The world's attention-grabbing plastics and rubber event, CHINAPLAS 2012 (The 26th International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries) will stage its 26th edition at Shanghai New International Expo Centre, PR China from April 18-21, 2012.
As Asia's No. 1 and the world's No. 2 plastics and rubber trade fair, CHINAPLAS' scale keeps on growing year by year, and it has become an effective platform for buyers from all around the world to purchase chemicals, raw materials and a variety of plastics and rubber machines.
CHINAPLAS 2012 will attract over 2,600 exhibitors from 35 countries and regions, of which suppliers of chemicals & raw materials and machines account for 30% and 70% respectively. For many years, Japan has been one of the countries which suppliers and buyers take active role in participating in this mega show. In the coming edition, Japanese chemical suppliers, such as Idemitsu Chemicals, Mitsubishi Chemical, Teijin Kasei, Toray Plastics, UBE Industries, etc. and machine suppliers, such as Kawata, Matsui, Sumitomo, Toyo, Yushin, etc., will offer their staunch support to the show again. In addition, the organizer of CHINAPLAS confirmed that the Japanese pavilion will continue to demonstrate its presence at the show. Innovative materials and machines, which can be applied in different sectors, such as automotive, packaging, E&E, IT and telecommunications, building & construction, etc. will be displayed on-site.
As for last edition held in May 2011, over 94,000 visitors was recorded, of which over 20% came from 138 overseas countries and regions with India, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Iran, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and Turkey as the top 10 origins. The renowned visitors from Japan included Bando, Daikin, Elastomix, Hitachi, Hokushin Kasei, Inabata, Iris Ohyama, Katecs, Manac, Mitsubishi, Nippon Pigment, Panasonic, Seiki, Toho Tenax, Toshiba, Zeon and Yamaguchi Electric, etc.
As the scale of CHINAPLAS 2012 is expected to reach a new height, occupying an exhibition area of over 200,000sqm, the organizer further estimates the show will attract more than 100 groups of buyer delegations and 100,000+ trade visitors from all around the world.
Ms. Ada Leung, Assistant General Manager of Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd, organizer of CHINAPLAS, said, “China is currently the largest producing country of plastics machines in the world. In 2010, the top ten export markets of plastics machines were Brazil, Iran, Turkey, Indian, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Russia and Japan, underlining that China-made machines, with good quality and competitive price, will be one of the attractions for overseas buyers. Most of the overseas buyers at CHINAPLAS were greatly impressed by the well mixture of both overseas and Chinese exhibits, which other shows could hardly compare. For Japanese buyers, they can view not only the Chinese exhibits, but also exhibits from the western countries, such as Italy, Germany, France, United Kingdom, USA, etc. What's more, a series of concurrent event will be held as well. It is worth mentioning that the conference, namely China Plastics in Automotive, will stage its 2nd edition where the future global trend of automotive manufacturing will be unveiled. As Japan is one of the major car manufacturing countries in the world, we believe that both the exhibits and concurrent events of CHINAPLAS 2012 are well-matched with the interest of Japanese buyers.”
To enhance the show's overseas exposure and have close contact with the overseas buyers, CHINAPLAS has launched a series of overseas promotion campaigns through various channels, such as media, travel agents, industrial seminars, trade fairs, etc. Since August this year, CHINAPLAS has been participating in various trade fairs including TIPREX 2011, KOPLAS 2011, Plasteurasia 2011, MPLAS 2011, Interplastica 2012, Plastindia 2012, Plastics Vietnam and Indoplas 2012.
