K bridges all the differences, creates a feeling of togetherness and community of interest in innovative materials and how they are made and processed. From 19 to 26 October 2016, Düsseldorf will be hosting the world, at K – the leading global trade fair for plastics and rubber. You too will receive a warm welcome there.

Finger on the pulse

Special show 2013
It is hard to imagine any aspect of our daily lives where plastics are not ever-present or at least play a major or minor role. This state of affairs is refl ected in the special show “Plastics shape the future” at K 2016. In order to cover as many of the really hot topics as broadly as possible, the organisers of the K special show, headed by PlasticsEurope Deutschland, have put together a tight programme with a different agenda from day to day.

Welcome to the future

What might sound incredible is actually already being implemented in places today. All under the theme of Industry 4.0 or Plastics Industry 4.0. The German Engineering Federation (VDMA), a partner of Messe Düsseldorf, has made it its business to inform visitors to K 2016 on all aspects of this 4th industrial revolution and the consequences it will have for the industry.

The VDMA TV Pavilion, situated in the openair space opposite Hall 16 of the Messe Düsseldorf exhibition centre, will be the venue for daily talks and discussions with international experts from business, academia and trade associations, covering all the hot topics of digitalisation. Everyone can find out more about the future and actively help to shape it. K offers plenty of opportunity to do so.

At K 2016 some 3,200 exhibitors from all over the world will be presenting their product and service portfolios. They will also be giving insights into what kinds of careers are possible. In collaboration with Messe Düsseldorf, the industry – which offers scope for a vast variety of interests and abilities – has launched an educational initiative (kai), allowing people to experience plastics live.
