Drawing to a Successful Close: Some 10,850 National and International Trade Visitors travelled to Moscow



The positive development of wire Russia, Metallurgy-Litmash, Tube Russia, Aluminium/ Non-Ferrous as well as RUSSIA ESSEN WELDING & CUTTING has confirmed the importance of these trade fairs in the Russian Federation

25 to 28 June 2013 saw wire Russia – International Wire and Cable Trade Fair in Russia – kick off with 250 exhibitors from 26 countries at the Expocentre in Moscow. Held concurrently at the exhibition centre were both the trade fair triple Metallurgy-Litmash, Tube Russia and Aluminium/ Non-Ferrous, which brought 330 exhibitors from 30 countries to Moscow, and RUSSIA ESSEN WELDING & CUTTING.

In Russia the interest taken in an international specialist trade fair for the wire, cable and wire-processing industries as well as for the metallurgy, foundry and tube-processing industries has increased even further. This was also impressively confirmed by the four trade fair days of wire Russia and Metallurgy-Litmash, Tube Russia and Aluminium/ Non-Ferrous. A total of 10,850 trade visitors hailing from all parts of the Russian Federation came to Moscow to visit exhibitors at their trade fair stands and obtain and exchange information on the latest products and pioneering trends.

The trade fairs proved an excellent opportunity for exhibitors to present the products hitherto not on display in Russia to a broad Russian expert audience, to deepen customer relations and to develop new contacts and business.

Not only the leading international market leaders were represented in the exhibition halls on the banks of the river Moskva – some countries such as the USA, Italy, Austria, France and China also participated with national pavilions again. As is traditionally the case, the exhibitors from Germany participated as part of the official joint company stand arranged by the German Ministry of Economics and by AUMA (Association of the German Trade Fair Industry).
The organisers of wire Russia and of Metallurgy-Litmash, Tube Russia and Aluminium/ Non-Ferrous, Messe Düsseldorf GmbH and its subsidiary Messe Düsseldorf Moskau, in turn enjoyed the full support of its partners and co-organisers VNIIKP (All Russian Cable Scientific Research and Development Institute) and Metal Expo.
