K 2019, the trade fair for plastics and rubber, is scheduled to take place in Düsseldorf, Germany from 16 to 23 October 2019, and is now fully booked. Over 3000 exhibitors from more than 60 countries have registered to participate in K. The event will occupy the entire Düsseldorf exhibition grounds with around 175,000 square meters of net exhibition space, and more than 200,000 trade visitors from across the world are expected.
K, an eight-day event, is a platform for the plastics and rubber industry to meet, demonstrate the industry’s capabilities, discuss current trends and set the course for the future. K 2019 maintains its position by addressing the current challenges of the era and especially of its sector, first and foremost in regard to ‘plastics for sustainable development’ and the ‘circular economy’. These topics will be addressed by exhibitors on their stands and will also be covered comprehensively in the supporting program.
The special exhibition, ‘Plastics Shape the Future,’ will give solutions and answers to current social trends and discussions. Crucial topics will be discussed in detail, including packaging waste, marine litter and climate change on the one hand and resource conservation, energy efficiency and recycling on the other. ‘Plastics Shape the Future’ will offer an international information and networking platform and will also provide for greater involvement of policymakers and socially relevant groups in the form of keynote speeches and speed talks.
The Science Campus of K 2019 will facilitate dialog between science and industry, with sustainability and recycling management. Also, the joint appearance of VDMA (German Engineering Federation) and its member companies will focus on the topic of the circular economy.
