DÜSSELDORF, GERMANY — A special area in Hall 6 at the K 2016 trade show will give insight into how plastics can shape the future and solve tomorrow's challenges, in functional, aesthetic and sustainable ways.
Topics like resource efficiency, lightweight construction, new materials, Industry 4.0 and marine litter will be addressed in panel discussions and presented through multiple media, according to Werner Matthias Dornscheidt, president and CEO of Messe Düsseldorf GmbH.
“While the special show is directed at industry decision-makers and also reaches the general public through multipliers and the media, the Science Campus is the meeting place for the scientific community. This is where institutions, universities and other establishments will present their latest research results in the complex field of plastics and rubber and connect with industrial users,” he said in a news release.
The special show is organized by the German plastics industry under the auspices of PlasticsEurope Deutschland and Messe Düsseldorf.
The 2016 show will be held Oct. 19-26 in Düsseldorf.
Dornscheidt said all 19 halls at the Düsseldorf exhibition center are completely booked. The last K show, in 2013, hosted 3,220 exhibitors from 59 countries as well as about 218,000 visitors from more than 100 countries.
