From 9 to 11 May, Wire Association International (WAI) will be organising the ‘Interwire’ trade fair. Through WIRE we are supporting the entry into the American market of European companies in particular. In this edition we have compiled a compact summary of information on exhibitors for readers and visitors in advance of the fair. Infrastructure and investment programmes for climate change on both sides of the Atlantic are attracting new companies and strengthening the interest of businesses already active in the area. This trend is clearly reflected both in the products on show at the exhibition and in the session presentations. Over 300 companies will be presenting their products and services in Atlanta, Georgia, including many European businesses from the spring, wire and cable machine industry.
