Global plastics and rubber industry to meet at K 2010 in Düsseldorf
The triennial international trade fair for plastics and rubber, K 2010, will open its doors from 27 October – 3 November 2010 in Düsseldorf, Germany. Despite the difficult economic times for the industry, some 3,000 exhibitors have registered and all 19 of the available halls will be occupied.
The organiser Messe Düsseldorf GmbH is confident that by October the economy will have turned around and the market will once again take the stage at full strength and in all its diversity. Latest developments will be presented in the four main focal areas of the trade show: machinery and equipment; raw materials, auxiliaries; semi-finished products, technical parts and reinforced plastics; and services. Once again, suppliers from Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, and the USA as well as Asian manufacturers from China, Taiwan, and India will be strongly represented. The 2007 event featured a total of 3,114 exhibitors and 242,000 visitors.
The trade fair will include a special presentation themed “Visions in Polymers”, organised by the PlasticsEurope Deutschlande.V. association in cooperation with Messe Düsseldorf. Various examples from different aspects of life will be used to illustrate trends in development and innovations the industry has in the pipeline. Focal areas will be energy efficiency and conserving resources.
