PLAST 2023’s international scope, focus on networking

In addition to Italian companies that are world market leaders, the 2023 edition of PLAST will feature a large number of exhibitors and visitors, as well as buyers representing over 250 industry operators from 30 countries and the top performing export markets. A result of the constant commitment to building a community of partnerships that allows exhibitors to find unique networking opportunities during the event.

There is a significant presence of collectives from China, France, and Iran, three markets that have performed quite well in terms of imports of technology for the production of plastics. Italian exports in 2022 to the three countries amounted to EUR149.27 million (4.6%), EUR148.94 million (4.59%), and EUR6.9 million (0.21%), respectively.

When it comes to the top export markets for Italian manufacturers of plastics and rubber processing machines, Germany leads with EUR422.6 million (13.02%), followed by the United States with EUR346.62 million (10.67%), and Poland with EUR179.76 million (5.54%). China and France come in fourth and fifth, respectively, in this ranking.

There are also initiatives aimed at specific international markets, such as tours to key sector fairs such as Equiplast in Barcelona and Plastexpo in El Jadida (Morocco), as well as participation in collectives at Saudi PPP in Riyadh, Chinaplas, and Plastico Brazil.

Sustainability and innovation for the plastics market

The six halls hosting the fair present a wide-ranging mix of technological innovation and sustainability: from materials to processing, from finished products to services and the most advanced solutions developed by manufacturers of plastics and rubber processing machinery, equipment, auxiliaries, and moulds. More space for excellence, this time in a green hue, is provided by the exhibition-conference Greenplast, focusing on the sustainability of materials, technologies, and transformation processes for plastics and rubber. Added to this are the satellite fairs 3DPlast, dedicated to additive manufacturing, Rubber, as the name suggests, and Plast Mat, which looks particularly at innovative solutions for materials.

The big event in Milan is drawing closer

The future of the plastics and rubber industry is in Milan from 5 to 8 September, in an event currently numbering over 1,200 registered exhibitors, of whom hundreds are international, occupying the six halls with innovative technological proposals. Official buyer delegations are also expected from at least 30 countries. Pre-registration is now open for professional operators who want to interact with a specialised market and receive a detailed look at solutions that meet all of their product, technology, systems, and business needs.
