European Plastics News takes a look at the highlights that will be on show at this week’s trade show in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
This year’s Fakuma, the 22nd, will see the usual roll-out of new machines, technologies and materials throughout the Friedrichshafen Exhibition Centre’s 12 huge halls, complete with exhibiting space getting on for one million square feet.
Organisers are expecting around 1,700 exhibitors from 35 countries at this year’s event, the majority of whom – 1,115 at the last count – hail from Germany, with Austrian and Swiss firms the next largest countries represented.
Following the events at Fakuma closely, European Plastics News has compiled two reports, which can be seen here and here, focusing on the major exhibitors at the show.
Readers should keep an eye on the website during the show itself as journalists from European Plastics News will be at Fakuma reporting live. Or head down to Hall FW, Stand 24, to meet the team in person.
