Metallic wire, cable, tube and pipe products are crucial to industries that are key pillars of economic development across Africa; such as mining, power supply and construction. For the first time, a conference is being held to bring together local stakeholders and international experts to discuss how to boost production and trade in these products throughout the continent.
The inaugural Africa Wire, Cable & Tube Conference, co-organised by CRU and The Southern African-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AHK), will be held on 11-13 November 2019 in Johannesburg, South Africa. wire and Tube Düsseldorf, the world’s largest trade shows in this field, are lead sponsors of this important new conference. This unique partnership is the basis for creating an event in which the international wire, cable, tube and pipe supply chain will meet and make new trade partnerships with key African stakeholders.
Nicola Coslett, CEO of CRU Events explained the rationale behind this new project “CRU is a leading authority in wire and cable markets. We are delighted to build a unique partnership with AHK and Messe Düsseldorf. This important inaugural event is being launched in response to the interest in these rapidly changing markets and offers an ideal opportunity for local industry and key decision-makers to meet with the international supply chain.”
