Premiere at FABTECH 2017 in Chicago: Tube Producers' and Suppliers' Pavilion

FABTECH will be opening its doors in Chicago from 6 to 9 November 2017. This industry highlight in the United States is held in Chicago every two years, mapping the entire spectrum of metalworking and processing. For the first time, in 2017, it will also feature an expanded pavilion showcasing tubes, tube end products and the tube trade.

All these areas will be presented in a new segment – the Tube Producers’ and Suppliers’ Pavilion, organised and implemented by Messe Düsseldorf. The Düsseldorf-based trade fair company will therefore be the official representative and point of contact for any potential exhibitors from outside the States.

The Tube Producers’ and Suppliers’ Pavilion is Messe Düsseldorf’s answer to rising demand from the tube industry and the tube trade for a separate segment covering tubes, tube end products and the tube trade at FABTECH. The segment will also be open to pre-processing centres, modern warehousing and service providers with one-stop shopping solutions. The pavilion thus targets international companies outside the United States wanting to export their tube products to the US and expand their tube trade there.

FABTECH 2017 in Chicago will feature around 1,700 exhibitors at the McCormick Place convention centre. The four-day trade fair on innovative technology in welding, cutting, machine tools, manufacturing facilities, presses, tube end products, the tube trade, cutting and clamping tools, welding equipment, welding techniques and punching tools is expected to attract around 45,000 trade visitors from the entire world.

Companies wanting to exhibit at the Tube Producers’ and Suppliers’ Pavilion are requested to seek direct contact with Gunnar Holm Ahrens, Messe Düsseldorf, Tel.: +49 (0) 211 45 60 7725,
