In light of the ongoing pandemic and uncertainties regarding the timeline and methods of the vaccination campaign, Promaplast, the organizer of PLAST-International Exhibition for Plastics and Rubber Industries, has decided to postpone the event to a future date to be determined, but certainly after the end of 2021. Originially triennial PLAST-International Exhibition for the Plastics and Rubber Industries, had been scheduled to take place from 22 to 25 June 2021 at the FieraMilano Fairgrounds in Rho, Italy. The new dates will be determined in the coming weeks.
The current situation and the impossibility of envisaging future options with any reasonable degree of confidence make it impossible to adequately plan and organize an international event of the stature of PLAST, representing a showcase for complex technologies and systems. Both the organizers and the participants require a significant amount of time to plan the event and this cannot be guaranteed at present.
The difficult decision to postpone has been taken regretfully but responsibly, the prime objective being to ensure the safety of all parties involved. The organizers look forward to being able to schedule the next PLAST under the best conditions possible and with in-person attendance.
The previous edition of the trade fair took place in Milan from 29 May to 1 June 2018. It featured 1,510 exhibitors from 55 countries, occupied a net area of 55,000 m² in six halls of Fiera Milano in Rho-Pero, and drew in 63,000 visitors from 117 countries.
