The Most International Marketplace In Indochina For Plastics and Rubber Production Technologies And Services

Ho Chi Minh City, 17 February 2016 - The 6th edition of PLASTICS AND RUBBER VIETNAM 2016 returns from 1 to 3 March 2016 at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre (SECC), Ho Chi Minh City, co-located with the 11th PROPAK VIETNAM 2016.

This is an opportune staging of the PLASTICS AND RUBBER VIETNAM 2016 exhibition as manufacturing activity in Vietnam currently remains robust – driving plastic product consumption across many diverse industries from automobile, electronics to packaging. According to Vietnam Plastic Association, Vietnam’s plastic industry has been growing at a rapid rate of 20% to 25% per annum, with exports reaching 4.2 billion USD in the first 6 months of 2015, an increase of 10.3% compared to the previous year. Under the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement recently signed by Vietnam, this growth rate is expected to sharply expand in the upcoming years.(*).

The PLASTICS AND RUBBER VIETNAM trade exhibition has to date gathered strong support from international participants from both group pavilions and individual exhibitors alike across many countries and regions. Country groups at the 2016 event include Austria, Italy, Germany, China, Korea, Singapore and the United Kingdom – the highest country group representation in any plastics exhibitions in Vietnam.

The event is expected to attract over 160 exhibitors from 19 countries and regions and has fully occupied the SECC exhibition halls. Confirmed exhibitors include Arburg, Meusburger, Mitsubishi, Morreto, Motan Colortronic, Reifenhauser, Rieckermann, SK Chemical, Song Song, Terrama, Woojin, to name a few.

Another notable news is that the Austrian Pavilion at Plastics and Rubber Vietnam 2016 is the largest ever Austrian pavilion in the region!

The large international presence at the exhibition will offer visitors many networking opportunities and an interesting insight into new technologies on display for the plastics and rubber parts production sector. Together with 2 accompanying technology seminars, this event is a ‘must visit’ trade fair for industry professionals seeking to improve their capabilities to compete globally.

“We are pleased to once again collaborate with Messe Düsseldorf Asia in bringing international exhibitors and technologies to the buoyant Vietnamese marketplace” shares Mr. BT Tee, Deputy Chief, Vietnam Representative Office, Singapore Exhibition Services.  “As manufacturing investments continue to grow in Vietnam, we see tremendous opportunities for both technology sellers and buyers to capitalize on the current investment cycles to profit from doing business in Vietnam”, Mr. BT Tee adds.
