Delegates to Intergalva 2015 asked ‘Where Next?’. Intergalva veterans will know that next on the rotation of host countries is Germany. The Industrieverband Feuerverzinken (German Galvanizers Association) is very much looking forward to hosting Intergalva in June 2018.
EGGA is currently working with colleagues in Germany to identify the exact city and venue. Germany has excellent conference and exhibition facilities – so there will be some difficult choices to make. A high priority will be placed on the exhibition facilities that will be needed to showcase the best of Germany’s ‘Made in Germany’ technology and services for the world’s galvanizing industry.
With Germany at the heart of Europe’s galvanizing industry and its leading position in technological development within the industry, we can expect it to be as popular as an Intergalva location as it was for Berlin in 2000. At that time, Berlin was at the start of its regeneration after reunification. Much has happened since then. Who knows – we may go back and see how the city has moved on! But there are other options also. Expect an announcement before the end of 2015 and probably much sooner than that.
