At the recent staging of the trade fair trio WIRE & CABLE INDIA, Tube India International and Metallurgy India 2014, 388 exhibitors from 25 countries presented the latest products for the wire and cable, tube and metallurgy industry. In addition to individual exhibitors, the trade fairs also featured country group exhibits from Austria, China, Germany, Italy and North America. A total of 10,600 trade visitors came to the Bombay Convention & Exhibition Center in Mumbai to find innovations, technologies and trends in the relevant sectors.

The Indian industrial sector dependents greatly on the automotive engineering, telecommunications and construction industries. Despite a slowdown in India’s economic growth in 2014, the trade fair stands at WIRE & CABLE INDIA, Tube India International and Metallurgy India 2014 attracted a lot of interest. By being held concurrently, the three trade fairs offered visitors not only a central communication platform in India but also important synergies. Exhibitors were pleased with the high participation of visitors with decision-making authority and praised their pre-show preparations. Many exhibitors have already announced that they plan to exhibit again in 2016.

“Speaking on behalf of Messe Düsseldorf and Messe Düsseldorf India, we are very pleased that we have established an ideal industry platform for the Indian market by organizing WRE & CABLE INDIA, Tube India International and Metallurgy India 2014. As organizers of the world’s leading trade fairs wire & Tube, Gifa, Metec, Thermprocess and Newcast in Düsseldorf, Germany, we can draw on a wide-ranging expertise and are therefore confident that we will strengthen the leading roles of our trade fairs on the Indian subcontinent even further,” stated Werner M. Dornscheidt, Chairman and CEO of Messe Düsseldorf.

All three trade fairs were organized by Messe Düsseldorf and its subsidiary Messe Düsseldorf India. Support was provided by important industry partners such as the International Wire and Cable Exhibitors Association (IWCEA), the International Wire & Machinery Association (IWMA), the Italian Wire Machinery Manufacturers Association (ACIMAF), the Wire and Cable Industry Suppliers Association USA (WCISA), the International Tube Association (ITA) and the German Engineering Federation (VDMA). Several Indian industry associations such as the Steel Wire Manufacturers Association of India (SWMAI), the Institute for Steel Development & Growth (INSDAG) and the Indian Stainless Steel Development Association (ISSDA) also supported the events. Messe Essen worked together with Messe Düsseldorf India and the German Welding Society (DVS) for the organization of India Essen Welding & Cutting held at the same venue.
