Global Marketplace for Innovations

K is the performance barometer for the entire industry and its global marketplace for innovations. For eight days, the “Who’s Who” of the entire plastics and rubber world will meet here to:

  • Demonstrate the industry’s capabilities
  • Discuss current trends and
  • Set the course for the future

K 2019 underscores its special position not only through its popularity with the global industry but also by addressing the current challenges of our era and especially of its sector, first and foremost in regard to “plastics for sustainable development” and the “circular economy”. These not only will be among the hot topics touched on at the exhibitors’ stands at the upcoming K but will also be covered comprehensively in the supporting program.

Plastics Shape the Future – Addressing Plastics Pollution

The special exhibition “Plastics Shape the Future” will address packaging waste, marine litter and climate change as well as resource conservation, energy efficiency and recycling. “Plastics Shape the Future” will not only offer an international information and networking platform but will also involve politics and socially relevant groups to a greater extend with keynote speeches and speed talks.

Sustainability and Recycling Management

The Science Campus of K 2019 stands for the dialogue between science and industry, in which sustainability and recycling management will also be intensively examined. In addition, the joint participation of the VDMA (German Engineering Federation) and its member companies will this time also focus on the topic of circular economy.
