Following the outstanding and impressive results gained from the Bioplastics & Degradable Plastics Zone and Rubber Machinery & Equipment Zone in CHINAPLAS 2011, the show organizer will continue to cradle these two zones in the 26th International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries (CHINAPLAS 2012), which will be held on April 18-21, 2012 at Shanghai New International Expo Centre, PR China. Another important return is the Korean Pavilion, which breaks the record of the number of pavilions kept for years to 12.
The newly-named Bioplastics Zone will be the second year established in CHINAPLAS 2012, expecting more than 40% increase in the area. With the growing global concern on green manufacturing, bioplastics is inevitably the focus in the plastics industry, with enormous potential in the market. As the international platform for advanced technology in the plastics and rubber industries, CHINAPLAS 2012 will introduce the world's leading bioplastics suppliers and their products like PLA, PHA, PBS, PPC, PCL, PVA, TPS, PA and PTT. The renowned exhibitors include Cardia, Danisco, Ecomann, Esun, Hisun, Kingfa, Mirel Plastics, NatureWorks, Nuvia, etc.
Highlighting advanced technology and latest development on bioplastics, the 4th International Conference on Bioplastics and the Applications will be held concurrently with CHINAPLAS 2012. Like the last edition held in 2011, speakers from the leading bioplastics suppliers will be invited. Overseas and Chinese plastics associations will continue to support the conference.
As the relaunch of Rubber Machinery & Equipment Zone in 2011 received overwhelming response, the organizer will continue this zone next year. It is expected the size of the zone will be doubled in 2012. Numerous exhibitors have confirmed their participation, such as Tung Yu, Desma, Yang Ming, Double Elephant, Hengwei, Ningbo Chap, Shanghai Deren, Yuyao Huacheng, etc. Exhibits at the zone will include rubber machineries, rubber processing equipment, testing equipment, die & mould for products like rubber conveyor belt, rubber hose, medical rubber products, daily rubber products, rubber sealing products, automotive rubber products, etc. A Rubber Suppliers Guide will be tailor-made for visitors to facilitate their search.
Another highlight of the show is the return of Korean Pavilion, contributing the breakthrough of the number of pavilions to 12. The pavilion last appeared in CHINAPLAS 2009. With the tremendous support of Korea Petrochemical Industry Association, Korean Pavilion will again demonstrate its presence in CHINAPLAS next year and numerous Korean companies will showcase their flagship products. In the first half year of 2011, Korea is one of the top 10 importing countries / regions of plastics machines for China. The show organizer believes that the return of Korean Pavilion will be welcomed by the visitors. Located at Hall N4 of the Expo Centre, the Korean Pavilion can be easily accessed by going through Entrance Hall 3.
Staging its 26th edition, CHINAPLAS 2012 will reach an exhibition area of 200,000 sqm and occupy all 17 halls at Shanghai New International Expo Centre and halls extending at the Central Square. More than 2,600 exhibitors from 35 countries and regions and over 100,000 visitors from 140 countries will get together in this vast professional plastics and rubber event.
