FIA Announces Date Change for Forge Fair 2025
North America’s Largest Forging Industry Trade Show to Take Place May 13-15, 2025

[April 16, 2024 – Cleveland, OH] – The Forging Industry Association has announced a change in dates for Forge Fair 2025, North America’s Largest Forging Industry Trade Show. Originally scheduled for May 6-8, 2025, the expo has been moved to the following week, May 13-15, 2025. The show will still take place at the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland, Ohio as planned.

This change in dates comes with a shift to a larger exhibit hall with more space for additional booths and displays, and an opportunity to avoid other shows impacting our exhibitor base.

“The month of May is a busy time for trade shows, and Forge Fair is such a vital show for our industry,” said Angela Gibian, Show Manager and Deputy Chief Executive of the Forging Industry Association. “We want to provide both our exhibitors and our attendees with the largest, most successful show possible. This change in dates will better equip us to do so.”

Forge Fair attracts approximately 2,000 forging professionals representing more than 20 countries to see the latest developments in forging products and technologies. Participants attend to see new products, make purchasing decisions and network with each other. No other event enables suppliers and forgers to connect with more qualified potential customers.
