Scheduled to hold in Germany in October this year, representative of the organisation in Nigeria, Trade Fair Services Limited, told The Guardian that necessary arrangements are being put in place to assist stakeholders in the country to attend the event.
Stating that Nigeria has huge potential to boost its plastics and rubber sector, spokesperson for the organisation, Akigbe Itua said: “Apart from showcasing latest innovations and products, K-2016 will educate participants on contemporary topics, including future perspectives and global challenges; resource efficiency; new materials; additives and fillers for rubbers and plastics, controlled radical polymerization, function and self-reinforcing polymers; digitalisation of the value Chain; lightweight construction and others.
He noted that the event would focus on raw materials, auxiliaries, semi-finished products, technical parts and reinforced plastics as well as machinery and equipment for the plastics and rubber industry.
The organisation said: “Dwindling resources, climate change, increasing demand for energy and the growing global pollution are just some of the challenges awaiting solution. Plastics and rubber help us to solve the problems of tomorrow and actively shape the future.”
Itua stated that the event is designed for experts, including those in plastic goods manufacturing, rubber production and processing, machinery and plant manufacturing, packaging and distribution, automotive, aviation aerospace, chemical industry, electrical engineering and electronics, construction, architecture and interior design among others.

K 2016 will only not surpass these figures but present visitors with the highest innovation density worldwide”, Itua added.
