One of the most established international plastic and rubber trade shows in China, the 17th International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries (Chinaplas 2003) opens today at the China International Exhibition Centre, Beijing.
The four-day show is an effective platform for almost 700 exhibitors and over 50,000 visitors to establish direct connections and explore business opportunities.
Organized by Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd, and co-organized by the China Plastics Processing Industry Association and China International Exhibition Corporation, Chinaplas 2003 is exclusively sponsored by the European Committee of Machinery Manufacturers for the Plastics & Rubber Industries (EUROMAP) in China.
Of the 700 exhibitors, 70 per cent are overseas suppliers from 23 countries and regions.
Official and group pavilions from Austria, Canada, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, the United States and Taiwan Province show their prominent presence at the fairground.
Their participation has entrenched Chinaplas 2003 as a genuine international plastics and rubber trade show in China and Asia-Pacific Region.
Occupying an exhibition area of 40,000 square metres, Chinaplas 2003 is the largest ever edition since its inception in 1983.
At the show, over 300 sets of advanced machinery, including plastic processing machines, molding, auxiliary machines, testing and control equipment, and rubber processing equipment are displayed.
To facilitate more effective business communication for specific industries, six product theme zones are set up, namely Auxiliary & Testing Equipment, Chemicals and Raw Materials, Die & Mould, Drinktec & Plastic Packaging, Rubber Equipment and Semi-finished Product.
Held concurrently with Chinaplas 2003 are a number of symposiums which serve as an effective channel for trade professionals to exchange the latest technology know-how and information.
