Welcome to the K 2019 in Düsseldorf!

Every 3 years the fair provides for a successful fusion of the digital world with the worlds of production processes and new product developments. Our team is looking forward to meeting manufacturers, buyers and sellers from the entire plastics industry at K 2019 in Düsseldorf. We look forward to welcoming you at our booth.

A world of pioneers

In 1952, companies and trade associations decided to set up an event to demonstrate the performance and versatility of polymer materials. The first K took place in 1952 with 270 exhibitors and 165,000 visitors.

In the early years, K was a showcase for German industry and presented consumer goods from plastics processors, such as "washable toilet bags" or "extremely delicate nylon stockings". In the course of the increasing specialisation of the plastics industry, the K changed into an international trade fair for experts from the plastics and rubber industry.

In the 60-year history of K, the proportion of international visitors rose from 24 percent (1972) to 71 percent (2016). The most recent exhibitor numbers (2016) were 61 nations.

Plastics manufacturers, processors and machine manufacturers are now facing up to the current challenges and presenting the latest developments in the plastics industry. Around 3,200 exhibitors are expected and 232,000 visitors are eager to invest, making the trade fair more international than any other in the industry.
