The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS, Washington, DC) has issued a statement announcing that Chinaplas producer Adsale has moved its show dates in 2021 to April 13 to 16, avoiding an overlap with NPE 2021. Adsale also announced that the show will be held in Shenzhen, near Hong Kong. The scheduling change eliminates what would have been a real headache for plastics professionals wanting to attend the premier international plastics trade shows in North America and China.
“CHINAPLAS and NPE share the same goal of providing a venue where the global plastics industry can come together, network and grow,” said PLASTICS President and CEO Tony Radoszewski. Noting that the two events “have long enjoyed a positive, mutually beneficial relationship,” Radoszewski applauded Chinaplas’ move to a region with new market opportunities, calling it “a big win for both our organizations, our events and for the global plastics industry as a whole.”
Chinaplas 2020 will be held in Shanghai on April 21 to 24. Show organizers expect to welcome more than 3900 exhibitors and upwards of 180,000 attendees.
