Wire & Cable Guangzhou returns for 2019 with four dedicated zones

Wire & Cable Guangzhou is set to take place from 11 – 13 June 2019 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou, China.

Benefiting from the Belt and Road Initiative and China’s 13th Five-Year Plan, the 2019 show is projected to exceed the previous edition in terms of scale. Four specialised zones will be present at the show to meet the sourcing requirements of an expected 30,000 professional trade buyers from the electric power, architectural, transportation and property development sectors.

Organised by China Southern Power Grid Media Co Ltd, Guangzhou BoYou Exhibition Service Co Ltd and Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd, the fair has obtained a positive reputation in the Chinese and overseas power transmission industry over the past few years. The 2018 edition, which was held concurrently with Electric Asia, attracted an impressive 22,670 visitors from 41 countries and regions.

Mr Emeka Hu, General Manager of Guangzhou Guangya Messe
Frankfurt Co Ltd, explained how the show can prosper from China’s economic policies: “Research published by TMR shows that the Asia-Pacific region will continue to be at the forefront of demand within the global cable market with a predicted CAGR of 4.8% in 2026[1]. Meanwhile, in the 13th Five Year Plan, the Chinese government has made a significant statement regarding its intent to enhance electrical infrastructure and develop a smart grid in China. Demand will also come from countries along the Belt and Road, who have great needs for electrical power infrastructure. Both policies offer an unprecedented positive future for the industry, and we are very proud that Wire & Cable Guangzhou is situated to continue serving as a gateway to South China’s wire and cable industry.”China Southern Power Grid, one of the leading electrical power construction companies in China, plans to seize the opportunities brought about by China’s 13th Five-Year Plan for renewable energy deployment.

“We target to increase the scale of renewable energy generation in five provinces to around 174 million kilowatts by 2020. We also aim to construct a series of 8 AC (Alternative Current) and 11 DC (Direct Current) transmission channels, and add 16 million kilowatts of transmission capacity across provincial channels,” revealed Mr Feixiong Hu, Director of Planning and Development Department of China Southern Power Grid.

China Southern Grid Media, one of the fair’s organisers, will utilise its strong position in the wire and cable market to draw a relevant group of participants and supporters to the show. Some of the fair’s most notable supporters include EHV Power Transmission Co, China Southern Power Grid Power Generation Co, Guangdong Power Grid Co, Yunnan Power Grid Co, Guizhou Power Grid Co, Hainan Power Grid Co, Guangzhou Power Supply Bureau Co Ltd, Shenzhen Power Supply Bureau Co Ltd, China Southern Power Grid Electric Power Research Institute and China Southern Power Grid Energy Co Ltd.Four specialised zones to highlight the latest trends in the wire and cable industry
