CHINAPLAS 2016 Reaches 30th Edition
To celebrate the 30th edition of CHINAPLAS, apart from more show attractions at the fairground, a series of celebration activities will be rolled out soon and will last until the next year.
CHINAPLAS 2016 is expected to receive 3,200 exhibitors and some 140,000 professional buyers in the exhibition area of over 240,000sqm.
“The “Automation Technology Zone”, “Composite & High Performance Materials Zone” and “Recycling Technology Zone” are new to the coming show in Shanghai.

CHINAPLAS, recognized as Asia’s No. 1 & world’s No.2 plastics and rubber trade fair by the industry, will hold its 30th edition in 2016. To celebrate the reach of the milestone, there will be more attractions and celebration activities at the show for all to join!

 Looking back, when CHINAPLAS was held for the first time in Beijing in 1983, the exhibition area was only 2,000sqm, and 90% of the exhibitors were from overseas. At that time, the production technology in China was still at a very low level, CHINAPLAS visitors mainly came to learn the advanced technologies from overseas countries. Today, China has become a big manufacturing country with strong production ability, and is exporting the most plastics and rubber machineries in recent years. In the past three decades, CHINAPLAS has been moving forward together with the China market, and has developed into a platform for the showcase of both overseas technologies and Chinese machineries for export. Its international nature attracts overseas visitors from more than 150 countries and regions, which accounts for nearly 30% of the show’s visitors. CHINAPLAS will continue to keep abreast of the trends in the dynamic environment, and lead the industry to cope with the changing world.

 Greenovation for a Smart Future
Like other manufacturing industries in China, plastics and rubber industries are facing transformation to meet the new era of intelligent production. The world’s leading manufacturing countries have launched national strategic plans to meet the challenges in the new era and to strengthen their industrial competitiveness. Examples include “Industry 4.0” of Germany, “Advanced Manufacturing Partnership” of USA, and “New Robot Strategy” of Japan. China also launched the “Made in China 2025” strategic plan recently to boost its industrial growth, with the aim to comprehensively upgrade Chinese manufacturing industries. It is not hard to find that intelligent manufacturing plays a vital part in all of these national plans in adapting to new market environment. CHINAPLAS as a leading plastics and rubber trade fair always moves ahead together with the industry. The new show theme “Greenovation for a Smart Future” signifies that the show content next year will focus on green and innovative technologies, as well as intelligent manufacturing solutions in response to the development of the industry. With more new and high-end technology on display, the show can better support enterprises to explore business opportunities.

 The biggest ever with more attractions
The 30th CHINAPLAS will be held from 25 to 28 April, 2016 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, PR China, with an exhibition area over 240,000sqm, and more than 3,200 exhibitors are expected. The show is supported by a number of country and region pavilions, including Austrian, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Swiss, Taiwanese, and USA Pavilions. With broader range of exhibits, the number of theme zones will rise to sixteen, among which the “Automation Technology Zone”, “Composite & High Performance Materials Zone” and “Recycling Technology Zone” are all new to the coming show in Shanghai. Intelligent production lines and systems, industrial robots, high performance materials, composite materials, the latest and most complete recycling solutions as well as other plastics and rubber technology breakthroughs will be showcased under one roof.
