Leading event bringing together the international metallic wire and cable community

Igniting Innovation, Powering the Future

We are delighted to announce details of CRU Wire and Cable 2024. The event will focus on the pivotal role of the wire and cable manufacturers in shaping the future of power generation, renewable energy, electrification, and the evolution of power grids.

Energy and electrification are two key topics which will shape the world over the coming decades. Wires and cables lay at the centre of this topic, transporting energy to booming demand applications while remaining exposed to geopolitical challenges, supply chain uncertainty and an ever-changing labour market. The wire and cable industry has the ability to weather economic challenges and innovate to continue its role as the backbone of the global energy transformation.

The agenda will explore onshore and offshore wind farms, solar farms, subsea and land interconnections, distribution networks, and the transformative role of the wire and cable industry. As the world strives for a net-zero future, our industry is at the forefront of driving and delivering technological  change. For the first time, there will be a dedicated day to wire and cable production innovation, advanced production materials, installation techniques, and the revolutionary impact of winding wire and modular cable architecture. Explore the agenda

The implementation of these urgent changes is taking place against a challenging political, regulatory, and inflationary environment, coupled with logistical, labour, component and supply chain shortages. Learn more about the event this year
