Interplas 2017, the UK's largest plastics industry exhibition, drew down its curtain on October 1 with an attendance of around 12,000.

The show was opened on September 29 by Alison Gill, Current Master of the Horners Livery Company and Bruce Margetts Managing Director of Bericap, and the recently appointed President of the British Plastics Federation (BPF).

"We are honored to be asked to open Interplas 2017. The BPF has had a long association with Interplas ever since its origins. It is great to see the resurgence of this as the premier show in UK plastics," Margetts said.

The triennial Interplas hosted nearly 500 exhibitors, as well as 40 presentations across two conference stages and other show features.

For the first time, the conference program was delivered across two stages. The Main Stage, in association with British Plastics and Rubber Magazine hosted world-class presentations from Jaguar LandRover, Nissan, KPMG, P&G and the BPF, while Stäubli, Plastribution and NetComposites presented on the brand new Interplas Introducing Stage.

In addition, the Knowledge Pavilion offered attendees the chance to meet industry trade bodies, consultants and service providers to get expert advice on research and development, skills and education, regulation and materials selection, whilst Mediplas@Interplas and Inspex provided specific technology advice on medical and inspection issues.

The new PlastikCity Pavilion presented 20 first time exhibitors to the audience further enhancing the opportunities on the show floor, and the Women in Plastics initiative was also a huge success, according to the organizer, Rapid News Communication Group.

"We are delighted to be hearing such great feedback about the show. When we took over management of the show in 2011 our aims were to return Interplas to form, and I think we can safely say the 2017 edition has done this, we are delighted to be able to serve the British plastics industry with a world class platform from which it can project itself to the global market," said Duncan Wood, CEO of Rapid News Communication Group.

The next edition, Interplas 2020, will take place again in Birmingham, the UK from September 29 to October 1.
