In 25 years the exhibition has become a well-reputed platform to discuss prospects of the steel industry and present the most state-of-the-art solutions and equipment. Traditionally, the exhibition provides state authorities and businessmen as well as leading Russian and international experts a good opportunity to exchange best practices, exhibit achievements, and sign mutually beneficial contracts.
Today steel enterprises make a weighty contribution to development of the national economy, raise funds, and build and modernize facilities using the most advanced solutions. An extensive use of digital technologies helps them stay competitive, optimize management processes and improve safety. These and other issues will be discussed among delegates of conferences and round tables held in parallel to Metal-Expo’2019 while the best achievements will be awarded prestigious professional awards.
In my belief, the exhibition will help promote the national steel industry in the global market and create favorable business climate in the industry. Wishing you all fruitful work, constructive dialogues, and all the best!

President of METALLURGMASH union
Over the 25 years despite the toughest economic conditions the exhibition has always ranked among the biggest international events for industry professionals. Every year the exhibition as a biggest business platform attracts up to 30k professionals from all the industry segments including company leaders, researchers, and young scientists. As a business platform, the event also contributes to prestige of engineering which was put to serious tests in the last few years.
Over its 25-year history starting with the first attempts of turning the Russian industry to innovative ways of development, the exhibition has always paid close attention to metallurgy as a science and heavy engineering as a foundation of development as well as the mining and engineering complex as a base of scientific and technical potential and safety of the state.
It is not a mere accident that a few years ago Russian and international engineers established Metallurgmash, an individual, representative and fast developing segment of the exhibition.
The event exhibiting the whole without exception mining and metallurgical complex, and its conferences, meetings, and roundtables lay a solid foundation for consolidation of steel companies, improving their competitiveness, and development of their technical and export potential.
Company leaders and professionals, members of the International Union of Metallurgical Equipment Producers (Metallurgmash) attend on a regular basis the events held during the exhibition. Over the last few weeks their speeches were widely discussed at Eurasian Aerospace Congress and Forger-2019, the 14th International Congress, yet the most promising and efficient platform for them has always been Metal-Expo events.
Hard-driving and always improving cultural events including a brain-ring game held during Metal-Expo tune exhibitors up to success.
It goes without saying that Metal-Expo’2019 will affect Russian and international sciences and industries in the most positive way. Let me thank the organizers for the brilliant event. Whishing all the exhibitors sand visitors new business contacts, fruitful information exchanges, and success.

Die Metallurgie hat als starkes Standbein der russischen wie auch der deutschen Wirtschaft eine lange Tradition. Die Branche ist ein hervorragendes Beispiel für den hohen Grad der Verflechtung und den sehr guten Stand der deutsch-russischen Wirtschaftsbeziehungen. Auch vor dem Hintergrund der deutsch-russischen Modernisierungspartnerschaft ist es wichtig, bestehende Beziehungen zu pflegen und neue Geschäftskontakte zu knüpfen. Die diesjährige Metall Expo bietet hierzu das ideale Forum. Die Metall Expo ist in den siebzehn Jahren ihres Bestehens zu einer festen Größe in der Metallindustrie geworden und hat sich in dieser Zeit zu einer der wichtigsten Messen im Bereich der Metallurgie und der Metallverarbeitung für Russland und ganz Osteuropa entwickelt.
