Plast 2018 Announces Growing Numbers

By the second deadline for stand assignment, more than 800 companies have confirmed their participation in Plast 2018 – International Exhibition for the Plastics and Rubber Industries scheduled in Milan from 29 May to 1 June 2018. The organizers have thus recorded a 6% increase in the assigned area with respect to the same deadline for Plast 2015. There has also been the significant increase of +10% in the number of new exhibitors setting up stands at Plast for the first time or else returning after being absent for some time.

The excellent trend in registration for Plast 2018 reflects an equally positive economic situation in the sector, as highlighted by the survey conducted in March by Assocomaplast – the Italian Plastics and Rubber Processing Machinery and Molds Manufacturers’ Association. Indeed, 44% of respondents indicated an increase in orders with respect to both February 2017 and March 2016. This trend may be attributed to the recovery in domestic demand and to ongoing improvement in sales abroad. In 2016, exports increased by 1.7% to approach the 3 billion euro mark, establishing a new all-time record. “While erring on the side of caution,” states Assocomaplast president, Alessandro Grassi, “Italian manufacturers of plastics and rubber processing machinery appear optimistic again in 2017, expecting to see further gains in production and exports in the neighbourhood of two percentage points.”

Companies have until 30 June 2017 to sign up for Plast 2018 and be included in the first group of stand assignments, thus ensuring themselves a place in the hall representing their particular industry or segment. After that date exhibitors will only be admitted if there are any remaining unreserved spaces.
