In light of the ongoing pandemic and uncertainties regarding the timeline and methods of the vaccination campaign - elements that continue to condition activities in the plastics and rubber industry and, most importantly, strongly limit travel by Italian and foreign operators - and as urged by exhibitors, the organizers of Plast-International Exhibition for Plastics and Rubber Industries has decided to postpone the event to a future date to be determined, but certainly after the end of 2021.
The current situation and the impossibility of envisaging future options with any reasonable degree of confidence make it impossible to adequately plan and organize an international event of the stature of Plast, representing a showcase for complex technologies and systems. Both the organizers and the participants require a significant amount of time to plan the event and this cannot be guaranteed at present.
The difficult decision to postpone has been taken regretfully but responsibly, the prime objective being to ensure the safety of all parties involved. The organizers look forward to being able to schedule the next Plast under the best conditions possible and with in-person attendance.
The new dates will be determined in the coming weeks.
