Founded in 1970, the International Wire & Machinery Association is the world's largest and most influential corporate association for the wire, cable and wire product industries.

The IWMA's mission is to promote new technology, education and growth within the industry, and its events and conferences offer an international forum for technological advance and best practice.

As a proud wire industry partner of Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, the IWMA support services for members make attending and exhibiting at major trade events easy.

Members also enjoy excellent publicity opportunities through the association's Wire & Cable News newsletter, and a lively and informative website.

The association actively encourages industry stars of the future through the IWMA Educational Trust Fund, which offers newcomers the opportunities to gain new skills.
