Global plastics industry active for climate protection, circular economy and digitalisation
These clearly lead in the direction of climate protection, the circular economy and digitalisation – and these are also the three declared guiding themes of K 2022. The open exchange and dialogue on solution-oriented innovations and sustainable developments across national borders and continents will also be the focus of this year's K in Düsseldorf. Nowhere else is the plastics and rubber industry gathered in one place with such a high degree of internationality and thus has the ideal conditions for intensive global networking and jointly advancing projects.
Suppliers from all over the worldSuppliers from Europe, especially from Germany, Italy, Austria, Turkey, The Netherlands, Switzerland and France, but also from the USA will be particularly well represented this year. At the same time, K clearly reflects the changes in the world market: the number and presentation area of companies from Asia have been at a consistently high level for several years. China, Taiwan, India, South Korea and Japan in particular will impress with strong appearances. The approximately 3000 exhibitors from 61 countries will occupy the entire Düsseldorf exhibition centre.
K 2022 is already presenting dedicated expert know-how with the K-Talk. Once a month, this digital live talk in English offers exciting discussion rounds with changing international participants on different focal points, always with a focus on the three main themes of K 2022. The first K-Talk, which already took place on 20 January under the motto "Climate protection and plastics – do they go together?", is still available on-demand, as are all subsequent K-Talks. The K-Talk in February is all about plastics in medicine, while the discussion in March is dedicated to mechanical engineering.www.k-online.de
