About the Event

The CRU Wire & Cable Conference attracts an influential audience of senior executives from 30+countries from the world’s cable makers, as well as the insulated wire and cable supply chain. 

Wire and cable products play a crucial role in achieving the large-scale energy transition to clean energy and electrification through renewables, energy storage plans and widespread digitalisation, the 2023 agenda focused on this important topic. CRU's Aisling Hubert, Wire & Cable analyst comments:
Electrification is one of the biggest growth opportunities over the next few decades - we are seeing many of our clients devising long term strategies to focus solely on this area, and we have decided to focus the Wire & Cable conference around this topic.
The industry is no longer about just making cables, but how to create sustainable end-to-end services and solutions that plug into the megatrends along the entire electrification chain, from electric vehicles, the energy transition, grid modernization and distributed power while also catering to clients’ needs for sustainable and green products. CRU experts and invited speakers will focus on and debate the topics surrounding these issues at the CRU Wire & Cable 2023 conference.


Join CRU next year for an up-to-date view on the outlook for the metallic wire and cable industry, as we focus on energy transition and supply of critical materials.
