An interactive meet between Industry leaders from both Buyers' and sellers' side is planned. This will give an opportunity to understand each other with regard to Buyers' requirements & expectations and have an open discussion on the challenges currently faced by the sellers in meeting the requirements.


IFC 2020 B2B meetings will facilitate the Casting Manufacturers to meet the Buyer of castings with prior appointments.

This meet will prove to be an excellent opportunity for the foundries, specially the MSME foundries, to interact with the casting buyers. The profile of the participating foundries shall be given to the prospective buyers who will screen the profiles and accord appointments to the desired foundries. Fruitful discussion will culminate in business relationship.

Many foundry units are expected to take part in this grand event that will pave the way for the development of new businesses. All this and much more for a nominal fee of Rs. 5000/-.
