Nearly 3 months before the beginning of the two trade fairs Tube is already expecting to see 1,063 exhibitors from 49 countries. This number-one trade fair in the pipe and tube industry will focus on accessories in Halls 1 and 2, while manufacturing and the pipe and tube trade can be found in Halls 2, 3, 4, 7.0 and 7.1. As before, the Chinese Pavilion will be in Hall 2.
Tube metal forming will occupy Hall 5, and Halls 6 and 7a will feature tube processing machines. Plants and machinery will be presented in Hall 7a. Halls 1 to 7.0 will also have profiles for a wide range of applications. Another line which will feature prominently at Tube is plastic tubes, at a special show called PTF (Plastic Tube Forum). This exclusive show in Hall 7.1 will focus specifically on innovative plastic tubes. Set against the background of rising requirements in energy technology and environmental engineering, it is a place where visitors can view the latest trends in pipes and tubes for gas, drinking water and heating.
From 4 to 8 April 2016 the world’s leading trade fairs wire – the International Wire and Cable Fair – and Tube – the International Tube Fair – will simultaneously present their technology highlights from their respective industries at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre.
