Statements from Associations:

Dr. Ferruccio Bellina, President, ACIMAF: “This year the overall attendance was quite good and I think the participation of visitors was good. The exhibition is growing in terms of the exhibitors and is also more attractive for the visitors. The participation of Chinese companies is very strong. And competition is growing greatly.”

Mr. Steve Rika, Chairman, International Wire & Machinery Association (IWMA). “The general feedback could be very positive and this is the information we will give our membership - how successful people find the show. We hope we can increase the number of members attending the next show. Compared with the event two years ago, this year there seems to be a lot more attendance and new visitors.”

Mr. Dipl.-Ing. Peter Byroslawsky, Executive Secretary, International Tube Association (ITA): “ITA is happy to participate for the 6th time in Tube China and it has always supported the tube industry in China. Tube China has established its position not only in China but in the world as a meeting place for tube specialists, pipe makers, machinery and equipment suppliers as well as problem solvers. We were very pleased to enjoy the increase of visitors and exhibitors. Many of them here visited our booth. We look forwards to future shows and especially to Tube India which will take place in four weeks time.”

Rahul Sachdev, President, Wire & Cable Industry Suppliers Association (WCISA): “wire China is an important trade show for us. The visitors come here with specific projects. The event is becoming more international and we had attendees from Asia, India and Indonesia at our booth. The North American Pavilion continues to be improved and the overall infrastructure has also been updated.”

Dr. Kurt Eder, President, VOEDKM/AWCMA: “wire China was distinctively better than two years ago. We registered strong increase in international visitor participation, including attendees from Saudi Arabia and Iran. The quality of the visitors was also better. Overall, the behavior of the Chinese has changed. With the improved standard of living, customers can afford to buy high quality products and consequently, the copying of Western equipment has decreased. The difference between Chinese and Western quality is understood and Chinese manufacturers realize that they need to offer their customers Western quality equipment - and this increased demand for original products was obvious at wire China 2014.”

Heinz Rockenhaeuser, President, International Wire and Cable Exhibitor’s Association (IWCEA): “wire china 2014 went very well and we had a lot of visitors especially on the first day. We are pleased with the four days of the show – many international attendees want to have meetings on Saturday. Visitor groups come to this event not just to see and order products but also to decide about exhibiting in two years from now.”

Arnd Kulaczewski, President/CEO, Niehoff Gruppe: “The trade fair’s status gained in importance. All globally active wire and cable manufacturers have to be at wire China. It is not just about having a presence here but about establishing production capacity in China. wire China 2014 had a positive international response – in addition to the Chinese participants there were visitors from Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Brazil, India, Iran, Iraq, Russia, Vietnam and the U.S.”
