Wire Düsseldorf 2020

December 7-11

The world's leading international trade fairs for the wire, cable, tube and pipe industry, wire and Tube, will take place from 7 to 11 December 2020  at  Düsseldorf Fairgrounds.

This is Messe Düsseldorf's timely response to the postponement of the industry highlights announced at the end of February. It was agreed in consultation with all partners involved in order to counteract the increasingly dynamic developments regarding the possible spread of the coronvirus.

“It is very important for us to inform you of this new date as soon as possible in order to ensure planning security for the entire industry and its partners,” says Wolfram N. Diener, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, and adds: “Our customers and partners can trust us to act calmly and responsibly even in difficult situations.”

Existing contracts with Messe Düsseldorf remain valid for the new date, visitor tickets already purchased remain valid as well. 2,600 exhibitors in 15 halls are expected to present their latest machinery and equipment for wire and tube production, processing and finishing, end products, products and services. 

The Düsseldorf hotel industry is also sending out an important signal through its umbrella organisation DEHOGA (Trade Association for the Hospitality Industry): “We appeal to our members and the entire industry to be flexible when it comes to rebooking by exhibitors and visitors. The Düsseldorf trade fairs such as wire and Tube play an enormously important role for the city, the hotel industry and the catering trade. It would be counterproductive not to show goodwill in this situation,” as both DEHOGA-Representatives Giuseppe Saitta (Chairman Düsseldorf/District Group Rhein-Kreis Neuss) and Rolf D. Steinert (Düsseldorf/Rhein-Kreis Neuss Hotels and Tourism Group) emphasize.

The next concurrent staging of wire Düsseldorf, International Wire and Cable Trade Fair, and Tube Düsseldorf, International Tube and Pipe Trade Fair, will take place from December 7 - 11, 2020 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany. Over 2,500 exhibitors will showcase the most up-to-date technologies from the wire, cable, tube and pipe processing industries.

At wire 2020, an expected 1,300 exhibitors from 50 countries will present their latest innovations in the following categories: wire manufacturing and finishing machinery, process technology tools and auxiliary process technology materials as well as materials, special wires and cables, measuring and control technology and test engineering.

wire 2020 will again feature the North American Pavilion, organized by Messe Düsseldorf North America (MDNA) together with the Wire and Cable Industry Suppliers Association (WCISA) of Akron, Ohio as the sponsor (www.wcisaonline.org).
