Since its first edition in 1983, there have been 30 CHINAPLAS events – and the show has come a very long way from its origins in Beijing, bringing a keener, greener look to 2016’s outing.
At the first ever CHINAPLAS, the show took up just 2,000 m sq of exhibition space and a whopping 90 per cent of exhibitors were from overseas, selling into China, with most visitors coming from Chinese companies to learn about the technologies coming out of Europe and the US.
Today, the tables have turned, with China blossoming into a leading manufacturing power with strong production ability and export market.
Over the past three decades, CHINAPLAS has grown with the Chinese market into a platform for the showcase of both overseas technologies and Chinese machineries for export. Its international nature attracts over 120.000 visitors from more than 150 countries and regions.
CHINAPLAS will continue to keep abreast of the trends in the dynamic environment and lead the industry to cope with the changing world, say organisers.
