Plastmilan postponed again; to be held in 2022

The organiser of the Italian Plast show in Milan has decided to postpone the event to a future date, which it says will be after the end of 2021. In January, it had said that the next edition of the Italian trade fair was to take place in Milan from 22-25 June 2021 as opposed to the previously announced dates of 4-7 May 2021.

Plast is organised by the Italian plastics machinery industry association Amaplast and in the recent statement it issued, it added that the latest decision was taken “in the light of the ongoing pandemic and uncertainties regarding the timeline and methods of the vaccination campaign — elements that continue to condition activities in the plastics and rubber industry and strongly limit travel by Italian and foreign operators.”

The organiser also said, “The current situation and the impossibility of envisaging future options with any reasonable degree of confidence make it impossible to adequately plan and organise an international event of the stature of Plast. Both the organisers and the participants require a significant amount of time to plan the event and this cannot be guaranteed at present.”

The previous edition of the trade fair took place in Milan from 29 May to 1 June 2018. It featured 1,510 exhibitors from 55 countries, occupied a net area of 55,000 sq m in six halls of Fiera Milano in Rho-Pero, and drew in 63,000 visitors from 117 countries. The triennial Italian plastics trade fair took place concurrently with the Italian packaging trade fair Ipack-Ima, the Meat-Tech fair for food processing, and the printing trade events Print4All and Intralogistica Italia.
