PLAST 2018 recorded a total of some 1,500 exhibitors in 55,000 square metres of exhibition space.

The 18th PLAST-International Exhibition for the Plastics and Rubber Industries, which took place at the Fiera Milano fairgrounds in Rho-Pero from 29 May to 1 June 2018, was concluded with a strongly positive outcome.

PLAST 2018 recorded a total of some 1,500 exhibitors in 55,000 square metres of exhibition space, with significant growth of over 20% in foreign participants, affirming the international stature of the exhibition. One example of this was the significant expansion of the Chinese and Iranian collectives.

This year, there were 63,000 visitors at the fairgrounds. Foreign visitors coming from 117 countries, with Spain, France, and Germany being the most represented, made up 27.5% of the total.

Some 30 official delegations were welcomed to the fair. They expressed strong admiration bordering on astonishment in interviews by the organizational office for the magnitude and completeness of the PLAST 2018 technology showcase, and for the satellite fairs RUBBER, 3D PLAST, and PLAST-MAT that were part of The Innovation Alliance.

The core of the exhibition was machinery, equipment and moulds for plastics and rubber processing, with over 3,500 units on display. Industry 4.0 technology was also well represented and covered in many conferences of this preeminent trade fair.

Alessandro Grassi, President of AMAPLAST and the commercial company PROMAPLAST srl. stated that the organizational office was satisfied with the outcome of the exhibition for two main reasons.

“First of all, together with the organizers of the other four exhibitions (IPACK-IMA, MEAT-TECH, PRINT4ALL, INTRALOGISTICA ITALIA) - the trade-fair project known as The Innovation Alliance has proved to be a winning choice: the more than 150,000 operators who participated were treated to a comprehensive range of plastics and rubber technology without precedent,” said Alessandro Grassi. 

“A great source of pride for us was the great satisfaction of the exhibitors, who enjoyed the significant attendance by qualified operators and an impressive number of contracts signed directly at the fair. The expectations - already quite ambitious - ended up being outstripped by reality, he emphasized.
