From the 2nd – 4th September, wire and Tube Middle East Africa, together with GIFA and METEC Middle East Africa, presented themselves within the METAL & STEEL EGYPT trade fair for the first time at the Egypt International Exhibition Center in Cairo.
The regions of Egypt, the Middle East and North Africa offer many first time exhibitors the opportunity to invest in these growing markets and this year 383 exhibitors, from 19 countries, took the opportunity to show their colours in Cairo. In addition to native companies, organisers confirmed exhibitors from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Morocco, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, the UK and the USA, among others.
There was noticeable interest in the exhibition halls right from the start of the five-in-one trade fair. Over 7,000 professionals, around 10% of which were international, travelled to Cairo across three days to network and indulge in in-depth discussions about trends and innovations from various industries, as well as discover the latest machinery, equipment, products and services from the wire, cable, tube, foundry and metallurgy sectors, in addition to the metal and steel industry.
Egyptian trade fair organiser AGEX (Arabian German Exhibitions & Publishing Ltd) has already been holding its METAL & STEEL EGYPT trade fair since 2010. The cooperation with Messe Düsseldorf this year has resulted in valuable synergy for all sectors involved.
Organisers have confirmed there will be another edition of the five trade fairs in the first half of 2025, where industry players will once again present themselves in Cairo.
