May 9th – May 13th 2022 are the new confirmed dates for when wire is going to be held next alongside Tube. These major international trade fairs for the manufacturing industries have chosen full cancellation and working on safer concepts for their next scheduled editions. Attendees can expect thorough COVID-19 health and safety protocols at Messe Dusseldorf.


Tightly specializing around the finer engineering points and manufacturing of wire products and technologies, Wire manages to establish itself as a market leader in Europe. The international trade fair debuted in 1986 and has achieved many mile markers to become the successful powerhouse that it is today. The brand has managed to spread to satellite events in China, Southeast Asia, India, South America and Russia.

Visiting Wire means seeing the latest trends in wire and cable up close and personal thanks to the in-depth product portfolio. Exhibitors display cable materials, auxiliary materials, control units, wire materials, processing machines, measuring instruments, controllers, industrial tools, manufacturing machines and end products.

You are able to meet many of the professionals in the field of wiring and create beneficial connections with the renowned experts. The trade fair continues to grow as the next edition is now said to expand its focus by adding more related products to its portfolio like springs.


Wire arrives in Dusseldorf, Germany every two years during the first quarter and shares one space with Tube – the trade fair dedicated to tube and pipe technology. Both events last for a total of five days and are held between late March and early April. Messe Düsseldorf serves as both the venue and the organiser, while wire receives support from a number of organisations from Europe and the US: ACIMAF, IWCEA, IWMA and WCISA.

Admission is given to professional visitors only and opening hours are from 09:00 am in the morning until 18:00 pm in the afternoon on the first four days. The last day ends at 16:30 pm.

We also have to talk commuting to Messe Dusseldorf. From the city centre, you can take a bus (722) and the tram (lines U78 and U79). There’s also the convenient shuttle bus service that connects you from the airport to the exhibition grounds.
