Why Your Visit Is Worth It?

We don’t exaggerate when we say that tube occupies a key strategic place with access to a lot of international markets. The application of tube products and manufacturing technologies is relevant for major heavy and light industries. The trade fair guarantees you have access to a varied audience, and this is confirmed by the visitor numbers. We’ve taken the statistics from the last edition held before the pandemic. If you’re unconvinced of the opportunities here, look: 

  • 1200+ international exhibitors from 50+ countries showcased;
  • 31,000+international trade visitors made the trip;
  • 52,000+ square metres of exhibition space was used; 

As tube and wire are gearing up to come back after the pandemic, organisers have announced that over 700 exhibitors have confirmed their attendance. Those are very strong comeback numbers. 

Industry Relevance 

Part of a dynamic duo, tube and wire are open to professionals only and take centre stage at Messe Dusseldorf every two years. The very first edition was put together in 1988 to a small audience and since then the brand has gained quite the traction. Today, tube and wire are established and a brand recognised worldwide. The format has been so popular that it produced successful satellite events all over the world - Russia, India, Southeast Asia, China and Arabia. 

Visitors come because they’re treated to the full processing chain in thematic areas. There are raw materials, pipes and fittings, machinery for pipe manufacturing, process technology tools and related tools, measuring, testing and control technology, profiles and associated equipment. If you’re interested in growing your business influence, then sign yourself up for the matchmaker service. 

Currently, sustainable solutions for e-mobility, digitalisation and Industry 4.0. Start-ups make up the big topics in the world of wire, cable, tube and pipe industries. Tube reflects these changes in a dynamic setting and achieves synergy with wire as the two events have always been a package deal. Furthermore, the trade fairs run alongside METAV – a leader for metalworking technologies. 

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

Internationality is a key trait that defines Tube. Exhibitors come from all over the world with the biggest concentration being in Europe – Germany, Austria, Finland, Italy, France, Bulgaria, Spain and Switzerland. There’s also strong numbers coming from China, Hong Kong, India, South Korea, Taiwan and the United States of America. As far as who you are able to meet. Outside trade visitors directly involved in the Tube industry, you also meet decision makers from the automotive supply, chemical, energy, electrical, iron and construction industries. 

These trade visitors are mainly in high managerial positions – top-level managers make up 54% of all visitors. Most have decisive purchasing power and are more than interested in placing direct orders. Visitors attend in order to survey new products and spot trends, get in touch with already existing suppliers, and identify new suppliers and potential business partners!
