Registration numbers speak for themselves: Positive response to trade fairs Metallurgy-Litmash, Tube Russia and Aluminium/Non-Ferrous

The economic  conditions for the trade fairs Metallurgy-Litmash, Tube Russia and Aluminium/Non Ferrous to be held from 28 to 31 May 2012 in Moscow are improving: Despite an extremely difficult economic environment over the past few years, the industry is now looking to  the future with a fair amount of optimism thanks to the constantly improving investment climate in Russia. Wellknown exhibitors such as TMK Russia, OMK Russia,  Danieli, Elmaksan, Heinrich-Wagner-Sinto, Laempe Mössner, Künkel Wagner, Paul Wurth, Oskar Frech, Siemens VAI, Foseco and the SMS-Group have already secured their place at the Expocentre Fairgrounds in Moscow. In 2011 265 exhibitors from 24 countries showcased their exhibits.

According to Germany Trade and Invest (gtai) Russia’s economy has seen better growth in 2011 than in the previous year after some initial problems. Without excessive sovereign debt and thanks to abundant revenue from raw materials Moscow looks to the future with optimism. For the coming years experts expect growth rates to achieve to the tune of 4%. Investment activities are up, the construction sector is picking up speed again and consumption remains a strong pillar of this upswing.

The trade fair duo is one of the most important trading and contact platforms in Russia and for the neighbouring states. The organisers are aware of the optimism prevailing in the industry and can now already see a positive trend in exhibitor registrations. Add to this, that Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, Messe Düsseldorf Moscow OOO and its Russian partner Metal-Expo have succeeded in winning over official participations from Germany, Italy, Austria and China. The trade fair is supported by the leading international industry associations AMAFOND  –  Italian Association for Foundry Machines and Products,  ITA  – International Tube Association,   VDMA  –  German Engineering Association, EUnited  Metallurgy  –  The European Metallurgical Equipment Association, CEMAFON  –  The  European Foundry Equipment Suppliers Association  and CECOF  –  The  European Committee of Industrial Furnace and Heating Equipment Associations  as well as by the important partner MC-CCPIT  – Metallurgical Council of China Council for the Promotion of International Trade.

There is also one other trade fair highlight worth mentioning in this context: From 26 to 30 March 2012 the two wire and Tube trade fairs serving the wire, cable and tube processing industries will be held jointly for the 13th time now at the  Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre. 2010 saw 69,200 trade visitors from over 100 countries travel to Düsseldorf to gather information from a total of 2,400 companies about the latest technologies and applications. This is an international benchmark that is hard to beat.
