About the event


K Messe will discuss sustainable plastics manufacturing between the 8th and 15th of October 2025 in Messe Düsseldorf.


Founded in 1952, K MESSE (K MESSE Düsseldorf) is the central trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry. It is a leading networking platform for discussing the newest industry challenges. It also serves as the sector's largest procurement platform and presentation stage. This is because K MESSE occurs once every three years in Messe Düsseldorf. This allows exhibitors to develop novel products.

The trade fair receives a diverse range of attendees. Such include managers, manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, engineers, purchasing agents, product designers, specialist trade experts, R&D experts, and higher education institutions. Frequently, the turnover rate exceeds 220 000 participants. For instance, one edition attracted 3 330 exhibitor firms from 63 countries and 225 000 visitants from 168 nations. The attending nations include China, Mexico, the United States, Nigeria, New Zealand, and France.

The statistics of the trade fair confirm its leading role in the industry. For instance, 94% of the exhibitors expressed high satisfaction with visitor quality, and 96% planned to visit the next rendition. Furthermore, 76% of visitors have direct involvement in purchasing decisions (47% had top management positions, and 20% had middle management positions), and 73% represent foreign countries. 98% of participants would recommend attending K MESSE. Additionally, 46% of visitants secure new suppliers, and 98% of the group is pleased with the event’s iterations.


K MESSE features a compact yet comprehensive programme with diverse themes. These vary for each rendition and are influenced by the current megatrends. Frequently, they include two or more focus topics. The thematics are reflected within each showstopper, including the exhibition, the Start-up Zone, the Science Campus, the VDMA Circular Economy Forum, and the specialised show such as Plastics shape the future. It is not uncommon for K MESSE to incorporate new sub-events, such as the K-Talk.
