Promaplast has announced that the Plast show, the Italian exhibition for the plastics and rubber industry, will be joining with I-Pack-IMA, Meat-Tech, Print4All and Intralogistica Italia in one big event that will go under the Innovation Alliance umbrella in a future trade show.
The event will take place in the Fairgrounds of Fiera Milano in Rho, Italy, from May 29 to June 1, 2018.
When the Plast show last took place in May 2015, the organizers said they had scheduled the next event to take place in 2017, breaking with the traditional three-year cycle for Plast. This was to avoid scheduling conflicts with NPE 2018 in Orlando, Fla. But following IPack-IMA's change in ownership and the good relationship between Plast and IPack-IMA's new owners, the event has been moved in order for Plast take part in a joint exhibition.
NPE 2018 takes place May 7-11, 2018, a little over two weeks before the rescheduled Plast 2018 fair.
Promaplast states that visitors will be able to see integrated technologies in one place on one site and there will be a much larger attendance than in the previous individual exhibitions.
Companies will be able to register for the event in the upcoming months say the organizers.
