World Foundry Organization

Polish Foundrymen’s Association


It’s been a quarter of a century since we last had the privilege of hosting members of the World Foundry Organisation in Poland. This has been a crucial period in the history of our country and our industry. So it comes as no surprise that we are thrilled that in September 2018 we will once again have the pleasure of greeting you in Krakow and other Polish cities. This time, WFO sessions will take place in a modern convention centre with a view of the Royal Castle in Krakow. They will be accompanied by fascinating exhibitions, including international trade fairs, and Polish industry and research centres will also be represented. We are certain that the Congress will also be a time for cultural and aesthetic experiences. Krakow is waiting for participants from all over the world, and the organisers will do their best to make the occasion a memorable display of the country’s hospitality. Please come visit us!
