Why Visit

For over sixty years Interplas has been the show to present solutions, products, machines and ideas to the UK manufacturing industry. We have created a forum where innovations in plastics technology are presented to an audience eager to seek solutions to their challenges.

Held tri-annually Interplas showcases almost 400 exhibitors to make it by far the UK’s largest plastics Industry event. 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.

2017 Features

Our themes for 2017 were brought to life via some key areas and events that will enable visitors to both get to grips with the issues they face, as well as finding solutions to them. In 2017 these will included the Knowledge Pavilion, the Main Stage @Interplas, Innovation Award and Mediplas @ Interplas.
