wire and Tube in Düsseldorf are the two unmissable events to attend for professionals working in the wire, cable, spring, tube and pipe industries.
The best way to know what to expect from the next editions, which will be held at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre from 16 to 20 April 2018, is to ask Friedrich-Georg Kehrer, Global Portfolio Director Metals and Flow Technologies of Messe Düsseldorf.
What’s new at the world’s leading trade fairs for wire, cables and tubes in 2018?
As before, the two trade fairs will occupy 16 exhibition halls, mapping the entire spectrum of wire manufacturing and finishing, cable technologies, tube manufacturing and processing, etc. The hall layout will partly change. The southern section of the exhibition centre will be extended towards the Rhine, comprising the future Hall 1 and thus a new, light-flooded southern entrance area as the dominant feature, looking towards the city centre. This is why wire 2018 will be held in Halls 9 to 16 and parts of the temporary Hall 18, while Tube will cover Halls 3 to 7.0 and Halls 16, 17 and also parts of the temporary Hall 18. It means that Hall 16 will form a transitional area and interface between wire 2018 and Tube 2018. In addition to the southern, eastern and northern entrances, there will be a temporary entrance in Hall 17. The shuttle buses will be serving all four entrances.
What will be the main emphasis in the various halls?
Halls 9 to 14 and part of Hall 16 will focus on wire and cable machines, wire and cable production and trade and glass fibre technologies. Hall 13 will put the emphasis on mesh welding machines and spring making. Hall 15 will feature connection and fastening technologies, and the adjacent Hall 16 will have a section entitled “Meet China’s Expertise”.
This has proved its worth in the past and has again been requested by our Chinese exhibitors who want to present their innovative products in a compact and manageable area, within one hall.
Tube manufacturing, profiles and tube trade will feature in Halls 3, 4, 7 and 16. Tube metal forming will be presented in Hall 5, and tube processing machines in Halls 6 and 7a. Plants and machinery will be showcased in Hall 7a, whereas Halls 16 and 17 will be about tube accessories. Profiles will be presented in Halls 3 to 7a and Halls 16 and 17. China’s Tube exhibitors will occupy Hall 16 together with their wire colleagues from the same country, inviting visitors to “Meet China’s Expertise”. But although the two Chinese groups will share the same hall, they will occupy different sections within it.
