Green Makes Business Sense


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/-.

  1. The MSME sector in India has about 5000 foundries, spanning from Patiala in the North to Coimbatore in the South.
  2. The Make in India campaign has opened up new opportunities for MSMEs and at the same time put across challenges, like the need for investments in modern manufacturing/design tools, balanced automation, up-scaling of IT and stringent quality requirements.
  3. In order to facilitate the MSME foundries, IFC has planned for an exclusive MSME Conclave on 27th Feb 2020, which will prepare the Foundrymen to face the challenges in productivity improvement through low cost automation, skill development and B2B meetings.
  4. This conclave will bring together MSME foundries, casting buyers and MSME ministry officials on a common platform to facilitate deliberations and enlighten the foundries to understand the schemes floated by the ministry.
  5. Various MSME clusters across India will be sharing their challenges & expectations.

Aluminium, the light weight metal is expected to find increased usage in the automotive industry.

To make significant improvements in aluminium productivity and to prepare for a rapidly growing market, the IFC will also focus on Aluminium, with a separate Aluminium Conclave. This Conclave will provide opportunities for Engineers, Programmers, Die designers, Simulation engineers and Tool makers, with a special focus on 3D printing and fast track development.

Eminent speakers from the Aluminium industry will be invited for a discussion in this session.


In line with our theme of Paradigm Shift, IFC 2020 aims to connect international companies to showcase their products and services to the developing market.
