CHINAPLAS 2024 will be held from April 23-26, occupying all 15 exhibition halls of the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC) in Hongqiao, Shanghai, China.

In a total exhibition area of over 380,000sqm, an increase of 12% compared with 2018 edition at the same venue, 4,420 renowned exhibitors from around the world will showcase a comprehensive portfolio of up-to-date machinery technologies and material solutions. 

Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd., the organizer of CHINAPLAS, sets up 17 theme zones at the fairgrounds. There will be nine country/region pavilions, namely Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Switzerland, UK, USA, and Taiwan region, which are foreseen to regain their pre-pandemic scale.

China's manufacturing industry is undergoing a remarkable transformation, shifting from its traditional "Made in China" reputation to embracing the concept of “Innovated in China” for gaining competitive advantage in the global market.

In response to the national policies to promote the development of small & medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with specialization, refinement, distinctiveness and novelty, CHINAPLAS 2024 brings together more than 800 Chinese “Shining Niche” companies, facilitating the development of these niche companies.


CHINAPLAS 2024 will be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC) in Shanghai from April 23-26. 

Circular economy and sustainability in the spotlight

As a key strategy for addressing environmental challenges, circular economy revolutionizes the plastics and rubber industries’ approach to production and consumption with transformative solutions for promoting resource efficiency, waste reduction, and recycling.

CHINAPLAS 2024 will offer a wide spectrum of innovative green solutions in three theme zones, including Recycled Plastics Zone, Bioplastics Zone and Recycling Technology Zone. Leading material suppliers and recycling equipment manufacturers will showcase their solutions to support the industries’ sustainable development ambitions. 

Smart manufacturing takes center stage 

Digitalization contributes massively to the transformation in manufacturing. Introducing smart manufacturing brings enormous benefits, including enhanced operational efficiency, improved product quality, and streamlined supply chain management.
