRTUAL CONFERENCE & EXHIBITION
...

The last two financial years have been challenging for the Die Casting Industry like never before because of the Covid-19 Pandemic with a volatile, uncertain, complex and more or less ambiguous business environment. All of us have taken some effort, courage and spirit to accept, adapt and move on. We see this sudden and unprecedented crisis as a challenge but not a road block. As Albert Einstein says ‘IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DIFFICULTY LIES OPPORTUNITY!’ It’s time to show resilience and it’s the Time for Action Now!!!

ALUCAST adapted to the new normal quickly and hosted its last edition of the Annual Event virtually very successfully – ALUCAST 2020 Virtual Conference on the theme - ALUMINIUM CASTING TECHNOLOGY FOR THE 20S… The Virtual Conference received an overwhelming response and very encouraging participation from the Die Casting Fraternity. Though we are witnessing good recovery from the pandemic situation, we still need to be cautious and ensure safety of one and all. So, we would be going virtual for this year’s Annual Event too. The Aluminium Casters’ Association (ALUCAST)®️, India is hosting its Annual Event ALUCAST 2021 – Virtual Conference and Exhibition on the Theme CURRENT TRENDS IN DIE CASTING on the 9th – 10th – 11th December 2021 that shall focus on sustainable development and growth of the Die Casting Industry moving ahead amidst current challenges - The fluctuating prices of Aluminium, increasing manufacturing costs, shortage of skilled manpower and the resultant pressures on cash flows that has become a major concern for the Die Casting Industry today.

ALUCAST 2021 assures the best value, experience and visibility for the Sponsors, Exhibitors, Speakers, Delegates and the Visitors.

We look forward to welcoming you to the upcoming 27th edition of the ALUCAST Annual Event.
