Interplastica 2019 in Moscow Continues Successful Course

With 99% sold out exhibit space, interplastica 2019, 22nd International Trade Fair for Plastics and Rubber, continues its positive development and is set to reach the excellent results from 2018 (650 exhibitors from 31 countries). The demand in the raw materials segment is as strong as for machinery and equipment. The event will take place at the AO Expocenter in Moscow, Russia from January 29 – February 1, 2019.

Registered exhibitors include the major suppliers from the plastics and packaging industries as well as specialized SMEs, longstanding participants and a high number of new exhibitors. As for the international exhibitor participation, Germany, Austria, Italy and China are particularly well represented. In addition, numerous companies from Turkey will take part in interplastica 2019.

The exhibits will be complemented by a ancillary program. One of the highlights will be the special show 3D fab+print Russia in Hall 2.3, held concurrently with interplastica for the third time. It will focus 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 attraction will be the Polymer Plaza in Hall 1 with lectures and discussions on raw materials production, application and processing. Focal themes will include sustainability along the value chain and environmental issues.
