interplastica, the 22nd International Trade Fair for Plastics and Rubber, to be held at the AO Expocenter in Krasnaja Presnja (Moscow) from 29 January to 1 February, continues to develop very positively.
After 650 exhibitors from 31 countries presented their ranges at the latest interplastica in January 2018, prospects are also excellent for 2019. There is growing evidence that next year's edition will post similarly good KPIs. After the official deadline for registrations in late September only some small stand spaces are still available and will be allocated until the end of November 2018. The demand in the raw materials segment is as strong as for machinery and equipment.
Registered exhibitors include the major suppliers from the plastics and packaging industries as well as specialised SMEs, longstanding participants and a strikingly high number of new exhibitors. As for the international attendance Germany, Austria, Italy and also China are particularly well represented. Furthermore, numerous companies from Turkey will take part in interplastica 2019.
The ranges displayed by exhibitors will be accompanied by a programme of technical side events. One of the highlights will be the special show 3D fab+print Russia in Hall 2.3, to be held concurrently with interplastica for the third time now. It focuses on the fast growing areas of Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing. Both Russian and international experts will discuss the developments, opportunities and challenges of this young technology while exhibitors will showcase their innovative products and solutions.
Another major attraction for the international expert audience will be the Polymer Plaza in Hall 1. With lectures and discussions on raw materials production, application and processing this lecture forum proves an extremely valuable add-on feature for trade fair visitors. Focal themes will include sustainability along the value chain and environmental issues, to name but two.
Held in parallel with interplastica 2019 again will be upakovka – processing and packaging with more than 250 exhibitors, generating clear synergies. While interplastica occupies Halls 1, 2 and 8, upakovka will be held at the HalleForum. To the tune of 25,000 trade visitors are expected to attend the two trade fairs. Admission tickets to interplastica also grant access to upakovka and vice versa.
