ISTMA Europe will organize the VI European Tooling Forum on May 30, 31 and June 1, at 'Moulding Expo' show to be held in the city of Stuttgart (Germany).

This sixth edition of the Forum will be organized at ISTMA Lounge (located on Hall 4 of exhibition fairground), with technical sessions taking place on different schedules and days, having the support of European Tooling Platform.

Forum's main goal is to gather Industry representatives and policy-makers as well as other relevant representatives of appropriate Institutions along with National Tooling Associations. It is the purpose of the program to better understand technological and market trends, showing the relevance and infrastructural strategic position of Tooling, Mould and Diemaking towards the development and sustainability of the European industry.

With this initiative ISTMA aims to promote strategic actions to strength existing relationships, developing new links, involving industry's relevant political entities, academia and R&D institutions to address and work-out possible new solutions of innovative technologies and business models for a successful joint transformation of Tooling supply base and customer relationships.

The visibility, promotion and recognition of the Tooling Industry in Europe should be a permanent focus promoting a sustainable growth of the Economy.

It is clear that our Industry is an important and fundamental pillar for the whole manufacturing structure, whether in the development and industrialization of new products or in the sustainability of industrial employment and the development of the economy.

We'll be looking forward to meet you in Germany.
