Welcome Message

Dear Friends,

It is with a sense of pride and achievement that we invite you to the 1st Forgetech India 2016 to mark the completion of the 50 - year old journey of AIFI.

Forgetech India 2016 is a conference-cum-exhibition meet for all those who are associated with forging and will be held from the 3rd to the 4th of December 2016 at Hyatt Regency, Gurgaon.

Forgetech India 2016 will have presentation of articles on forging related subjects during the course of the technical sessions. Associated companies will also be exhibiting their products. It would thus be an opportunity for all participants to interact with the doyens of the forging industry to observe the exhibits and enrich their knowledge on forging and emerging technologies.

This is the inaugural event and it is proposed that similar events will be held every alternate year. We shall endeavour to ensure its success.

However, our efforts will not bear fruit without your support through your participation.

We will be very happy to welcome you there.
