From May 30 to June 2, Equiplast 2023, the international trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry, will once again enliven the Barcelona exhibition center. The event will be flanked by Expoqimia and Eurosurfas, events dedicated respectively to chemistry and surface treatment.
Equiplast 2023 could record the best performance of the last five years. The data published on the official website predicts 19,000 visitors, 450 exhibitors, and over 800 brands between Equiplast and Expoquimia, for a total area of 21,000 square meters.
Applications and goals
Equiplast welcomes the numerous sectors of plastic transformation: raw materials and additives; machinery, equipment, and automation systems; peripherals, parts, and components; molds and dies; semi-finished and finished products; hardware and software environment; recycling, industrial and occupational safety; research, development, and innovation; subcontracting and services.
Through the slogan “Connecting industry, society and sustainability“, Equiplast 2023 reveals the plastics supply chain’s intention to reduce the environmental impact of its industrial activity, promoting circular economy solutions favored by technology transfer and digitalisation.
The fair has been attracting high-level visitors for years: general managers, export managers, and production managers from various industrial sectors. Equiplast 2023 not only represents a strategic showcase for technological innovation but also an unmissable commercial opportunity in the Iberian market. Focused on the exchange of knowledge, the fair offers numerous conferences, workshops, and side events.
Equiplast 2023 takes on a new challenge this year: finding innovative technologies to fulfill the legal obligations of the new Spanish legislation relating to waste, packaging, and soil contamination. The law imposes, among other issues, a tax on single-use plastic packaging.
It will therefore be a crucial edition for the future and the competitiveness of a sector called to face new obstacles and embrace new trends in a green and circular perspective.
