Despite the unfavorable economic climate in Russia, the recent staging of wire Russia 2015 - The International Wire and Cable Trade Fair in Russia - in Moscow featured about 200 exhibitors from 25 nations, presenting their product and service innovations to approximately 2,500 visitors from the wire, cable and wire-processing industries. This continued high number of both national and international exhibitors underscores the importance of wire Russia as an all-encompassing B2B industry platform for the Russian Federation.

The leading Russian trade fair for wire industry was jointly organized by Messe Düsseldorf and Messe Düsseldorf Moskau as well as their partner VNIIKP JSC (All Russian Cable Research and Development Institute). Messe Düsseldorf is renowned as the organizer of wire Düsseldorf, the No. 1 international event worldwide for the wire sector.

Werner M. Dornscheidt, President & CEO of Messe Düsseldorf, assesses market opportunities with cautious optimism regardless of the tense political and economic situation: “Although the current situation is anything but easy I am convinced the outlook for the wire and cable industries on the Russian market is positive in the long run. We have already overcome many global economic challenges. This has shown us that those standing their ground on the market even in difficult times are among the winners when business picks up again. The fact that visiting trade fairs abroad has become more difficult for Russian experts benefits local events. We are satisfied with the number of visitors.”

Exhibitors at wire Russia 2015 included market leaders, small specialists, long-time participants as well as first-time exhibitors. Particularly well represented were suppliers from Germany, Italy and Austria. Germany, Austria, China and Italy were also represented in country group exhibits.

wire Russia 2015 had the support of leading international and national trade associations: IWMA (International Wire & Machinery Association), IWCEA (International Wire and Cable Exhibitors Association), VDKM e.V. (German Wire and Cable Machine Manufacturers Association), VÖDKM (Austrian Wire and Cable Machine Manufacturers Association), IWCEA France (International Wire and Cable Exhibitors Association), WCISA (Wire and Cable Industry Suppliers Association), ACIMAF (Italian Wire Machinery Manufacturers Association) and SECRI (Shanghai Electric Cable Research Institute).
