Special Show at K 2013
Plastics move the world!
The K 2013 special show entitled "Kunststoff
bewegt – Plastics move the World” highlighted the
contribution made by plastics to a "life in movement”. The aim here was
to address the direct contribution of plastics to the varied facets of
mobility as well as emotional movement – for instance, by way of art and
design. Future-oriented issues revolving around the major themes of
population growth, energy needs and climate change were also discussed.
The stand opening on 16 October saw Germany’s former Foreign Minister
Joschka Fischer discuss the issue of sustainability.
The show is hosted by the German plastics industry under the aegis of PlasticsEurope Deutschland e.V. and Messe Düsseldorf.

Plastics move our lives in more ways then one, both in the
figurative and the literal sense. About 3,100 exhibitors will document
this enormous potential at the K 2013, the largest international trade
show for plastics and rubber, which starts on 16 October and ends on 23
October in Düsseldorf/Germany. Selected exhibits will also be presented
at a special show with the title "Plastics move the world”. They
illustrate the many improvements already attributed to plastic products
today and their potential contribution to future challenges, e.g. by
protecting global resources in the future.
The special show in hall 6 takes a broad approach to the meaning of
the word "to move”. It includes not merely the direct contributions of
plastics to different areas of mobility, but also emotional aspects,
e.g. their effect on art and design, and their potential for solving
future problems such as demographic growth, increasing energy
consumption and climate change.
The special show will provide interesting information, not just for
exhibitors and specialists visiting the K 2013, but also for a wider
public audience. This well-established event enhances the presentations
given by exhibiting companies as it provides an insight into pioneering,
innovative aspects and promotes the unique position of the K Düsseldorf
as a trend indicator and innovation forum for the entire industry.
The show was hosted by the German plastics industry under the aegis of PlasticsEurope Deutschland e.V. and Messe Düsseldorf.
