Global players from all over the world at the Metal Trade Fair Summit 2024 in Düsseldorf
wire and Tube set new standards
With over 2,000 exhibitors from 65 countries, wire and Tube 2024 will once again impressively assert their position as leading international trade fairs for the key industries of wire, cable, tubes, pipes and their supplier industries.
Over 100,000 square metres of the Düsseldorf Fairgrounds are occupied. Trade visitors from all over the world are expected. With around two thirds of the exhibitors, wire and Tube are among the trade fairs with the highest internationality in Messe Düsseldorf's portfolio. They come mainly from the strong European production countries, from the USA, Central and South America, Asia and the African continent.
"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," says a delighted Daniel Ryfisch, Director wire/Tube & Flow Technologies at Messe Düsseldorf.
In addition to the classic themes such as machinery and equipment for wire, cable and tube production, processing and end products, wire and Tube place a strong focus on topics such as stainless steel, hydrogen, plastic tubes, cutting and slitting technologies and e-mobility. In addition, the topics of fastening and joining technologies, spring manufacturing technology and glass fibre technologies continue to move to the fore.
The main industries here are the chemical, oil and gas sectors, the automotive industry, the construction sector and the entire telecommunications sector.
wire 2024 occupies exhibition halls 9 to 17: wire, cable, wire products and technologies are scheduled in halls 9 to 12 and hall 15. Meet China`s Expertise can be found in Hall 14. Hall 16 will become a special hall for fastening and fixing technologies and for spring making technology, including their end products such as screws, grooves, eyelets and technical springs. This creates an exclusive, separate technology area here. The large area for heavy, space-consuming mesh welding machines will be located in the central Hall 17.
Tube 2024 occupies exhibition halls 1 to 7a: tube accessories, tube manufacturing and the tube trade are located in halls 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7a. A new feature is the special area for plastic tubes in Hall 1, which provides the space for plastic tubes that they currently occupy with increasing tendency in the manufacturing and processing industries.
Forming and bending technology is to be found in Halls 5 and 6, and pipe processing technology in Halls 6 and 7a. Machinery and equipment will follow in Hall 7a. Hall 7 is once again reserved for Chinese pipe producers and pipe processors with Meet China's expertise.
Numerous specialist forums, congresses and tours such as the international meeting of experts from the sectors, a hydrogen and e-mobility 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.
