wire® returns 16 May 2022

After four years, the wire industry will finally meet again live and on-site at the Düsseldorf exhibition centre from 20th – 24th June 2022 – presenting the latest innovations in wire, cable and tube.

Exhibitors at Tube will be in halls 1 to 7a, while wire® exhibitors will present their technological highlights in exhibition halls 9 to 15. From machinery and equipment for wire manufacturing, wire processing and finishing, spring and fastener technologies and their finished products, auxiliary materials and process technology tools through to glass fibre, all aspects of the wire industry will be on show.

“Anticipation is high and the sectors are confident they will be able to experience five days packed with technology innovations in Düsseldorf; talk to experts from all over the world; and also enjoy the social part of a trade fair outside show hours again,” commented organisers.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic is subsiding, and entry and exit regulations have been relaxed internationally, it has become possible for both exhibitors and trade visitors from around the world to travel to Düsseldorf for trade fair events. Hygienic conditions are ensured across the entire fairgrounds and inside the halls, with a multitude of sanitiser dispensers and a constant circulation of air. Wearing face masks and keeping a 1.5m distance during conversations is also recommended.

1,000 companies from 47 countries have already registered for wire® 2022, occupying 53,210m2 of net exhibition space.

For the first time, finished products from the traditional segments of fastener and spring making technology will also be exhibited. This means such finished products as technical springs, screws, cable strands, eyelets, etc, will also exhibit at wire® 2022.

Fastener companies will be mainly housed in hall 13 including Bass GmbH, Carlo Salvi SpA, CEIA SpA, Dimac Srl, ENKOTEC A.S, Evirt Italia Srl, Hatebur Umformmaschinen AG, Manassero & C Srl, Mayes & Warwick, Nakashimada Engineering Works Ltd, National Machinery LLC, SACMA Group, Talleres Saspi S.A, Tecno Impianti Srl, Weighpack International, as well as Wrentham Tool Group.

Visitors to the show are expected from the wire and cable industries, the iron, steel and NF metal industries, as well as the automotive, construction, chemical, trade and services industries. 2022 will see the traditionally strong attendance of exhibitors from Italy, Turkey, Spain, Belgium, France, Austria, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Great Britain, Sweden, Poland and Germany. As regards to overseas exhibitors, registrations have been seen from the USA, Canada, South Korea, Taiwan, India, Japan and China.

Traditionally, wire® and Tube are among the most international trade fairs in Messe Düsseldorf’s portfolio. The last show, in 2018, saw 71,500 trade visitors (69,000 in 2016) from 134 countries visit the exhibition halls on the Rhine river, over five days, to learn about innovations in their sectors and conclude business deals. One third of visitors at both trade fairs came from Germany while two thirds were international visitors. This means that wire® and Tube are among the most internationally attended trade fairs for Messe Düsseldorf.

From end products in fasteners and springs; an ecoMetals campaign with guided tours to exhibitors such as AMPCO METAL Deutschland GmbH, ArcelorMittal Commercial Sections S.A, Georgsmarienhütte GmbH, Klöckner & Co SE and SMS group GmbH, in whose production halls sustainability, energy efficiency and resource conservation have a strong emphasis; to expert meetings with keynote speeches by key players in the industries – wire® 2022 will be the worldwide ‘place to be’ for the wire, cable, tube and pipe industries. Exhibitors will present not only new machines and plants but also increasingly sustainable solutions for eMobility, digitalisation and Industry 4.0.
