K turns 70: how the plastics fair became the world’s No. 1 trade fair with environmental responsibility

Double anniversary: in 2022 we celebrate 70 years of K and 75 years of Messe Düsseldorf. This means the world’s most relevant plastics and rubber trade fair has played a role in jointly shaping our homebase Düsseldorf and the trade fair business in general almost since our company was established. To mark its round-number birthday we will delve with you into the exciting story of K – the trade fair that welcomed around 176,000 visitors to North Rhine-Westphalia’s capital in late October.
