The rubber and plastic industry's crucial business event

In Europe, PLAST is the definitive business platform for decision makers and manufacturers in the plastics and rubber industry. The international trade show has been running since 1960. Every new edition has delivered groundbreaking new technologies and revealed new market trends. The rubber and plastics industry have wide applications, which is why PLAST is a multi-sector event with importance for packaging, building and construction, mobility and transport, healthcare, sport and leisure, electronics, agriculture, and energy. It’s the ideal place to launch products and meet with influential buyers. Exhibitors have much to gain from better visibility to higher sales leads. The product portfolio is one of the richest out there. Trade visitors have access to every link in the processing line including molds and dies, laboratory control and test equipment, synthesizing, modelling software, rapid prototyping, ancillary equipment for plastics and rubber processing, and additive manufacturing.

The main organiser of PLAST is PROMAPLAST srl. Admission is given only to professional visitors. Working hours have been set for 09:30 in the morning until 18:00 in the afternoon for all days, but be sure to check with the event’s site once the edition is closer on the horizon. Let us discuss commuting to Fiera Milano. The exhibition centre is well-connected to public transport and visitors have many options. If you’re not renting a car for the duration of your stay, the easiest way to arrive at the grounds is via the Underground ATM Red Line M1. If the metro is inconvenient, there are other options such as the S5, S6 and S11 bus lines.

  • Better access to foreign markets. PLAST has been continually expanding and in 2018, it registered a rise in foreign visitors, who numbered 27.5% of the total visitor numbers.
  • Interest from all related industries thanks to the membership of PLAST in The Innovation Alliance, which also includes IPACK-IMA, MEAT-TECH, INTRALOGISTICA ITALIA and PRINT4ALL.
  • An incredible support program, which organises technical seminars and conferences with top industry experts at the forefront. Whatever your personal field and sector is, there’s going to be someone giving their know-how and breaking down new technologies.
  • Art. Yes, PLAST also explores the applications of plastics and rubber as artistic mediums. Artists from all over the continent gather in the “Art & Plastics” area and show just how versatile these materials really are.

PLAST is brought to you thanks to the generous support of ASSOCOMAPLAST and EUROMAP. This collaboration is part of the reason the trade show has been as successful. The trade show is the beating heart of the Italian industry and manufacture. Most foreign nationals come from Spain and France, followed by other European countries like Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Greece, and Portugal. PLAST is also now growing in popularity for professionals in China and Iran.
