Professionals in the plastics and rubber industry can look forward to a competitive support program and an assortment of innovative products at CHINAPLAS. The international trade show currently sits as the second largest event for plastics and rubber in the world, which makes it essential for manufacturers and distributors to meet and close deals. The very first edition was held in 1983 and since then has been growing fast. Organisers expect for attendance to continue rising. As far as products go, trade visitors have the full value chain at their disposal. We’re talking plastic parts, plastic processing machines, raw materials, plastic products, extrusion lines, injection molding machines, rubber and rubber machinery. CHINAPLAS is where supply meets demand on a global scale and exhibitors have a chance to penetrate the Asian markets. The trade show is also an “UFI Approved Event”. The status is given by UFI, The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry.


CHINAPLAS is an annual event that’s organised by Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd. in close partnership with Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. and with support from the European Committee of Machinery Manufacturers for the Plastics and Rubber Industries (EUROMAP). The trade show typically takes place in April and runs for a total of four days. Editions are held in rotation between Shenzhen and Shanghai, China. Both exhibition centres are well located and have connections to public transport. The National Exhibition & Convention Center (NECC) located in Shanghai is serviced by several train and metro lines that connect you to the city centre, the airport and other residential areas so you have a quick commute on your hands. There are also many bus lines passing by NECC.
