‘Fast and innovation driven’ describes Thailand’s economic development in a nutshell. The country continues to sharpen its profile as the business hub of the ASEAN states; with the aim of expanding existing industries such as the automotive, electronics and robotics sectors, as well as establishing new sectors of industry.
These sectors strongly rely on machinery, equipment and products from the wire and cable industries as well as from the tube industry, which is reflected by the exhibitor numbers registered at the leading regional trade fairs wire and Tube Southeast Asia – held at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC) from 18th to 20th September 2019.
Across the three days 370 exhibitors will be showcasing current machinery, equipment and services from the wire, cable and tube segments against the backdrop of Bangkok’s vibrant investment climate. Exhibitors predominantly hail from neighbouring countries such as Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia and China. There will also be exhibitors from European countries travelling to Thailand from Germany, Great Britain and Austria.
For the second time now, wire Southeast Asia will encompass a separate special show on Fastener Technology, where in the ‘Fastener Pavilion’ companies from the fastener and joining technologies industries will showcase their innovations.
In excess of 8,000 trade visitors from more than 50 countries are expected over the three days of the trade fair. One third of visitors will not come from Thailand; instead they will be travelling here from India, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Myanmar, Indonesia, Japan, Korea and Vietnam.
