- Welcome to Plastify 2020 -

Due to organizational reasons PLASTIFY – The Plastic Machinery Convention will be postponed to JANUARY 2021!

On March 26th and 27th, 2020 InterConnection Consulting presents PLASTIFY – The Plastic Machinery Convention for the first time in Vienna, a 1.5-day trade convention on the plastics machinery industry. We are building on our activities as organizer as well as market research and marketing institute of the industry. Three topics form the guideline of Plastify:

Globalization + Market Potentials | Creating Sustainability | Innovations + Strategies

Digitization in production and distribution, globalization and trade wars and the current risk of substitution by 3D-printers are as much the focus of our attention as the increasing shift of companies away from producers to service providers and data managers. 

We dedicate ourselves to the very current topic of Circular Economy Solutions and recycling in the plastics machinery industry and, together with our selected experts, provide input for positioning in the market.

Two panel discussions on the current topic “Creating Sustainability” and on the “Effects of Digitalization” on the industry accentuate the event, as the presentation of the PLASTIFY Awards in cooperation with our media partners does.

On the evening of the 1st convention day, we will also organise an event for all interested participants and their accompanying persons to promote mutual exchange and to review the events of the day together.

This year we will focus on the topic of Globalization & Market Potentials in China, where we will hear Andreas Bexte (Chen Hsong Germany) and Claudia Barkowsky, M.A. (VDMA).

Dr. Gerold Breuer (Erema) and Dipl.Phys. Jochen Mösslein (Polysecure) will define the topic of Creating Sustainability with their presentations. In the area of Innovations, Dipl.-Ing. Sylvia Monsheimer (Evonik) and Dr. Phil Reeves (Reeves Insight) will present new developments in 3D-printing and analyze opportunities and risks for the industry.

We look forward to welcoming you to PLASTIFY 2020!
