Exhibition introduction

The Friedrichshafen International Plastics Fair in Germany began in 1981 and began to showcase its professional exhibition capabilities. By providing exhibitors with professional new trade links and credits, it became an internationally renowned exhibition in the field. . The 26th German Plastics Exhibition will be held from October 16th to 20th, 2018. Many Chinese companies are worried about not being able to participate in the K show. They hope to expand their share of the European market by participating in the exhibition. However, due to the limited number of booths open to China in the K show, many exhibitors can only “look at the market and sigh”. Obsessively waiting for the K show, but did not realize that “waiting may miss the opportunity”, another way is a good strategy. The special features of the Fakuma exhibition are not only because of its large scale, but also because its convening has spawned new incentives and brought new business opportunities to the industry. The exhibition venue, Friedrichshafen, is the heart of the European plastics industry, and many large German industrial companies have set up factories in Friedrichshafen. Friedrichshafen, located at the junction of Switzerland, Austria and Germany, makes Fakuma an ideal venue for exhibitions. In general, the Friedrichshafen International Plastics Fair in Germany features a wide range of items, including processing machinery and suitable peripherals, raw materials and application software, as well as automated methods, control technology and more.
