Thomas Franken, the project director of K sent his greetings by video, he also shared: "K in Düsseldorf has once again fulfilled highest expectations. It continues to be the most international, complete and innovative trade fair of the global plastics industry. The variety of solutions, machines and products for the transformation towards a circular economy presented at the show was incredible. Last year the circumstances regarding Covid in China were even more restrictive, for example making it more difficult for participants from China to travel to Düsseldorf than all other nations. For this reason, we were very happy about the great response from China. Despite the mentioned difficulties, the exhibition space for Chinese exhibitors has even grown slightly to more than 9,300 sqm. So, we are very proud of this great commitment from the Chinese plastics and rubber industry."
