It’s K time! The course is set for 2010

World’s biggest trade fair for plastics and rubber will take place in Düsseldorf from 27 October to 3 November 2010


Special presentation “Visions in Polymers” shows the future of the material

What will our everyday life look like in 20 years’ time? What contribution can plastics make to solving important problems? Which potential applications that still appear visionary today will already have been introduced in two decades? These questions will be at the heart of the special presentation at K 2010 in Düsseldorf from 27 October to 3 November 2010. Titled “Visions in Polymers”, the presentation will show with reference to examples from different areas of life what development trends can be discerned and what innovations the industry has in store. Special consideration will be given in this regard to the topics of energy efficiency and resource conservation.

Organising the special presentation is the responsibility of the German plastics industry, led by PlasticsEurope Deutschland e.V., and Messe Düsseldorf. The presentation will feature further future-oriented aspects to complement exhibitors’ offerings at the International Trade Fair for Plastics and Rubber.

As well as focusing on the theme of the special presentation at its latest meeting, the exhibitor council for K 2010 determined the new look of the world’s biggest fair for the plastics and rubber industry. “It’s K time” is the slogan that will invite the industry to Düsseldorf. The dynamic new identity characterises all posters, brochures and advertising motifs for K 2010 as well as the website http://www.k-online.de/.

The exhibitor invitations are now being produced as a first step and these will be sent to interested companies around the world at the beginning of next year. For all firms wishing to take part in the leading trade fair, the closing date for registrations is 31 May 2009. The organiser, Messe Düsseldorf, once again anticipates a huge response. The show offering will reflect the proven three-way categorisation of machinery, raw material production as well as plastics and rubber processing.

K 2007 attracted 3,130 exhibitors and 242,000 trade visitors.
