In only a few weeks’ time, K 2016 – the biggest and most important trade fair in the world for the plastics and rubber industry – will be opening. More than 200,000 visitors from all over the world are expected to attend this mega-event in Düsseldorf. Preparations are still in full swing and some of the stands still have to be set up. What is currently being created in the Messe Düsseldorf halls sets new standards. In the meantime, the Messe Düsseldorf exhibition site resembles a huge production facility that is equipped with the latest industry technology and provides an insight into what the future holds. Hundreds of people commissioned by Messe Düsseldorf alone as well as thousands of the exhibitors’ employees are doing everything they can to make sure that K 2016 is a real highlight and a tremendous success.

We from k-online have decided to give the final days before the trade fair starts somewhat more intensive coverage. Under our heading “Topic of the Month”, we will with immediate effect be focussing our attention at regular intervals to people and events in the context and background of K 2016; it will therefore be worthwhile taking a look at this part of our website quite often. 

We will be pinpointing what is necessary at the technical and logistic level to make a trade fair like K 2016 possible, which presents entire production processes exactly the way they are in practice. We will be revealing how K 2016 will manage to be an outstanding experience – not just technologically but in other ways too – for more than 200,000 people from many different cultural and religious backgrounds. 

We will be spotlighting people who pull the strings behind the scenes so that everything goes smoothly and so that you can experience and enjoy your visit to the trade fair to the full. It goes without saying that we will also be featuring K 2016 as such – or, more precisely, some of the highlights of the trade fair that you should perhaps plan to include in your visit to Düsseldorf. 

We would like to begin today with a special show organised by Plastics Europe Germany, one of Messe Düsseldorf’s partners, which is drawing particular attention to the motto “Plastics shape the future” at K 2016. The topics covered in connection with this motto will be varying from day to day. If you are particularly interested in any of these subjects, you now have an opportunity to plan your visit to the fair accordingly in good time. 

So let’s get started now:

In tune with the times: “Plastics shape the future”
