Stay connected and informed

The pandemic has transformed our daily lives and how we do business. The roll out of vaccines has opened a roadmap to a recovery which is likely to be stimulated by investment in infrastructure, sustainable industry, and the communications networks that have kept us connected.

Now is the time to explore if the wire and cable industry is prepared for the opportunities emerging from the global recovery and how the industry is focused on innovation and sustainability.  

CRU's Wire & Cable 2021 Virtual Conference will give leaders of the wire and cable sector the chance to discuss how  the role that this industry will play in bringing the world back from this crisis. 

This virtual event will offer you access to high-quality information and the chance to join lively discussions in a highly immersive and interactive space. This opportunity to connect with your peers and, most importantly, build your post-Covid business.

New features for 2021 include:

     Designed to replicate the 'by chance' meetings which take place around the hotel and at social occasions during the live conference we will introduce our Speed networking sessions
     Meet the Speakers feature, giving you direct video conference to speakers to discuss the issues raised in their presentations to encourage deeper discussions on the issues affecting the industry

CRU’s Wire & Cable conference series has been established as the premier meeting place for the world’s cablemakers and the insulated wire and cable supply chain for the past 15 years.

The Virtual Conference, will give you the chance to meet your peers, share market insights and build strategies for your business to be a part of the post-Covid recovery, and also offers the ideal opportunity to meet with a wide range of CRU experts from across the wire, fibre, copper and aluminium teams.

Focused sessions offer more in-depth discussion on insulated, winding and other specialty wire and cable products produced from copper, aluminium and optical fibre, coatings and the other materials; as well as the inputs that impact the bottom line for wire and cable producers, consumers and their supply chain. 

The three-day format offers a most cost-effective way to get up-to-speed with important market developments and meet with the right people in a short period of time.
