Show Organizer

The Wire Association International (WAI), Inc., founded in 1930, is a worldwide technical society for wire and cable industry professionals that is governed by volunteers from around the world. Based in Madison, Connecticut, USA, WAI promotes, collects, and disseminates technical, manufacturing, and general business information to the ferrous, nonferrous, electrical, fiber optic, and fastener segments of the wire and cable industry.

“Interwire is such a great venue to meet with a concentration of customers and network with wire industry peers. Some talk about the expense of attending trade shows, I see it as an investment. Customer needs change quickly, this is another opportunity to remain ahead of their dynamic improvements. ."
~ David Ferraro, President, Carris Reels
