PLAST 2015: International Exhibition for Plastics and Rubber Industries
Assocomaplast – through its commercial company Promaplast srl – is the organizer of PLAST 2015, the international exhibition for the plastics and rubber industry, which will take place at the Milan fairgrounds from the 5th through the 9th of May, 2015.
PLAST 2015 will be again supported by EUROMAP (Europe’s Association for Plastics and Rubber Machinery Manufacturers), it is an approved event by UFI (The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry) and gained official patronage from the Italian Ministry of Economic Development.
As per audited data, in last edition PLAST occupied 56.832 net sqm, with 1.514 exhibitors from 58 countries and 50.593 selected professional visitors from 121 countries and, despite economic downturn in Europe at that time, it was a key event for thousand Italian and European specialized companies. Based on such record, PLAST is expected to be the largest exhibition in 2015 in Europe for our sector and, as soon as application were started, we already received an outstanding response from key players in our industry.
Next time, a huge international visitors’ flow is expected at PLAST also thanks to the extraordinary coincidence with EXPO 2015 (Milan, May 1/October 31, 2015 at walking distance from PLAST), whose main theme (“Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”) is also significantly linked to the plastics industry.
Such coincidence will be therefore easing also overseas operators of our sector, through the agencies of participating countries at EXPO (to date 142) entrusted for supporting visiting delegations in Milan. Special sections are already scheduled for the rubber industry (RUBBER 2015) and for business incubators (START PLAST). Side events on food packaging, medical sector and recycling are also scheduled and details will be advised in due course. For further information go to www.plastonline.org.
