After being postponed twice, British triennial plastics industry event, Interplas (www.interplasuk.com
), was finally held from 28 to 30 September 2021 at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham. Organised by the Rapid News Group (Chester / UK; www.rapidnews.com
), the event featured more than 300 exhibitors demonstrating new technologies, machines and materials, and included 40 presentations on advancing UK plastics and sustainability.
The Advancing UK Plastics stage hosted presentations from Jaguar LandRover, Lloyds Bank, Microban, NHS and the BPF, while Tesco, Innovate UK, WRAP, and PwC were among the speakers presenting on the Sustainability stage.
Charlotte Chambers, conference producer for Interplas, said, There is so much happening within the sector, and we managed to cover all the key issues from post-Brexit regulation to sustainable manufacturing and bioplastics. The delegate feedback was terrific, with some fantastic Q&A sessions at which our expert speakers really excelled.
The next edition of the event is scheduled for 26-28 September 2023 at the same venue.
