Messe Düsseldorf and Crain Communications, publisher of Plastics News, have announced the launch of a new two-day conference to be held at the K show in October.

The event will offer both designers and material companies the opportunity to showcase their use of materials in innovative design for a variety of product sectors via a range of presentations with the emphasis on real time case studies.

The Crain Communications conference 'Design Chain@K' will be held over two mornings during the K Show in Düsseldorf, Germany, on Oct. 21-22.

The Design Chain Conference will have a breadth of sessions offering an insight into the practical and technical innovation aspects of the Design Chain in today's plastics arena. Looking not only at the designer's use of plastics, but also the manufacturing, supply chain and project management issues that product designers have to deal with. Presentations will be based around case studies of design and manufacturing projects and will be presented by a designer and their material partner in the design project which will reflect the Design Chain process.

Market sectors such as Automotive, Medical, Consumer Electronics, Consumer Goods, Construction, Packaging, Sustainability and innovations in 3D printing have already been targeted as key areas for the conference to explore.

Director of conferences for Crain Communications UK, Jerry Taylor, said: "Launching a purposeful conference at this prestigious show in October will present a unique platform for designers and their material providers to illustrate the whole process of design and supply in the plastics area. This event shows that the K show continues to innovate and develop the key sectors affecting the global plastics business. We are pleased to announce that Chris Lefteri will act as chair for the conference and Chris brings with him an unrivaled wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise."
