For the first time, CHINAPLAS 2018 will be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC) in Hongqiao District, Shanghai from April 24-27 next year.

The exhibition area is expected to exceed 320,000 square meters – 30% more exhibition space than that of the 2016 edition of the show in Shanghai. It is expected to host 4,000 exhibitors from around the world, according to the organizer, Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd.

"From 2012 onwards, CHINAPLAS has faced the problem of space shortage," said Ada Leung, General Manager of Adsale. "Previously, when we held the show at the Shanghai New International Expo Center in Pudong, we had used up all the indoor exhibition halls. We even built outdoor temporary exhibition halls, but still couldn't meet the huge demand from our exhibitors."

"By moving to the new venue, NECC, Adsale can fulfill the strong demand for exhibition space immediately. This relocation to the new venue is also good for the long-term development of CHINAPLAS," she continued.

The shape of the NECC is like a blooming "four-leaf clover". With a total construction area of 1.47 million sqm, it is the largest single block building and exhibition complex in the world. There are 400,000sqm of indoor area, which consists of 13 large exhibition halls and three small exhibition halls, as well as conference rooms with different specifications and settings. The central area is a commercial plaza providing catering services.

Opened in 2015, NECC is located in the west of the core business district of Hongqiao, and is closely linked with the Hongqiao International Airport and Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station.

"CHINAPLAS 2018 will not only accommodate more exhibitors, but will also have better management in the set-up of theme zones, country/region pavilions, and concurrent events. We believe that visitors will have a new, high quality visiting experience," Leung said.

Relocating the huge, technology-oriented CHINAPLAS is a particularly challenge for the organizer, who is carefully considering the overall layout, the arrangement of on-site services, the contracting of various, third-party service providers, etc.

Some two years ago, Adsale formed a special team to prepare for this relocation project. This team has done a lot of site visits, and conducted extensive assessments and analyses. "We're lucky to have a very experienced team," said Ms. Leung. "Starting in 1978, Adsale has organized trade shows and become a leader in the trade show industry. We hold about 20 trade shows each year."

The overall theme zone layout will be rearranged, according to Adsale. Extrusion-related technology will be in the eastern part of the NECC, injection molding technology will be in the west, and blow molding technology will occupy the southern part of the complex.

Exhibits of the same category will be arranged in nearby locations, for example, "film technology and plastic packaging machinery" and "injection molding technology and smart manufacturing equipment" etc. And different European pavilions, which were scattered among different halls in the past, will be gathered in Hall 2H at CHINAPLAS 2018.

New 3D Technology Zone and Thermoplastic Elastomers & Rubber Zone

To cater for the demands of customization and small-batch production, with the aim of shortening development cycle time and reducing costs arising from Industry 4.0, CHINAPLAS will set up a new "3D Technology Zone" to group together the vendors and providers of 3D printing (additive manufacturing) technologies.

The new theme zone and the concurrent event "The 3rd Industry 4.0 Conference" will complement each other, providing a comprehensive experience for the enterprises interested in 3D printing technology and "smart manufacturing". Exhibitors that have reserved their exhibit space include Autodesk, Ureal, Cang Ming, dMac, ZWSOFT, and more.

The show is also introducing the "Thermoplastic Elastomers & Rubber Zone" to the "Chemicals & Raw Materials Zone", and is expected to attract about 70 suppliers to showcase the latest development in this field. Exhibitors that have reserved their space include Huntsman, Momentive, SIBUR, Top Polymer, Dawn, Huafon, and so on.
