Expertise Worldwide – Düsseldorf Becomes Plastics-Capital for One Week
The interplastica is Russia’s leading specialist trade show for plastics and rubber technology. Following the weak years of the international financial and economic crisis, this market is currently undergoing a significant revival. The exhibitors at interplastica 2013 have reported very promising business negotiations and contracts. A total of 20,000 experts attended interplastica 2013 and the UPAKOVKA/UPAK ITALIA, the Italian specialist fair for packaging technology, which takes place at the same time. Some visitors came from far afield to see the new technologies presented by international and local companies.
The interplastica 2014, this 17th international trade fair of the plastics and rubber industry, will be hosted from 28 until 31 January on Moscow’s exhibition grounds Zao Expocentr in Krasnaja Presnja, and will again be hosted at the same time as the UPAKOVKA/UPAK ITALIA. Already, there is a clear increase of exhibitor registrations. More than 1,000 exhibitors will attend both trade shows for a comprehensive overview of the plastics and packaging industry. The highest number of exhibitors is expected to hail from Russia, Germany and Italy, but China, France, Austria, Portugal, Taiwan and Turkey will also be represented in force. A special show on raw materials will also inform visitors on the latest developments and products of Russian and international exhibitors – a perfect enhancement of the interplastica.
Messe Duesseldorf in Vietnam
Messe Düsseldorf is also active in the growing Vietnamese market: together with Bangkok Exhibition Services Ltd., Messe Düsseldorf ASIA will host the Plastics & Rubber Vietnam, which will take place from 4 until 6 March, 2014 in Ho-Chi-Minh City. In 2012, this event at the Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC), which took place at the same time as the leading packaging trade show Propak Vietnam, was attended by 145 exhibitors and visited by about 7,500 experts.
Vietnam is considered a market with major potential. In the wake of the country’s booming consumer industries such as electronic and automotive engineering, the local plastics and rubber segment is predicted to experience steady growth over the next years – with the corresponding need for investment.
