K in Düsseldorf is a trend barometer and innovation forum for the global industry. Every three years the latest developments celebrate their debuts here, innovative and pioneering technologies are presented and international networks established. The exhibitors’ ranges at their stands are complemented by K’s special formats. The special show organised by Plastics Europe Deutschland, will also reflect the three focal themes of K 2025. At the Science Campus the latest activities and results of university and science organisations will be presented again – here research and business are dovetailed. Organised by the Plastics and Rubber Machinery Association within the German Machinery and Equipment Manufacturers’ Association (VDMA) a large Circular Economy Forum is planned to feature on the outdoor premises where exhibitors demonstrate the pivotal importance of technology for implementing the circular economy in the plastics industry. A Hotspot on the theme of rubber will be the re-designed Rubberstreet under the auspices of the wdk e.V. (Trade Association of the German Rubber Industry) in Hall 6. Here, exhibitors will be showcasing the innovative operational excellence of rubber and thermoplastic elastomers.
