The variety and quality of technical papers at this year’s CabWire Conference in Milan, Italy, was the highlight for delegates attending the one-day conference.
‘Innovations driving worldwide wire and cable markets’ was the theme for the event, held at the Palazzo Turati in Milan on Monday, 4th November.
Organised by the International Wire and Machinery Association and so-organised by ACIMAF, IWCEA, CET and the WAI, the welcome was given by both Ferruccio Bellina of ACIMAF and Guillio Properzi, of Continuus Properzi SpA.
Keynote speakers were economic development specialist Professor Vitale, of Italy, who presented ‘Towards a new economy: the maps of Europe and Italy,’ and Philip Radbourne, of Integer Research, UK, who presented ‘A review of the European wire and cable sector’ to delegates.
There was also a good take-up of visitors to the table-top conference throughout the day. More than 180 people attended the event, and the gala dinner in the evening at the Palazzo Clerici, originally the home of the rich and influential noble family of Milan Clerici.
“Well established and renowned international companies acted as both speakers and visitors to CabWire,” said Andy Lewis, executive manager of the lead organising IWMA. “The whole event was well attended and the feedback we have received has been both positive and praising.”
