About Us

The Virtual Actuarial Conclave (VAC) is an annual flagship event hosted by the Institute of Actuaries of India. It is a platform which brings renowned global speakers and eminent dignitaries from across the globle together and provides unmatched learning and networking opportunities to the members of actuarial community. It is one of the most sought-after events amongst the students, who look forward to it every year to learn from the industry leaders and trendsetters and connect with the potential employers.

VAC encapsulates a series of large expert sessions that cover a wide variety of Actuarial topics at a macro level, while diving deep into the fundamentals and on-ground challenges with smaller groups. This lends a comprehensive angle to the event, making it relevant for one and all. With a new and emerging era of digitization, VAC is an effort to continue developing the profession and encouraging valuable discussions through its platform. By embracing the digital format, this annual event that offers a sense of belonging to the entire actuarial community, has now become more accessible and global in nature.

Blast From the Past
FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK
The ALUCAST Conference and Exhibition widely acclaimed by the Die Casting Industry and allied industries, is an Annual Event, organized by the Aluminium Casters’ Association (ALUCAST)®️, India. This event serves as a forum for exchange of ideas, technical know-how and brainstorming, with the participation of eminent experts in the various Die Casting arenas from India and abroad.

I am delighted to announce that the 27th edition of this annual event - ALUCAST 2021 is being organized on the 9th – 10th – 11th of December 2021 in the Virtual Mode. The Theme for ALUCAST 2021 is CURRENT TRENDS IN DIE CASTING.

The Die Casting Industry has been going through challenging times since the last financial year because of the unprecedented disruptions caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic. The fluctuating prices of Aluminium, increasing manufacturing costs, shortage of skilled manpower and the resultant pressures on cash flows has become a major concern today. These challenges would appear more for the SMEs.

ALUCAST 2021 Virtual Conference will focus on the above referred challenges faced by the Die Casting Industry and deliberate on methods to tackle these issues and revive the Die Casting Industry post pandemic and pave the path towards sustainable growth.

I have pleasure in inviting Professionals, Engineers and Academicians to present Technical Papers on the various topics identified for ALUCAST 2021 Virtual Conference.

The ALUCAST 2021 Virtual Exhibition is being concurrently organized, and shall provide the Die Casters, manufacturers and suppliers from the allied industries a platform to showcase their products and services to prospective clients and revive business opportunities.

The Event assures the best value, experience and visibility for the Sponsors, Exhibitors, Speakers, Delegates and the Visitors. I extend a Warm Invitation to all the Professionals, Engineers, Academicians and the Students of Engineering and Technology to participate in this 3-Days Virtual Conference and Exhibition.

The Advisory Committee – ALUCAST 2021 looks forward to the support of the entire Die Casting Fraternity, as in the past. I thank you for your continued support and patronage.

With best wishes

The last two financial years have been challenging for the Die Casting Industry like never before because of the Covid-19 Pandemic with a volatile, uncertain, complex and more or less ambiguous business environment. All of us have taken some effort, courage and spirit to accept, adapt and move on. We see this sudden and unprecedented crisis as a challenge but not a road block. As Albert Einstein says ‘IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DIFFICULTY LIES OPPORTUNITY!’ It’s time to show resilience and it’s the Time for Action Now!!!

ALUCAST adapted to the new normal quickly and hosted its last edition of the Annual Event virtually very successfully – ALUCAST 2020 Virtual Conference on the theme - ALUMINIUM CASTING TECHNOLOGY FOR THE 20S… The Virtual Conference received an overwhelming response and very encouraging participation from the Die Casting Fraternity. Though we are witnessing good recovery from the pandemic situation, we still need to be cautious and ensure safety of one and all. So, we would be going virtual for this year’s Annual Event too. The Aluminium Casters’ Association (ALUCAST)®️, India is hosting its Annual Event ALUCAST 2021 – Virtual Conference and Exhibition on the Theme CURRENT TRENDS IN DIE CASTING on the 9th – 10th – 11th December 2021 that shall focus on sustainable development and growth of the Die Casting Industry moving ahead amidst current challenges - The fluctuating prices of Aluminium, increasing manufacturing costs, shortage of skilled manpower and the resultant pressures on cash flows that has become a major concern for the Die Casting Industry today.
