Thank you Message

Dear Attendees,

On behalf of the Forgetech India 2016 Organising Committee, we thank you for attending the 1st AIFI Biennial Conference, Forgetech India 2016 during 3-4 December, 2016 at Hyatt Regency, Gurgaon.

We sincerely hope that you found the conference-cum-exhibition informative and worthwhile. The event witnessed participation from 44 exhibiting companies across India, China, Japan, South Korea, Belgium, Italy, Germany and Switzerland and footfall of 590 delegates.

The primary goal of this conference was to bring together the Indian forging fraternity under one roof to discuss the challenges facing the industry as a whole and to facilitate exchange of ideas to develop possible strategies as to how the Indian forging industry could expand further.

We believe that our diverse and dynamic group of speakers and panellists provided in-depth insight, as well as, affordable and practical methods of manufacturing of forged products.

Your presence helped to make this event a great success and your enthusiasm and positive spirit helped make our time together both productive and fun. We wish you all the best and hope that you continue to be engaged with the Association of Indian Forging Industry (AIFI). We look forward to have you again during the second edition of Forgetech India.
