Messe Dusseldorf GmbH
The wire and cable industry's most pivotal global event
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 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.
April 15th – April 19th 2024 are the newly confirmed dates for the hosting of the leading trade fairs Wire 2024 and Tube 2024. These major international trade fairs for the manufacturing industries will be hosted as live trade shows at Messe Düsseldorf. At present, Germany does not have restrictions related to Covid-19, including national or travel ones. This is due to the country opting to remove them in April 2022 and June 2022, respectively, as a result of the improved epidemiological situation. Due to such changes, attendees will not be required to show 3G entry documents upon arrival or to adhere to safety protocols such as social distancing and mandatory face masks.

Wire arrives in Düsseldorf, 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 until 18:00 pm on the first four days. The last day ends at 16:30 pm.
We also have to talk about commuting to Messe Düsseldorf. 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.
The numbers for Wire are continuously improving with each new edition. The last edition saw more than 1400 exhibitors from 50 countries showcase, while the audience increase to over 42,000 trade visitors in total. The international exhibition is highly international, with only a third of all visitors being German nationals. The rest come predominantly from Europe, then followed by Asian and American markets. The countries with the biggest concentration of visitors include Italy, India, Spain, France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, the United States, Russia and Poland.
