Plastpol, the plastics and rubber processing trade show that takes place annually in Kielce, Poland, will go ahead this year, the show’s management has decided, following extensive consultation with the industry.
“The expo is a clear signal that the plastics and rubber processing industry and market are ready for a rebound and recovery,” the organisers said.
It will, however, not all be business as usual. As a concession to the ongoing uncertainty regarding further outbreaks of the coronavirus, the length of the show has been shortened by one day. In other words, the show will take place this year 6-8 Oct.
In addition, other precautionary measures will be in place. All participants - exhibitors and attendees - will be asked to wear a mask and to keep their noses and mouths covered at all times. Vending machines selling masks and disinfectants will be on site. Social distancing will be enforced. Frequently touched surfaces will be disinfected on an ongoing basis and automatic disinfection and body temperature measurement booths have been installed. The new devices are now fully operational.
This year marks the 24th edition of the show. As always, it will provide a showcase for the latest developments in the industry and function as a meeting place for networking and new business.
As one of the extremely few physical events out there, the organisers are committed to making this year’s fair, too, a success - which will ‘benefit all of us in the future’.
