In 2019, about 3,000 exhibitors will again flock to Düsseldorf to attend their global flagship fair. Companies from all over the world have booked their booth, where they will present their latest products from any of the areas listed below:
- Raw materials and auxiliaries
- Semi-finished goods, technical components and reinforced plastic products
- Machines and equipment for the plastics and rubber industries
As the special status of K 2019 is reflected by the impressive feedback from the global industry, it also underlines this important role by addressing the most important issues that concern the industry. Therefore, 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 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 by the special show and the Science Campus. They will focus on innovative materials and technologies with a substantial impact on global challenges such as water, energy and waste management, resource efficiency, digitization and sustainable development.
Additional events such as those presentations that focus on the training and development in the plastics and rubber industries or on the subject of additive production, are currently being prepared.
