For 25 years, the go-to trade fair where you discover the possibilities for innovative, smart, and sustainable product development and production processes

The Plastics Trade Fair is the largest trade fair in the Benelux focusing on plastics and rubber. Here, you discover the possibilities for innovative, smart, and sustainable product development and production processes. Thanks to the unique and versatile properties of plastics, you can go in any direction: in color, shape, and weight, but it is also combinable with other materials and applicable in many production techniques. This means that plastics have a significant impact and value on our society. A world without plastics is unthinkable, but the world is also calling for future-proof solutions.

Endless possibilities of plastics

Today, the Plastics Trade Fair has evolved into the go-to plastics and rubber trade fair for the entire Benelux. Here, (technical) professionals, companies, industry associations, education, and science come together annually to make (new) connections and work towards a sustainable future with smart and innovative solutions using plastics and rubber. For 25 editions, the Plastics Trade Fair has thus brought the entire plastics and rubber industry together, still with the same foundational goals.

25 years of Kunststoffenbeurs

"The entire injection molding world under one roof!" That was the slogan of the very first Plastics Trade Fair on September 28 and 29, 1999. The trade fair was established to provide a clear view of the current offerings within the injection molding world, to promote collaborations and networking, and to bring together supply and demand. With 80 exhibitors, 30 speakers, and over 1500 visitors, this first edition was a great success. In the years that followed, the Plastics Trade Fair continued to grow, both in terms of the number of exhibitors, visitors, and the topics covered. For instance, the 2003 edition featured 170 companies on the exhibition floor, and topics such as extrusion, rapid prototyping, software, product development, and materials were quickly added.

Machine Square: 20 exhibitors demonstrate live state-of-the-art technology

On the Machinery Square, 20 international and national exhibitors will demonstrate state-of-the-art technology for the plastics and rubber industry again this year. One theme is high on the agenda here: sustainability, translated concretely into lower CO2 emissions and energy consumption. After all, sustainability is not just about recycling plastics. Reducing energy consumption is also a solution. At the Machine Square, you will therefore discover fine examples of both fully electric and hybrid injection moulding machines, as well as concrete applications and software to control the injection moulding process in a circular way.
