K MESSE Update

The 2025 edition of K Messe has been scheduled to run without any delay from 08.10.2025 to 15.10.2025 at the Messe Düsseldorf in Düsseldorf, Germany. Currently, the venue does not have Covid-19 prevention measures in place due to the removal of the country's pandemic-related restrictions.


The international plastics and rubber trade fair K MESSE have been at the foreground of innovation and groundbreaking advancements in processing and manufacturing. The international exhibition is an opportunity for the professional community to come together and exchange experience and expertise through programming like special shows, discussions, forums, keynote speeches and the VDMA Circular Economy Forum.

K MESSE first entered the scene in 1953 and has acted as one of the biggest and most important procurement platforms for the industry on a global scale. Trade visitors gain access to the full value chain – rubber and plastic raw materials, additives, processing technologies, thermoplastics, and machinery for welding and processing.


K MESSE arrives once only every three years and editions usually run the course of eight days in total, sometime in October. The city – Düsseldorf, Germany. The international trade fair is the brainchild of Messe Düsseldorf, which is also the host venue, and admission is given to only trade visitors. Working hours are from 10:00 am until 18:30 pm for each and every day, though changes may be introduced as the official program is finalised.

If you are to commute to Düsseldorf, you have several options. The easiest is to get to it by car and there are sufficient parking spaces. There is also a tram (U78 and U79) and bus (722) in addition to shuttle services from the airport.

What Are People Saying?

“Milliken’s booth was a major hit at K 2019, with thousands of visitors from across the globe drawn to our circular economy solutions. Our team demonstrated the various ways in which our advanced plastics additives and colourants are helping to make the reuse and recycling of plastics possible,” - Veerle De Wolf, Marketing Communication Manager EMEA, Milliken;

“We are very satisfied with the outcome of the trade fair. We had surprisingly many visitors from a great number of countries. Alongside Germany, Austria, Turkey, India, Poland, Italy, France, and Brazil were well represented,” - Michael Wittmann, Wittmann Group General Manager

“Saving resources through sustainable production, recycling, and quick colour changes were our central themes at the K trade fair and will be beyond. We are pleased with the positive response across the board and the avid interest taken in our sustainable demo bottle of foamed PCR and bio-based polythene, to name a bit too,” - Christian Kirchbaumer Head of Marketing Communications, Kautex Group

Audience & Statistics

K MESSE delivers the promise of growth, which can be seen in the record-breaking turnout during this last edition. The number of exhibitors grew to over 3300 and the audience swelled to the truly impressive 224,000 international trade visitors from 165 countries. There is real interest in the K MESSE brand time and time.

What certainly will appeal to exhibitors is the fact that roughly 76% of all visitors have decision-making capabilities, as they occupy chiefly top management positions. This certainly widens the pool of potential buyers who you might bring to your booth. Roughly 60% of all visitors come from Europe, then followed by 25% from Asia and 13% from America.

A look into the professional background of visitors reveals that everyone involved alongside the value chain makes it a point to visit – chemical industry, vehicle construction, electronics, sports and leisure, ICT, packaging and distribution, medical technology and photovoltaics.
