The presentations of exhibiting companies at K 2016 will be supplemented by a special show illustrating the potential of plastics and rubber for forward-looking applications. With reference to examples from different sectors, it shows the extent to which their diversified properties shape our lives today and the contributions that they can make in the solution of important everyday problems. The special show is being organised by the German plastics industry under the auspices of PlasticsEurope Deutschland e.V. and Messe Düsseldorf.
Another highlight of the supporting programme at K 2016 will be the Science Campus, the forum for research and teaching. The Science Campus provides a compact overview of the activities and findings of university and scientific organisations and helps to intensify dialogue between research and industry.
Current information on everything to do with K 2016 and the industry is available at www.k-online.com. Regularly updated, reports from science and research can be found here along with articles from the international trade press. The gamut of information provided by the website also extends to a complete overview of the other events for the plastics and rubber industry in which Messe Düsseldorf is involved. The service is rounded off with a list of the world's most important trade media and a retrospective of K 2013.
