Messe Düsseldorf Asia announced that T-Plas, an international trade fair for the plastics and rubber industries, will now be moved to 9 – 12 February 2022 at BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand. The exhibition was originally scheduled for September 2021. As one of the region’s leading trade fairs for the co-related plastics and rubber industries, T-Plas will now be strategically-held alongside several other exhibitions under the Messe Düsseldorf Asia umbrella, including; Pack Print International, Medical Fair Thailand, wire and Tube Southeast Asia, and the inaugural editions of CorruTec Asia, Gifa and Metec Southeast Asia.
According to the organiser, with further easing of travel restrictions and continued successful vaccine deployments worldwide, the February 2022 dates will provide a more optimistic backdrop for companies to do business safely, effectively and successfully.
“As an international trade fair in the region for the plastics and rubber sectors, having assessed the current landscape, shifting T-Plas to next year was deemed the most responsible decision in view of the ongoing travel restrictions and varying quarantine requirements for different countries. Following close consultation with industry associations, and together with our representative office in Thailand who have been closely monitoring the pandemic developments in Thailand, moving the trade fair to next year would be in the best interest of exhibitors and visitors,” said Gernot Ringling, Managing Director, Messe Düsseldorf Asia.
Lee Ai Ling, Senior Project Manager, Messe Düsseldorf Asia added: “Though a difficult but necessary decision, the health and safety of all stakeholders takes priority. We would like to thank all our partners and exhibitors from all over the world who have stood by the trade fair as we make these difficult and time sensitive decisions, and appreciate their continued support with the new dates. We are taking immediate steps to provide all parties with the required support necessary, and look forward to welcoming them in February.”
The organiser said the T-Plas team will reach out to all industry partners, confirmed exhibitors and participants regarding event logistics and planning. Participants may also contact email@example.com for immediate assistance.
