What you will see

Interplas is the biggest plastics industry event in the UK. A triennial event, over 500 exhibitors invest time and planning into demonstrating their latest machinery, equipment, products and services for visitors to view, test and experience at the show. 

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 more.

Add to this a full three days of conferences from some of the industry’s leading brands, authorities and organisations, as well as supplementary seminars, workshops and events, a visit to Interplas ensures you will get value, insight and experience you would not get at your desk. 

What's On

Specialist features add value to a visit to Interplas - with key areas and events that enable attendees to understand the issues they face, as well as finding solutions for them. In 2020 the Knowledge Pavilion will return, where a bank of highly experienced industry personnel will be on hand to answer questions and resolve queries. The show will also see the return of sector specific features, such as ‘Mediplas@Interplas’, which showcases the highly specialised medical sector; and ‘Inspex@Interplas’, which highlights those companies which bring plastics manufacturing to life through measuring, testing and inspection technologies and services.

2020 Conference

Interplas provides an engaging and value-added conference programme that is designed to impart insight and information. The conference in 2020 will take place once again across two dedicated stages: The Main Stage and The Intoducing Stage. Previous speakers across both stages include polymer materials specifiers from leading manufacturers in the automotive and packaging industries, senior product developers from the medical industry and thought leaders in the fields of sustainability, waste and resources. A call for papers will open in 2019.
