The VDMA is the conceptual sponsor of the world’s most important trade fair for the plastics industry.
The world is facing major challenges: Climate change must be fought; the environment must be protected, and resources must be conserved. It is also important to make good use of the opportunities offered by digitalisation. The plastics industry has a key role in this process because plastics are ubiquitous in the world. Climate protection, digitalisation and the circular economy are therefore also the three major topics at K 2022, the world’s leading trade fair for the plastics industry.
The initiative "We are plastics” – consisting of the major associations of plastics manufacturers, processors and machinery manufacturers – will be presenting itself for the first time to the international trade public, including the media, at K, the world's leading trade fair for plastics, in Düsseldorf.read more
