Bad weather in North America certainly must have made travel to K 2010 a little more difficult this year. If any Plastics Blog readers had their trips delayed or canceled, I encourage you to post a comment. Meantime, we already know about some other travel-related adventures in Dusseldorf, Germany, this year. For one, there were some rail strikes in Germany on Tuesday (the day before the show opened). It didn't cause any major problems here -- it's a testament to the train system that most of our staff didn't even realize that there had been a strike. And the unions have since promised that additional stoppages are unlikely this week. The other travel-related problem did hit closer to home. A few of our staffers -- Robert Grace (Plastics News' editor), Frank Esposito (senior reporter) and Jeff Williams (national sales manager) all arrived in Dusseldorf more-or-less on time. But their bags did not. So for the first day of the show, all three got by with a combination of borrowed clothes and items purchased here in town. The good news is their bags all arrived by late Wednesday. Here's hoping for good weather and safe travels for all the plastics industry visitors at Messe Dusseldorf this week.
