In September 2022, the NE Drahtforum conference took place for the second time as an attendance event. It was organized by the consortium NE Drahtforum / NF Wire Forum and had the main topic, “Sustainability in the supply chain of the NF (nonferrous) wire industry”. The two-day event was held at the Seminaris Hotel in Nuremberg, southern Germany, and fully booked with around 150 participants. It began with a plant tour at the headquarters of Maschinenfabrik NIEHOFF GmbH & Co. KG, an internationally leading manufacturer of machinery for the wire and cable industry, in the neighboring town of Schwabach, Germany.
