Exhibition space at K 2025 is in high demand the world over. Under the motto: The Power of Plastics! Green – Smart – Responsible the coming K will focus on the industry’s relevant fields of action: Circular Economy, Digitalisation and Social Responsibility. K 2025 will follow on from an extremely successful event in 2022. After the official registration deadline in late May one thing is certain: all renowned companies in the international plastics and rubber industry will take part in this their leading trade fair held in October next year. Demand for stand space is high and all 18 halls of Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre and the outdoor premises will be fully occupied again.

To Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director at Messe Düsseldorf, the great interest shown by the industry as a whole confirms the outstanding position of K Düsseldorf: “K 2025 will provide the complete overview of a plastics industry undergoing transformation and again have a plethora of impressive innovations in store. We know that many of our exhibitors are already preparing their product innovations and presentations at full speed. Düsseldorf will once again provide forward-looking impetus for the entire plastics and rubber industry.”

More than 3,000 exhibitors will participate in K 2025 from 8 to 15 October and introduce the global expert audience to their ranges in the areas of

  • Raw materials, auxiliaries
  • Semi-finished products, technical components and reinforced plastic parts
  • Machinery and equipment for the plastics and rubber industry.

Especially well represented again will be the suppliers from Germany, Italy, Turkey, Austria, Switzerland and the USA while the number of producers from China, India and Taiwan has increased yet again.


“The Power of Plastics! Green – Smart – Responsible.” reads the slogan of K 2025, which is complemented by three core messages “Shaping the Circular Economy”, “Embracing Digitalisation” and “Caring about People”. This places the focus on the three most relevant fields of action for the sector: Circular Economy, Digitalisation and People. The latter involves corporate social responsibility just as much as future career perspectives for young professionals in the plastics and rubber sectors.  

K in Düsseldorf is a trend barometer and innovation forum for the global industry. Every three years the latest developments celebrate their debuts here, innovative and pioneering technologies are presented and international networks established. The exhibitors’ ranges at their stands are complemented by K’s special formats. The special show organised by Plastics Europe Deutschland, will also reflect the three focal themes of K 2025. At the Science Campus the latest activities and results of university and science organisations will be presented again – here research and business are dovetailed. Organised by the Plastics and Rubber Machinery Association within the German Machinery and Equipment Manufacturers’ Association (VDMA) a large Circular Economy Forum is planned to feature on the outdoor premises where exhibitors demonstrate the pivotal importance of technology for implementing the circular economy in the plastics industry. A Hotspot on the theme of rubber will be the re-designed Rubberstreet under the auspices of the wdk e.V. (Trade Association of the German Rubber Industry) in Hall 6. Here, exhibitors will be showcasing the innovative operational excellence of rubber and thermoplastic elastomers.
