World Foundry Congress

One of the main functions of the WFO is to unite the industry and disseminate appropriate information in a standardised and systemised manner at an annual event. To this end the World Foundry Congress, is held bi-annually for the presentation of technical papers and providing an adequate networking opportunity for those wishing to have a thorough understanding of the latest research and developments in the cast metals industry. In addition there are social events for delegates and their partners.

All Member countries are invited to be involved in each congress via the presentation of official exchange papers. In addition each Member country generally encourages a large number of delegates from their country to participate in the event.
