Student Day at Tube 2018

It’s the world’s biggest and most important trade fair for the tube and tube processing industry. Tube 2018 kicks off at the Düsseldorf exhibition grounds on April 16, 2018, and as the website says, anyone who has made a mark on the industry, or intends to, will be there.

With this in mind, the International Tube Association has decided to specifically address the entrepreneurs, experts and innovators of tomorrow and to get them on the same stage with the employers and enablers of today. This year for the first time, the ITA have issued an invitation to machining and forming technology students and faculty members from around the country.

The students are invited to attend the exhibition on April 20, 2018, for a day, beginning at 10 a.m., which will include a guided tour of the halls and a chance to meet some of the exhibitors.

We would like to encourage exhibiting companies to join with us in giving the students some insight into promising developments in the industry. Company owners, executives and engineers can come together with the young people who have the potential to be the next movers and shakers in the sector.

The students profit from the experience and knowledge of well-established names; the hosts have the opportunity to collaborate on research that could point the way to the next breakthrough in the sector. Ideas find resources, infrastructure meets initiative. This is truly networking with the future.

Just send us the name and address of your company, booth number, the name of a contact person and a brief description of what your company makes or the services it provides. Ideally, a representative from your personnel department should be present on the day. Send the details to and we will be happy to incorporate you into our tour and introduce you to our visitors.
