The next edition of the K global plastics fair in Dusseldorf, Germany isn’t until October 2013, but it already has a theme: mobility.

“Under the motto of ‘Plastics move the world’, numerous aspects of the general theme of mobility will be presented – from lightweight materials in the design of motor vehicles, aircraft and ships via electromobility through to individual mobility and modern leisure behavior,” said Messe Dusseldorf, the organizer of the trade event K global plastics fair, in a statement. “The spotlight will be on climate-compatible energy and transport strategies as well as on the changes in the worlds of work and leisure thanks to mobile means of communication.”

The company also said that themed events at K 2013 will include special exhibits, daily rounds of discussions involving experts from science and industry, and multimedia.

Past themes at previous K fairs have included “Protection” – encompassing plastics in packaging and also the protective role played by plastics in vehicles and other applications – and “Renewability”.

K 2013 is scheduled to run between October 16 and 23, 2013. Messe Dusseldorf will send invitations to exhibitors at the beginning of 2012. The closing date for exhibitor registration is May 31, 2012.
