K 2022 From October 19 – 26, 2022 in Düsseldorf, Germany: Global Plastics and Rubber Industry Jointly Active for Climate Protection, Circular Economy and Digitalization

At the start of the K year, it is once again evident that plastics and rubber experts are in agreement: K in Düsseldorf, Germany, is the world’s most important meeting place for the entire industry. Exhibitors from all over the world come to Düsseldorf to demonstrate the industry’s capabilities and together with the visitors actively set the course for the future. This clearly leads to climate protection, circular economy and digitization – and these are also the three declared guiding themes of K 2022.

The open exchange and dialog on solution-oriented innovations and sustainable developments across borders and continents will also be the focus of this year’s K in Düsseldorf. Nowhere else is the plastics and rubber industry gathered in one place with such a high degree of internationality and thus has the ideal conditions for intensive global networking and jointly advancing projects.

Suppliers from Europe, especially Germany, Italy, Austria, Turkey, the Netherlands, Switzerland and France, will again be particularly strongly represented this year, but also suppliers from the U.S.. At the same time, K clearly reflects the changes in the global market: the number and exhibit space of companies from Asia have been at a consistently high level for several years. China, Taiwan, India, South Korea and Japan in particular will impress with strong appearances.

The approximately 3,000 exhibitors from 61 countries will occupy the entire Düsseldorf fairgrounds. The K 2022 exhibitor database is accessible at www.k-online.com/2410

K 2022 is already presenting concentrated expert know-how with its K-Talk.

Once a month, this digital live talk in English features exciting panel discussions with changing international participants on different focal points, always with a focus on the three key themes  of K 2022. The first K-Talk, which took place on January 20 with the title “Climate Protection and Plastics – Do they Go Together?” – like all future K-Talks – is still available on-demand. The K-Talk in February will focus on plastics in medicine while the discussion in March will be devoted to mechanical engineering.

Launched last April, the online magazine K-MAG is aimed at all industries related to K and delivers facts, news, stories and trends from the international plastics and rubber industry in German and English all year

K-monthly is the new Newsletter of K. Subscribers not only receive the most interesting news and stories from the K-MAG via e-mail, but also the latest information about K in Düsseldorf and the international trade fairs of the K-Global Gate portfolio. Subscription is possible via the K website or the K-MAG.

The Ticketshop for K 2022  will open in April 2022.
