Why Your Visit Is Worth It

One of the defining features of K MESSE is just how massive of an event it is. You do not have numbers as big as these anywhere else in the speciality field of plastics, polymers, and rubber. It is the perfect opportunity to leverage any social interaction for brand recognition and partnerships. Here are the statistics from the last edition:

  • 3200+ international exhibitors from 61 showcased at the event;
  • 232,000+ international trade visitors made the trip;
  • 173,000+ square metres of exhibition space used.

Industry Relevance

Proudly named as the world’s largest trade for plastics and rubber, K MESSE is also among the longest-running events in the world, with the first edition held in 1953. Back then, the exhibitors numbered just 270 – a long way from its current size and program. Editions are spaced out every three years and always held in Düsseldorf. K MESSE presents the full value chain under one roof as product categories include machines and equipment for the plastics and rubber industry, raw materials and auxiliaries, semi-finished products and technical parts made of plastic and rubber. With the process chain showcased in such detail, it is impossible not to meet with buyers and other manufacturers that can strengthen your positions on the global market. The trade fair is home to decision-makers.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

K MESSE is a study on how to broaden scope and inclusivity. It has been a continuous process, with international trade visitors in 1972 making up only 24% of all visitors at the trade fair. This has significantly changed over the years to reach 71% by the edition in 2016. The place of origin for most visitors is Europe, with Asia and North America following closely. In terms of professional background, you have raw material producers, mechanical engineers and manufacturers of semi-finished products and technical parts.
