18/06/2020 – wire 2020: The world focuses on Dusseldorf
Visitors from over 100 countries expected to attend „wire“ in December
For December the organiser Messe Dusseldorf expect stable numbers of visitors from Europe despite the tight situation in the global economy. So far, one third of visitors at both trade fairs came from Germany while two thirds were international visitors. This means that “wire” and “Tube” are among the most internationally attended trade fairs care of Messe Dusseldorf.
From 7 to 11 December 2020 the two international No. 1 trade fairs for the wire, cable and tube and pipe industries, „wire“ and „Tube“, will open their doors at Dusseldorf Fairgrounds. The two leading international trade fairs for these industries will now be held in compliance with strict new hygiene and social distancing rules at a perfectly prepared Dusseldorf Fairground. 2018 saw 71,500 trade visitors (69,000 in 2016) from 134 countries visit the exhibition halls on the Rhine river over five days to learn about innovations in their sectors and conclude business deals at the world’s leading trade fairs.

80% of international visitors in December are expected to hail from Europe. Although strong producer and visitor countries such as Italy, France and Spain are seriously impacted by the consequences of the Corona crisis, these are the European countries – alongside the Netherlands, Spain, Poland, Russia, Great Britain and Turkey – where most European trade visitors will come from to visit the two trade fairs.
If the EU and national stimulus packages take effect in the European countries, then an economic recovery and increase in investment can be expected by the end of the year.
Visitors to “wire” come from the wire and cable industries, the iron, steel and NF-metal industries, from automotive and construction, the chemical industry, trade and the services sector. At “wire” 2020 they will be on the look-out for innovations, trends, new business partners and suppliers or seeking to deepen existing contacts. Visitors’ main interests focus on machinery and equipment for wire manufacturing and finishing, as well as process technology tools, finished products, auxiliary materials, forming technology and fasteners and springs as well as wire mesh welding machinery.
