Italian plastics exhibition for 2015 registers 1,000 exhibitors

Plast 2015, which will take place from 5-9 May 2015 at the Fiera Milano fairgrounds in Rho during the EXPO 2015 inaugural week, is showing strong response from Italian and foreign companies. According to Promaplast srl, the organiser of this international exhibition for the plastics and rubber industry, more than 1,000 companies haven taken advantage of the early booking opportunity for Plast 2015.

The organiser also says the number of exhibitors registered during this period are the same for the edition that was held in 2012 edition, in spite of the economic crisis and recession that have struck almost all branches of Italian and international industry.

“The plastics and rubber machinery and moulds sector has held firm in a contest of continuing domestic recession,” stated the Promaplast Managing Director Mario Maggiani. “It is a sector of excellence in Italy which has made innovation its strong suit. The 2012 edition of Plast had a total of 1,500 exhibitors and 50,000 visitors. In 2015, thanks to the concomitance with the opening week of EXPO, we expect an even stronger response from exhibitors and visitors alike.”

A note on the sector for 2013 shared during the member assembly of Assocomaplast, the Italian Plastics and Rubber Processing Machinery and Moulds Manufacturers’ Association, shows an overall production increase of 1.3% for member companies with exports leading the way as a fundamental factor for the industry, representing over 70% of revenues on average. “This is a positive trend across the entire industry. If it continues from here to Plast 2015, it will have unquestionably positive outcomes in terms of growth in numbers of exhibitors and visitors, both expected to show gains,” says Promaplast.

The plastics and rubber industry is a driving force in the Italian economy and highly competitive in the international arena. A range of novel initiatives will be presented during Plast 2015, such as the business incubator Start Plast, a section dedicated to innovation, research and development. And there will also be returning initiatives, such as the satellite exhibition RUBBER, dedicated entirely to this material.
