Peter Königsreuther works as a journalist for "MM MaschinenMarkt". The magazine will celebrate its 125th birthday next year and is commited to quality and reliable information. "About plastics is much reported what is wrong, when we think of some media. To clarify should be the most important thing for journalists and companies." Mr. Königsreuther studied polymer technic and worked several years in the industry before he decided to work as a journalist. "To lead objective discussions is getting more and more relevant, here and at K, the people are open minded."

Already after a few hours Farkass Gábor is enthusiastic about K Preview, because of the presentations and the organization. He comes from Hungary and writes for the magazine "polmerek". He also represents HUNGARIAN PLASTICS ASSOCIATION, which helps companies to showcase themselves at K at one common exhibition stand. "Finding the right balance between outcome, materials, innovations and environment is the biggest challenge we have."
