Reconnecting the wire and cable community

CRU’s Wire & Cable Conference brought together key executives from the world’s wire and cable supply chain to London on 25-27 July 2022. 

This strategic annual gathering provides a valuable opportunity for the industry to meet face-to-face, share a meal, join a drinks reception, and reconnect with peers in the real world once again.

The agenda explored both energy and communications network developments, across the full value chain for insulated wire and cable products produced from copper, aluminium, optical fibre, and associated materials, and included leadership debates featuring Prysmian, Ducab Cable, Tratos and Corning.
