The economic conditions for the trade fairs Metallurgy-Litmash 2012 (International Trade Fair for Metallurgy, Machinery, Plant Technology and Products), Tube Russia 2012 (The International Tube and Pipe Trade Fair in Russia) and Aluminium/Non-Ferrous 2012 (International Trade Fair for Aluminum and Non-Ferrous Metals, Materials, Technologies and Products) are improving: Despite an extremely difficult economic environment over the past few years, the industry is now optimistic about the future due to the constantly improving investment climate in Russia. Renowned companies such as TMK Russia, OMK Russia, Danieli, Elmaksan, Heinrich-Wagner-Sinto, Laempe Mössner and Künkel Wagner as well as Paul Wurth, Oskar Frech, Siemens VAI, Foseco and the SMS-Group have already signed up as exhibitors. There will also be official country participations from Germany, Italy, Austria and China. The trade fairs will be held concurrently from May 28 - 31, 2012 at the ZAO Expocentr in Moscow.

This trade fair trio is one of the most important business platforms for the metallurgy industry in Russia and its neighbouring states. The organizers Messe Düsseldorf, Messe Düsseldorf Moscow OOO and its Russian partner Metal-Expo, see the positive exhibitor registrations as a reflection of the optimism in this sector.

According to Germany Trade and Invest (gtai), Russia’s economy has seen better growth in 2011 than in the previous year after some initial problems. Due to abundant revenue from raw materials and no excessive sovereign debt, the future looks positive. For the coming years, experts anticipate growth rates of around 4%. Investment activities are increasing, the construction sector is improving and consumption remains a strong source of this growth.
