The largest ICOSPA event is the International Congress. Being held every three years, the congress is hosted and organised on a rotating basis by one of the member associations.
The primary focus of the ICOSPA International Congress is to establish a greater understanding of business issues and practices, technology development, safety and management practices affecting the metalforming industry.
Typical attendance includes some 300 to 500 delegates and spouses from more than 10 countries.
Meetings of the ICOSPA delegations from each member association are held to assure continued networking and communication among ICOSPA members. Participating in the Presidents Council meetings are the elected leaders, ICOSPA delegates and chief staff executives from each member association.
Focus of these meetings is to consider new opportunities to further the international relationship-building objectives of ICOSPA.
