Anticipation is high and the sectors are confident they will be able to experience five days packed with technology innovations in Düsseldorf, talk to experts from all over the world and also enjoy the social part of a trade fair outside show hours again. Especially these days, promoting communication and exchange is of prime importance.

Since the pandemic is subsiding in summer and entry and exit regulations have been relaxed internationally, it becomes possible for both exhibitors and trade visitors from around the world to travel to Düsseldorf for trade fair events. Hygienic conditions are ensured across the entire Fairgrounds and inside the halls by a multitude of sanitizer dispensers and a constant circulation of air; nevertheless, wearing face masks and keeping a 1.5m distance during conversations are recommended.

For over 35 years the key players of the wire, cable, tube and pipe industries have come together in Düsseldorf to showcase the latest machinery, plants, products and services, meet international customers and conclude business deals.

At this stage 1,000 companies from 47 countries have already registered for wire 2022. They occupy 53,210 square metres of net exhibition space. The leading international trade fair of the cable sector presents cable manufacturing and finishing machines, process technology tools and auxiliary process technology materials as well as materials, special wires and cables. Furthermore, innovations from the areas of measuring and control technology as well as test engineering and specialist areas will be on show. For the first time now, finished products from the traditional segments of fastener and spring making technology will also be exhibited. This means such finished products as technical springs, screws, cable strands, eyelets etc. will also make their way into the ranges of “wire 2022”.

The international trade fair “wire” will occupy exhibition halls 9 to 14 with the segments of wire, cable, wire products and manufacturing technology, fastener technology and spring making technology plus finished products with Hall 13 dedicated exclusively to fastener and spring making technologies and their finished products. Following on from this hall will be the large and energy-intensive mesh-welding machines plus associated technologies in Hall 15.

Once again, 2022 will also see the traditionally strong attendance of exhibitors from Italy, Turkey, Spain, Belgium, France, Austria, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Great Britain, Sweden, Poland and Germany. As regards overseas exhibitors, registrations from the USA, Canada, South Korea, Taiwan, India, Japan and China have been received.

On over 40,000 square metres of net exhibition space the international tube and pipe trade fair “Tube” presents the complete bandwidth from tube manufacturing and finishing to pipe and tube processing and tube trading. Exhibits range from raw materials, pipes and tubes and accessories, tube manufacturing machinery and second-hand machinery to process technology tools, auxiliaries and measuring and control technology as well as test engineering. Pipelines and the area of OCTG technology as well as profiles and machinery complement the ranges. So far 735 exhibitors from 44 countries have registered. At “Tube” the strongest exhibiting countries will also be Italy, Turkey, Great Britain, the Netherlands, France, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Spain, the Czech Republic, and Germany. As regards overseas, most exhibitors come from the USA, India, South Korea, Taiwan and China.

The No. 1 trade fair for the pipe and tube industry will occupy the new Hall 1 for the first time as well as the adjacent Halls 3 and 4 with the segments tube manufacturing, accessories and tube trading. Following on from these halls will be bending and forming in Halls 5 and 6, and pipe and tube processing in Halls 6 and 7a. Hall 7a will be occupied by big plant and machinery.

Premiere for the ecoMetal trails for the trade fair duration
Sustainable, eco-friendly, energy-efficient and innovative: this is how most manufacturing companies want to “shine” in public. However, the path towards this is often long, especially in the resource-intensive technology companies of the wire, cable, tube and pipe industries. It often takes companies years to incorporate the demands made on climate-efficiency, sustainability and resource savings into their own production operations.

All the more Messe Düsseldorf will now look to its “ecoMetals” Campaign at the leading global trade fairs “wire” and “Tube”: from 20 to 24 June there will be daily guided tours offered for free to visitors. These so-called “ecoMetals-trails” will guide them to the stands of sustainably manufacturing exhibitors.

Expert meeting revolving around Green Transformation
Under the heading The Steel Industry is enforcing its Green Transformation an expert meeting will held on Monday 20 June. From 2.00 pm an approximately 4-hour programme will feature eight expert lectures in the new Hall 1, ground floor Süd/South, Room 15. Rising to the challenges of the Green Transformation experts from international companies will report exciting transformation processes from their production halls and research labs. The event is organised by the agency Stahl-Kommunikation. Since the number of visitors is limited early informal registration is recommended – sending your name, company address, telephone no. and e-mail address to hgd@stahl-kommunikation.de
