Almost 43,000 visitors come to COLOMBIAPLAST in the Colombian capital to find out about the plastics and petrochemicals industry - the latter accounts for 15 percent of the GPD in Colombia and is thus an important branch of the country's economy. In the Corferias halls, interested visitors can obtain information and make new contacts from exhibitors from 172 nations on 4,900 square metres. An extra area will also be provided for networking so that companies can connect with each other and thus increase the competitiveness of the industry in the region.
In addition to networking, technology and techniques are of course of central interest to the industry. Here, COLOMBIAPLAST offers a detailed overview of all segments. The main segments are:
- Raw materials
- Machinery and equipment
- Technical parts
- Recycling and Circular Economy Solutions
- Instrumentation and process control
- Research and development
In Bogota, however, the focus will not only be on the status quo of the industry, but also on the future: COLOMABIAPLAST 2022 will be complemented by an academic programme presenting trends in innovation, productivity and efficiency as well as the most important technical and technological challenges for the industry – always with a view to the sustainability of the industry.
Erhard Wienkamp explains, "COLOMBIAPLAST is not only a unique opportunity to learn about the plastics industry specifically in the Latin American market, but also the ideal "warm-up" for the industry's leading trade fair, K 2022 in Düsseldorf, which takes place three weeks later."
