Strong interest for Wire and Tube 2018

Both events will he held concurrently from 16 to 20 April 2018 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.

As before, the two number one trade fairs in their industries will occupy 16 exhibition halls, mapping the entire spectrum. They will cover manufacturing and finishing, process automation, measurement and control engineering, cable technologies, tube manufacturing and processing, raw materials, the raw material trade, pipelines, OCTG technology, profiles, pre-used machinery and plastic tubes.

Wire and Tube have grown steadily since the mid-1980s. Every two years Düsseldorf becomes the meeting place for key players of these industries. The demand for equipment, machinery and products from the cable, wire and tube industries is also growing.

As in the past, countries with particularly strong exhibitor participation are Italy, Belgium, France, Spain, Austria, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Turkey, the UK, Sweden and Germany. But a large number of registrations have also been received from the US, South Korea, Taiwan, India, Japan and China for the 2018 exhibition.
