Global players gear up for wire® Düsseldorf 18 January 2024

With over 2,000 exhibitors, from 65 countries, already registered for this year’s edition of wire® and Tube, both international trade fairs will once again bring together the key industries of wire, cable, tubes and  pipes from 15th – 19th April in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Over 100,000m2 of fairground space has already been secured by exhibitors, with international exhibitors amounting to around two thirds of the event registrants. wire® will occupy halls 9 to 17 – with hall 16 dedicated to fastener, fixing and spring technologies. Wire and cable products and technologies will be featured in halls 9 to 12, as well as hall 15. ‘Meet China`s Expertise’ can be found in hall 14 and mesh welding machines will be located in hall 17. 

In addition to the classic themes – such as machinery and equipment for wire, cable and tube production, processing and end products – this year wire® and Tube will place a strong focus on topics such as stainless steel, hydrogen, plastic tubes, cutting and slitting technologies, as well as eMobility. In addition, the topics of fastening and joining technologies, spring manufacturing technology, as well as glass fibre technologies, continue to gain momentum. 

Numerous specialist forums, congresses, and tours, such as the international meeting of experts from the sectors, a hydrogen and eMobility congress, the ecoMetal-trails, and the daily ‘after business chill’, enrich the range of events in the exhibition halls and on the open air site.

“The Düsseldorf trade fair venue is the absolute front place for the wire® and Tube sectors when it comes to presenting innovations from the relevant industries to a broad, international audience,” comments Daniel Ryfisch, director wire®/Tube & flow technologies at Messe Düsseldorf.
