The event is now well established as the premier meeting place for senior executives to plan their strategies for the Wire and Cable markets.

As with previous years, the event will open with shared plenary sessions and then split into streams that focus on the separate Energy cable and Communication cable issues. In this way, we bring together the entire supply chain from across global wire and cable industry.

These sessions will explore these next generation applications of wire and cable and how it will impact producers, traders and distributors around the world. Discussions will also cover the economic outlook in the developing and developed world, addressing the many challenges and opportunities facing the industry.

The Bavarian capital is Germany’s undisputed technology centre and boasts one of the world’s largest IT, communication and automotive industry hubs. Germany has emerged as a world renewable energy leader, which makes the country the perfect place to understand that future of wire and cable consumption in power generation.
