Expecting a Significant Increase in Overseas Visitors


China's continuous technological innovation in plastics and rubber machinery and materials has significantly enhanced its competitiveness in overseas markets, facilitating a rapid expansion in overseas presence. This has laid a robust foundation for inviting overseas visitors to CHINAPLAS.


As of early March, China has granted visa-free entry to a number of Asian and European countries, and has also introduced new measures to simplify visa processes. While China is expanding its visa-free access, CHINAPLAS 2024 has also intensified its efforts to attract foreign visitors.


Visitors from over 120 countries and regions have already completed pre-registration, with overseas buyers accounting for approximately 25%. The number of pre-registrations from overseas buyers not only represents an increase of over 175% compared to the same period last year (as of Mar 24), but also sets a new record.


The exhibition is to welcome over 360 visiting groups, with more than 70 coming from overseas, including notable organizations such as Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers, Indonesian Packaging Federation, Vietnam Plastics Association, Pakistan Plastic Manufacturers Association, Thai Auto-Parts Manufacturers Association, The All India Plastics Manufacturers’ Association, 18. Turkish Plastics Industrialists’ Association, Polish Recycling Association, etc. It is projected that this year's exhibition will receive 270,000 local and overseas visitors from around the world.


Witnessing the Return of CHINAPLAS to Shanghai


“CHINAPLAS has evolved and developed hand in hand with China's plastics and rubber industries. Over the years, it fostered and witnessed the global integration and innovative development of the industry," Mr. Chen Guokang, Vice President and Secretary-General, Shanghai Society of Plastic Industry remarked. "We can find the trend-setting highlights for global plastics and rubber industries at each edition of the show. This year's event is set to once again be another highly anticipated gathering within the industry."
