Interplas – the UK’s leading plastics industry event – the only event to cover all of the manufacturing processes, technologies and services essential to the plastics sector.

For over sixty years Interplas has been the show to present solutions, products, machines and ideas to the UK manufacturing industry – it is known internationally as the forum where the UK plastics industry comes to do business.

Held tri-annually Interplas showcases almost 400 exhibitors. The event is resurgent and this reflects a revitalised UK manufacturing industry. Visitors will be able to see the entire spectrum of moulding and forming machines in action as well as materials, automation, contract manufacturing and supporting technologies including software, testing, inspection, surface treatments and much much more.

In the heart of the action, on the show floor Interplas presents a high quality seminar programme curated by the leading organisations in the plastics industry including the BPF, GTMA, RAPRA, KTN and NetComposites. These tracks alongside sessions presented by organiser media brands British Plastics and Rubber and Medical Plastics News will provide attendees with information on cutting edge application s, new technologies and the hot topics in the sector.

In September over 10,000 attendees will visit Interplas for insights, education and most importantly to do business. The mix of quality speakers, cutting edge technology and innovative features including MODIP @ Interplas — all accessible with no entrance fees for attendees — is unique.
