More than 3000 plastics and rubber processing firms will exhibit their latest solutions at the ‘already fully booked’ K2019 show, which will take place from 16 to 23 October this year, reports Werner Dornscheidt, ceo and president of event organiser Messe Düsseldorf.
‘One thing is already clear: K 2019 will again provide a comprehensive overview of the global market, and the show will provide a strong impetus for future developments,’ says Dornscheidt. He expects this year’s edition of the event to repeat the ‘vastly successful performance’ of K 2016 – which welcomed 71% of international visitors. The trade show’s location is Düsseldorf, Germany, where cutting edge products will be displayed from sectors like;
- Raw materials and auxiliaries
- Semi-finished goods, technical components and reinforced plastic products
- Machines and equipment for the plastics and rubber industries
This time around, exhibitor’s innovations and many accompanying events will focus on the interconnection between the digital world, production processes and new product developments as well as on the promotion of the circular economy.
Additionally, the special show “Plastics Shape The Future” presents pioneering areas of application for polymer materials and takes a closer look at how these materials with their diverse properties are affecting modern environments.
At the show’s Science Campus, university and research organisations will present current activities and results – ‘this is where research meets economy’. Over the next few months, the Science Council and its sub-committees will define the key topics to be addressed at the specially integrated conference. Speakers will focus on innovative materials and technologies with a substantial impact on global challenges such as additives, energy and waste management, resource efficiency, recycling software and sustainable business models.
‘Thanks to its unrivalled internationality, both in terms of exhibitors and visitors, and because it covers a unique product and service range, this tri-annual trade show has a special status among global trade shows and provides the perfect stage for pioneering presentations,’ Dornscheidt says of the flagship event.
