This year’s event was no different; the trade fair hosted almost 400 companies from 26 Countries worldwide, which used almost 10 thousand. sq.m. as the exhibition space
This year’s PLASTPOL – International Fair of Plastics and Rubber Processing proved to be an important enabler for new supply and sales chains within the plastics processing sector. This expo mission has been confirmed by a successful visit of Qatar and Angola representatives. They were looking for new investors at the Kielce exhibition and congress centre. Foreign missions were prospering for companies from Poland but also from other European countries.

The power of Targi Kielce’s meetings
The events staged in the Kielce expo’s exhibition space have enjoyed long-term traditions. Not only are we accustomed to the rich and diversified thematic offer and the possibility of expanding business contacts. This is also the place to acquire specialist knowledge. The same is true for PLASTPOL, which follows a many-year example. The expo commenced with the conference hosted by the PlasticsEurope Foundation Polska. This is where the Foundation presented its annual report on the plastics and rubber processing industry’s standing. The PLASTECH-INFO technical seminar was an equally valuable and informative event; the seminar’s thematic scope put last decade’s extremely dynamic development of the technology in in the limelight. The conference included a discussion on plastic products manufacturing, injection moulding in particular.
The industry finds recycling important
As every year, recycling and the activities targeted at producers, institutions, and consumers in particular, were discussed at the conference “Plastics recycling – one goal, many possibilities” held within the scope of the PLASTPOL Expo held in Targi Kielce. The meeting was organised by the Waste Management and Recycling Cluster- National Key Cluster.
One of the conference topics was the use of platforms to track the raw materials circulation and recirculation on the example of the RecoTrace platform.
The meeting brought together experts in plastics processing and plastics recycling associated with at the PlasticsEurope Polska Foundation, including Anna Kozera-Szałkowska, Managing Director of Plastics Europe Polska, Andzej Kubik from GPR GUMA and Plastik Recycling, and Kazimierz Borkowski from Ambiente.
