The recent staging of wire China 2014, the 6th All China International Wire and Cable Industry Trade Fair, and Tube China 2014, the 6th All China International Tube and Pipe Trade Fair, in Shanghai closed to record results: a total of 1,461 exhibitors presented the latest technology, machinery and products from the wire, cable and tube processing industries to more than 38,000 visitors.
In addition to the strong Chinese participation and many international exhibitors, wire and Tube China 2014 featured country group exhibits from Austria, France, Germany, Italy and the U.S. Exhibitors reported many international visitors who were not only interested in the products, but also prepared to buy.
The organizers Messe Düsseldorf, Messe Düsseldorf China and their local partners - Metallurgical Council of China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (MC-CCPIT) and the Shanghai Electric Cable Research Institute (SECRI) - were delighted with the positive feedback of the participants.
“Messe Düsseldorf, Messe Düsseldorf China and their local partners MC-CCPIT and SECRI are very satisfied with the outcome of the trade fair duo,” said Werner M. Dornscheidt, CEO of Messe Düsseldorf.
He added, “With the rapid growth of wire & Tube China, we managed to not only exceed the visitor and exhibitor results from 2012 but to also strengthen our position as Asia’s leading wire, cable and tube trade fairs.”
Heinz Rockenhaeuser, president, International Wire and Cable Exhibitor’s Association (IWCEA), said of the show: “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.”
The next wire and Tube China will be held Sept. 26-29 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC).
Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
