The Gulf States are not only top producers and exporters of petrochemical products but also suppliers of first-class plastics products. The robust economic conditions in the region ensure an excellent investment climate, which also results in increased demand for plastics.
The latest edition of ArabPlast, held in November 2021 and still impaired by the pandemic, was a resounding success, counting 217 exhibitors and more than 11,200 visitors from 129 countries.
ArabPlast's success is based on Messe Düsseldorf’s good relations established with the companies of the global plastics and rubber industry. Messe Düsseldorf owes its expertise especially to its role as organiser of K in Düsseldorf. Just recently in October 2022 at its 70th anniversary, K, which is held every three years, succeeded in bringing together 3,020 exhibitors from 59 nations with more than 177,000 visitors from all over the world.
"With the support of our international partner, Messe Düsseldorf, the organiser of the world's No. 1 trade fair for plastics and rubber, K, ArabPlast developed into the leading event in the Middle East," says Nadhal Mohamed, General Manager, Al Fajer Information & Services.
ArabPlast is part of the Global Gate service brand, which bundles Messe Düsseldorf's worldwide range of international platforms for the plastics and rubber industry. With its own events and strategic alliances with leading regional trade fairs for the plastics and rubber industry - such as ArabPlast - Messe Düsseldorf offers the industry tailor-made business platforms in relevant growth markets.
