Already before the registration deadline on May 31, K 2016 is experiencing strong demand for exhibit space, officials say.

All 19 halls will again be fully booked and some 3,000 exhibitors will offer a complete overview of the plastics and rubber world market. Companies from all continents have already registered to present their innovations in the following exhibit categories from Oct. 19-26, 2016 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany:

  • Raw materials, auxiliaries
  • Semi-finished products, technical parts and reinforced plastics
  • Machinery and equipment for the plastics and rubber industry.
"Due to its unparalleled range of products and the unmatched internationality of exhibitors and visitors, the trade fair is in a class of its own worldwide. It is the place where key decisions for products, processes and problem-solving are made and it points the way forward for the entire industry for the coming years," says Werner M. Dornscheidt, president and CEO of Messe Düsseldorf. "We are delighted that demand for exhibition space is again extremely strong. The companies from the plastics and rubber sector know that they can look forward to an excellent platform for their business success every three years in Düsseldorf.”  
The presentations of the exhibitors at K 2016 will be complemented by a special show illustrating the possible uses of plastics and their diversified properties today as well as in the future. This special show will be organized by the German plastics industry under the auspices of PlasticsEurope Deutschland and Messe Düsseldorf.

Another highlight of the K 2016 ancillary program will be the Science Campus - the forum for research and teaching. In this special zone, institutes, universities and other higher education institutions will present their latest scientific findings in the field of plastics and rubber and help to strengthen the dialogue between research and industry.
