Chinaplas 2011 has been increasing its scale in the coming 25th edition. The total exhibition area will further expand to over 180,000sqm. Tracing back to the 1st edition in 1983, the area was only some thousands square meters.
Later in 2007, the exhibition area achieved the first-time breakthrough of 100,000sqm. The major reason causing the double increment in the scale is the synergy effect generated by the rapid development of the plastics and rubber industries, plus its application industries, such as automotive, packaging, electronics and electrical appliances, building and construction, as well as the implementation of China's new policies.
Some prestigious corporations who have exhibited for years also expressed their feelings toward Chinaplas. Mr. Hermann Althoff, Group Vice President, Engineering Plastics Asia Pacific, BASF expressed that in Chinaplas, they could contact many existing clients and potential clients and the show also helped them promote their new products and solutions quickly.

Mr. Kenny Wu, Corporate President, Shini Group said, "Chinaplas has been growing successfully and its influence is prominent to the world. It is honoured to participate in this fair."
With the rising demand on the plastics and rubber technology and the recycling technology for the plastic products, it is anticipated that the potential development of the plastics and rubber industries will be enormous.
