The International Fair of Technologies for Foundry METAL is the backbone of the "Targi Kielce Industrial Autumn", however the accompanying events plethora are event's competitive advantage . The CONTROL-TECH Fair of Industrial Measuring Technology and Non-Destructive Testing is not only a rich offer. The expo abounds with instrument and measuring machines showcased by manufacturers, as well as numerous seminars and lectures. The expo presentations are enhanced with software systems for computer-aided quality assurance as well as and opto-electronics, which have already proven particularly useful. ALUMINUM fair & NONFERMET are a permanent fixture on the calendar of the Kielce exhibition and congress centre; they complement and put the very important sector of the non-ferrous metals industry in the limelight. Companies related to the broadly defined heat treatment will present their offer for the third time at the Heat Treatment Fair show. The expo stands feature heating devices and related technologies. In the age of ecology, RECYCLING is a very important aspect, which is why the show puts this high on the agenda. The expo organisers welcome all the companies which deal in scrap metal processing as well as suppliers of specialised recycling machines, appliances and means of transport as well as of ecological solutions, control and measurements apparatuses.

Owing to its specificity, the foundry industry relies heavily on trade fairs. This sector, like any other industry in the world, is also fluctuating due to external factors such as the pandemic and the war in Ukraine. However, the latest indicators show that the current situation offers a good opportunity to invest and build your business in order to prepare it for the upcoming increases in demand. Since the first METAL expo's edition, Targi Kielce has focused on creation of a platform designed to talk shop and establish business contacts between manufacturers, suppliers and customers of casting equipment. Thus the Kielce event has become an unofficial bridge between the east and the west,  as the expo has witnessed global-scale business contacts establishment. Belgium, Belarus, France, Germany and China and many other countries have returned to the expo in the capacity of exhibitors and business-visitors. After the 2018 edition, Targi Kielce was pronounced the Silk Road stop for the foundry industry.
