The big K 2013 trade show will get started on Oct. 16, and already the show floor is abuzz with activity. Today workers are moving some big iron around, installing machines and building exhibits throughout the Düsseldorf, Germany, fairground.

Plastics News is on-site, getting ready for a busy show that will include six English-language dailies. (You can sign up to receive digital versions.)

Stop by our exhibit at Hall 6, Stand C08, once the show kicks off. We look forward to seeing you.
