A few months are left before the start of the metal trade fair summit in Düsseldorf, and the exhibition centre has received better bookings than ever before in the long 30-years-lasting history of wire and Tube Düsseldorf.
Never before have so many square metres been reserved by exhibitors. Taken together, wire and Tube already have a net floor space occupancy of 120,000 sqm, which is about 10,000 sqm more than the final figure for the two trade fairs in 2016.
The number of exhibitors who have so far registered for wire 2018 is currently 1,180, representing 50 countries. Over 65,000 sqm are occupied in Halls 9 to 18. The occupancy level for Tube in Halls 3 to 7.0, 7a and 16 to 18 is over 52,000 sqm, with 965 exhibitors from 53 countries.
Innovative technologies, new machinery and equipment as well as products and services from the wire, cable and tube industries will be presented on five days, from April 16 to 20.
2018 will have an even greater focus than previously on the potential of glass fibre technology. Glass fibre is more efficient, faster and often more reliable than conventional materials. In this way Messe Düsseldorf is responding to the increasing use of glass fibre technologies in the energy sector as well in the construction and communication industries.
