Worldwide Plastics and Rubber Industry Focuses on K 2022

High demand for personal exchange, information and networking on a global scale

Key topics: circular economy, digitalization and climate protection

As exhibitor registration for K 2022, The World’s No. 1 Trade fair for Plastics and Rubber, closes, it is evident that exhibitor interest continues unabated. “K 2022 will again occupy the entire fairgrounds. When talking to exhibitors we feel that there is an enormous demand for personal exchange on a global level,” stated Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director at Messe Düsseldorf.  K will take place from October 19 – 26, 2022 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.

K 2022 will again welcome the “Who’s Who” of the international plastics and rubber industry. Some 3,000 companies from all continents have registered to exhibit their innovations in the segments:

  • Raw materials, auxiliaries
  • Semi-finished products, technical components and reinforced plastic products
  • Machinery and equipment for the plastics and rubber industry.

K provides the global plastics and rubber industries with their most important information and business platform. This is where exhibitors and visitors from all over the world get together to  demonstrate the industry’s capabilities, discuss current trends and set the course for the future. K 2022 comes at just the right time to give the plastics and rubber sector renewed orientation after the changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

K is not only the venue for groundbreaking new products every three years, but also underscores its special status by addressing the current challenges of our time and especially of its industry. This is reflected above all in the three major key themes of K 2022:

  • Circular Economy
  • Digitalization
  • Climate Protection

These leading themes will be reflected by the exhibitors’ presentations and will also be the focus of the official special show “Plastics Shape the Future”, the Science Campus and VDMA’s Circular Economy Forum.

Part of the K trade fair’s success is that it is always geared to the needs of the market and develops its concept accordingly. This is why the physical event on site is being expanded to include additional digital content. “This consolidates the leading position of K in Düsseldorf as the central communication and information platform for its industry – for the duration of the physical  trade fair and beyond,” said Erhard Wienkamp.
