Live discussions, insights, best practices and future strategies
All this is combined in the new K-Talk!
The new webtalk format of K 2022, The World's No. 1 Trade Fair for Plastics and Rubber, takes a close look at the application areas of plastics, highlights technological innovations and discusses key challenges facing the industry. The visions and different perspectives of the discussion participants are intended to inspire, provide orientation and encourage international exchange.
Participation is free of charge. Active exchange is expressly desired, so you can submit questions throughout the talk via the chat function.
The plastics and rubber industry is facing major challenges. It is working very hard on forward-looking solutions for circular economy and climate protection as well as digitalisation for even more intelligent, efficient production units. There is a real sense of optimism in the industry in this regard. On the other hand, the difficult global economic situation and rising energy and raw material prices are causing uncertainty and tension.
In the last K-Talk shortly before the start of K 2022, Guido Marschall will discuss the current situation in the industry with his guests, address its hot topics and give an outlook on what awaits us at K in Düsseldorf.
