It’s being hosted by CRU whose series of conferences have proved a popular meeting place for the world’s cable and wire makers and their supply chains for some 14 years. A fully immersive virtual experience awaits delegates, with the opportunity to attend seminars and pose questions as well as arrange 1-2-1 meetings. The focus of the event is the wire and cable industry’s role on the road to post-Covid recovery.

Commented Mike Braddock, CEO at Cimteq: “We are excited to be joining CRU at its virtual exhibition next month. This will be a first for us and we’re currently busy preparing material to ensure that our virtual booth is interesting and informative for the attendees. As we slowly ease out of lockdown, the benefits of the smart factory are even more important. We are looking forward to welcoming show delegates from virtually everywhere, to visit us or arrange 1-2-1 meetings, to find out how we can help them on their journey.”

Topics to be explored during the show include:

– What the crisis and expected recovery mean for the wire and cable industry

– Which market segments will be the winners and losers in the ‘new normal’

– How the industry may be impacted by government stimulus models.

The extensive agenda and format include:

– C-level executive leadership panel discussions and views on recovery

– Product specific wire and cable market discussions with industry experts

– Showcases of recent innovation in wire and cable design and production.

APAC Regional Sales Manager for Cimteq, Yufei Du, will be presenting with an update on The Smart Factory, and how Industry 4.0 technologies can support acceleration from lockdown. He will be presenting alongside C-level executive leaders, including keynote speaker Srinivas Siripurapu, Executive Vice President and Chief R & D Officer, Prysmian Group.

Yufei will also be on hand with colleague Frederik Becker, European Sales Manager, in Cimteq’s virtual booth to showcase the new CableBuilder family including the new off-the-shelf, cloud-based product ‘CableBuilder Go’ and CableMES, the manufacturing execution system specifically for the wire and cable industry.
