Both exhibitors and visitors were very satisfied with their participation and gave wire & Tube China positive ratings. Dr.-lng. Christoph Müller-Mederer, CFO from Wafios AG, said: “The biennial wire &Tube China brings together high-quality buyers from China and many surrounding countries, some of whom have already signed on-site letters of intent to purchase. This show has clearly become an important channel for Wafios to expand into the Asian market. I believe that with the advancement of Industry 4.0, the industry as a whole will become better and better.”

Zhao Jianyi, General Manager from Shanghai Kingstone Cable & Equipment Co., Ltd., agreed: “We have witnessed the 12 years' development of this event. With this platform we have continually optimized our company image and have succeeded in many business opportunities.”

“During the exhibition, we have met many professional buyers looking for precision pipe cutting technologies, helping Han*S Laser to obtain bigger market shares. I am satisfied with the exhibition and it brings us good results,” remarked Xia Jianjie, Head of Sheet Metal Division of Han*S Laser Technology Industry Group Co.

The exhibition was also very rewarding for the buyers. Ander Garcia-Arino, Purchase Coordinator of VINCO from Spain, stated: “I have attended wire &Tube China for many years. This is an excellent opportunity for us to secure new suppliers and better cooperation. During the 4-day show, I met with new suppliers from Europe and Mexico, which gives us the advantages for our global reach.” Alex Garcia, President of US ALYTA International Corporation, noted: “We are mainly involved in the production of carbon steel and stainless steel pipes. The exhibition is condensed and I have successfully met with two Chinese suppliers. I am satisfied with the results.”

According to domestic visitor Mr. Tian from BSH Electrical Appliances (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd.: “As Asia’s largest professional wire and tube exhibition, wire & Tube China gives the visitors the opportunity to understand the development trends and cutting-edge products and technologies of the industry. We focus on the wire and fastener industries, especially on spring machinery and wire bending machines. During the exhibition, we were able to meet with many suppliers for relevant products – a really productive experience.”

With the topic “Innovation, Optimization and Vitality", the 2016 China Wire & Cable Industry Conference focused on exploring the new, optimized development path for China’s manufacturing industry. During the forum, the 13th Five Year industrial development strategy was presented.

The debut of the Tube & Pipe Industry Development Seminar 2016 was well received. The lectures addressed topics for companies regarding transforming and updating product structures to adapt to market demands, meeting higher customer requirements and developing cross-border e-commerce of steel pipes in China.

Dietger Schrörs, Executive Secretary of ITA, a supporting organization of the event, pointed out: “Although the global tube and pipe market is facing downward pressure, we and our member units are actively looking for ways to stay competitive in the existing market and face new challenges. I believe that in the next 2 years, the pipe industry will present new opportunities.”
