The event witnessed a footfall of 6,000 trade visitors from 60 countries primarily from Australia, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Vietnam, and Singapore.
Various machines and equipment for wire making, processing and wire finishing, accessories, measuring, control, and test engineering as well as new and further developed special wires and cables were on display. The visitors to the trade fairs were producers, upstream suppliers and buyers from the wire, cable, automotive, construction, energy, and electrical industries.
For the first time, companies from the foundry and metallurgical sectors of industry showcased their technologies concurrently at GIFA Southeast Asia and METEC Southeast Asia – thereby completing the value chain of the manufacturing, metal-working and finishing industry. The background to extending the industrial trade fairs in Asia was the rising demand for machinery, equipment, and products for Southeast Asia’s growing infrastructure.
Since 1997, the key players in the wire and cable sectors have presented themselves at wire and Tube SEA in Asia every two years. The specialist trade fair has set the bar as the region’s leading trade-focused platform for international exhibitors to showcase their latest wire and cable processing equipment and machinery, products and solutions to key local and global manufacturers, suppliers, and service providers for the wire, cable, spring-making and fastener industries.
Held alongside the synergistic Tube Southeast Asia, both trade events brought together around 400 exhibitors from over 30 countries, providing an attractive focal point and springboard for both international companies and local businesses wanting to make their foray into Asia’s markets. The next edition of the event is expected to be hosted in Bangkok from 20 to 22 September 2023.
