Prominent industry leaders will be gathered to discussed the latest technologies – from new materials, process control, pipe production and processing technology, to the plant energy efficiency solutions. Seize this opportunity and stay up to date with the ‘global re-industrial revolution’ trend. Highly praised by former exhibitors, the booth reservations areselling out quickly Among the 1,700+ exhibitors participating in the 2018 edition are many loyal supporters who have been growing with wire & Tube China for over a decade. Some of the main reasons cited by the supporters for their patronization are: "highly effective", "high quality buyers", "intensive orders from the exhibition". "The biennial wire & Tube China gathers high-quality buyers from China and many neighboring countries," said Dr. Christoph Müller-Mederer, CFO of Wafios, Germany, at the 2016 exhibition, “Some clients have already placed orders during the event. This exhibition has become an important step for Wafios to tap the Asian market potential, and it is believed that the industry will get better with the advancement of industry 4.0.” Mr. Xia Jianjie, Director of Sheet Metal Equipment Division, Han's Laser Technology Industry Group, also mentioned: "Through this exhibition, we met a lot of professional buyers looking for precision pipe cutting technology, which helps Han's Laser to increase their market share. I am very satisfied with the outcome of attending this exhibition. We look forward to meeting more friends and upstream & downstream players of the pipe processing industry.” It is by virtue of the ‘visible and tangible’ effect, as well as word of mouth among exhibiting brands that the organizers received many renewal request once the booth reservations for the 2018 edition opened up.
