Messe Düsseldorf has announced that the wire® and Tube shows will be postponed until 20th – 24th June 2022. Originally scheduled for May, in consultation with the partners and associations Messe Düsseldorf decided to move the shows due to the very dynamic infection patterns and rapidly spreading Omicron variant.
Wolfram N. Diener, CEO of Messe Düsseldorf, emphasised the backing for the new trade fair dates in June: “The tenor among our exhibitors is: We want and need wire and Tube – but at a point in time that promises the biggest prospects of success. Together with the partners and associations involved we regard early summer as the ideal period for this. We not only expect infection patterns to calm down but also more people to be able to enter the country and take part. This means exhibiting companies as well as visitors can do their business in an environment that is clearly less affected by Covid-19.”
As the biggest international trade fairs for their industries, wire® and Tube have global appeal and require particularly long lead times. Traditionally, two thirds of all exhibiting companies travel to Düsseldorf from abroad every two years.
Trade visitors from over 80 countries meet at the Düsseldorf Fairgrounds at peak times. The new fair date of 20th – 24th June 2022 therefore provides these industries with clear planning security.
Daniel Ryfisch, project director at wire and Tube, added: "I would like to thank our exhibitors and partners for their understanding and willingness to once again make wire and Tube with us from 20th – 24th June the industry highlights they have been for more than 30 years at the Düsseldorf location."
Exhibitors at wire will present their technological highlights in exhibition halls 9 to 15, while Tube exhibitors will be in halls 1 to 7a.
