At closing, wire and Tube Southeast ASIA 2015 welcomed 7144 international trade visitors from 56 countries. Almost 33% of these visitors came from outside Thailand, from countries such as Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Indonesia, Myanmar and Pakistan as well as visiting delegations from China, Japan, Korea and Vietnam, manifesting wire and Tube Southeast ASIA 2015 as the regional platform for the wire and tube industries. The trade fairs also received visits by 73 local factories from Bangkok Steel Wire, Bangkok Cable, Kulthorn Materials & Control, Thai Wire Products, among others.

With the formation of the single-economy ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) at the end of the year headlining the region, coupled with the onset of Thailand’s Infrastructure Development Plan – which will see the Kingdom undergo a massive transformation to its overall national infrastructure from 2015 to 2022, robust and borderless trade opportunities will be evident for the wire and tube industries in the coming years. Emphasizing the opportune staging of wire and Tube Southeast ASIA 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand, Mr Gernot Ringling, Managing Director, Messe Düsseldorf Asia, shared: “The staging of the synergistic trade fairs come at a timely juncture, presenting itself as a valuable platform to foster greater understanding, and business linkages between Thailand, the region and the international community for mutual benefit.”

In line with the changing industry landscape and market demands, participating exhibitors gave a solid showing of their best in technologies, innovations and machinery to quality trade visitors – further indicating wire and Tube Southeast ASIA 2015’s standing as the optimum, single converging point where the interest of exhibitors and visitors are met. As commented by Mr Christian Schalich, Area Sales Manager for SIKORA AG: “Our main objective of participation is to showcase our latest machinery to customers from the region. At the trade fair, we were able to do so and at the same time explain the advanced technologies behind our machines while our customers test them out. Having met with more visitors than two years ago, I am pleased that we have met our objective fully and will surely be back in 2017!”

With plans for an enhanced and more improved 2017 edition of the trade fairs already in motion, Mr Ringling said: “As specialist trade exhibitions with an established history of almost two decades in Southeast Asia, driven by the world’s leading trade fairs, wire Düsseldorf and Tube Düsseldorf, we are committed to working hand in hand with our international industry partners and supporting industry associations to present yet another two world-class exhibitions in wire and Tube Southeast ASIA 2017 – one that is reflective of the upcoming economy and industry progressions.”
