In April 2006, the leading international trade fairs wire, International Trade Fair for Wire and Cable, and Tube, International Tube and Pipe Trade Fair, will, for the tenth time, jointly present new machines, products and systems from their respective industries at the exhibition grounds in Düsseldorf. The exhibition buildings on the River Rhine will be the centre of attention for these industries.

Around 1,700 international companies are expected to participate, introducing new technology and product developments from the wire & cable and tube & pipe industries.

In 2004, the two trade fairs welcomed a total of 1,700 exhibitors from 47 countries and occupied an exhibition area of 75,300 m2. More than 61,000 visitors from five continents gathered information on new technologies for the production and processing of wire, cable and tube & pipe. 2004 thus set a new attendance record for the two trade fairs in Düsseldorf!
