PLAST 2023: the challenge is won. Successful edition of the international event dedicated to the plastics and rubber industry
GMF news - World Trade Fair Guide. Turin, September 16, 2023 – Held from 5 to 8 September 2023 at Fiera Milano (Rho), with a net area of 50,000 sqm and 38,000 visitors, PLAST 2023 has been confirmed as a successful event.
A look at the figures
Plast 2023, with its satellite shows Rubber (rubber industry), 3D Plast (3D printing and related), PlastMat (innovative materials) and a wide range of cutting-edge technological solutions on the key subjects of industrial production such as digitalisation and sustainability, was attended by 1,323 exhibitors, 47% of whom were foreigners, a figure that once again confirms the international nature of the event.
The 38,000 visitors who filled the halls were characterised by a considerable international presence, with 26% of the visitors coming from 109 countries. Of these, Europe stood out with 63.89%, Asia with a significant 20.22%, Africa with 7.58%, closely followed by the Americas with 7.56% and Oceania with 0.75%.
Equally important was the international presence of around 300 buyers, coordinated by ICE - Agency for the Promotion Abroad and Internationalisation of Italian Companies. A satisfying result for organisers and exhibitors, which demonstrated that Plast is a solid and attractive event, despite the fact that it did not coincide with The Innovation Alliance, which in 2018, with its integrated system of events, had gathered an audience from the entire capital goods supply chain, from packaging to materials, from meat processing technology to logistics and printing.
