About us

At the Swiss Plastics Expo, exhibitors from Switzerland and abroad present practical solutions for high-efficiency, state-of-the-art plastics production. This benefits decision-makers in the sales markets for sectors such as automobile production, construction, electronics, equipment manufacturing, mechanical engineering, medicine and packaging.

Across all these industries, the Swiss Plastics Expo addresses the key issues related to plastics and plastics processing. With the focus on practical applications, a varied range of focus topics highlight the potential of plastic as a material for maintaining competitive edge. For each focus topic, exhibitors offer a wealth of knowledge and inspiration in the form of showcases.

Individual learning is another key feature of the Swiss Plastics Expo. Renowned presenters discuss science, technology and industry at the Innovation Symposium. Numerous keynote speakers and exhibitors offer a general overview of the focus topics, complemented by information about trends and reports on their own experiences.

The next Swiss Plastics Expo will take place from 15 to 17 March 2022
