The third concurrent staging of wire South America, International Wire & Cable Trade Fair, and TUBOTECH, International Trade Fair for Tubes & Pipes, Valves, Pumps, Fittings and Components, will take place from October 3 – 5, 2017 in the São Paulo Expo Exhibition & Convention Center in Brazil.

Economic experts predict that the Brazilian economy will recover in 2017. Although it is still uncertain how dynamic this recovery will be, it is cause for cautious optimism. Following the pattern of the previous events, the trade fair duo is expected to attract around 500 exhibitors from 24 countries on about 344,500 square feet of gross exhibit space and more than 11,000 trade visitors.

Organized by Messe Düsseldorf in partnership with the Brazilian company Cipa Fiera Milano Publicações e Eventos Ltda., the two trade fairs will provide an important platform for visitors from the oil and gas industries as well as from the automotive engineering, construction, metal design and mining sectors.

After the successful first staging in 2013, the third edition of wire South America will feature the latest machinery for the manufacturing, processing and finishing of wire, tools and auxiliary materials as well as materials, special wires and cables. Measurement, control and test engineering will also be part of the product range. The event is supported by IWMA (the International Wire & Machinery Association), IWCEA (the International Wire & Cable Exhibitors’ Association), WCISA (the Wire and Cable Industry Suppliers Association) and ACIMAF (the Italian Wire Machinery Manufacturers’ Association).

Since its premiere in 2001, TUBOTECH has developed into the industry’s leading trade fair on the South American continent. The products on display will include pipes and accessories, equipment and machinery for the manufacturing, processing and finishing of pipes, raw materials, used machinery, process engineering tools and accessories as well as measurement, control and test equipment. TUBOTECH 2017 has the support of ITA (the International Tube Association) and the Brazilian industry association ABITAM (Associação Brasileira da Indústria de Tubos e Accesórios de Metal).

Brazil has an extremely large domestic market and even though it is rich in resources, it has so far only had a low level of market saturation. It also has great potential for future investment in the wire, cable and pipe industries since products from those sectors are of major importance for Brazil’s industry in general, particularly in view of planned investments in the construction and automotive and renewable energies sectors.
