2012: Plastics trade fair in Russia offers excellent opportunities for export-oriented companies

Right at the beginning of 2012, there is a trade fair marked in the calendar of the international plastics and rubber industry, Interplastica, which takes place from 24th to 27th January in Moscow, is regarded as the leading platform for plastic and rubber technology in Russia. The consumption of plastic in Russia still holds considerable potential for growth. Above all in the areas of packaging and medical technology, production capacities are being expanded and modernised across the country. The backlog demand in the construction and infrastructure sector is immense, and it is just as great in the consumer goods sector.

For many years now, export-oriented exhibitors have appreciated Interplastica as the place to meet top decision-makers from the Russian plastics and rubber industry. Specialists from every part of the Russian Federation come to Moscow to find out about the latest technologies and the high-quality product range of the international suppliers. For the 15th event on the Expocentre fairgrounds, companies from about 30 countries will be presenting their products and services. Once again, the highest number of non-Russian participants originates in Germany and Italy, however Austria, France, Portugal and China are also well represented. The presentation by the exhibitors will be complemented by a one-day seminar for professional visitors, which deals with the current trends in the industry.

The positive synergies with UPAKOVKA, Russia's leading trade fair for the packaging industry, have been demonstrated over many years now. Altogether more than 800 exhibitors are expected to attend the trade fair duo. The two events will occupy a net exhibition space of more than 16,000 square metres.
