Immediately after postponing the scheduled trade fair dates in 2020 to next year, trade fair promoters P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG acted quickly and officially opened the new digital meeting place for suppliers and users of industrial plastics processing. Exhibitors are showcasing their trade fair highlights, product innovations and sustainability features in a compact format in attractive, ideally structured virtual showrooms, along with web-based presentations with the help of a webcast function.

“In particular during the course of this extraordinary year, Fakuma-Virtual provides exhibitors with strong benefits at comparatively low costs. In order to kick off his virtual presentation, all the exhibitor has to do is upload information which is already available for the trade fair anyway in the usual data formats. This is automatically networked via the content management system. With our additional new focused trade fair offerings, we’re moving up quickly to the required level of practical solutions for technological change in an uncomplicated manner. And we continue to promote sustainable success in the plastics industry,” explains Bettina Schall, managing director of the trade fair promoters.

“We’re convinced that Fakuma-Virtual offers a promising alternative for gathering information concerning industry trends in an uncomplicated manner in our current situation. Visitors are able to familiarise themselves with numerous innovations very quickly. At Igus, this falls under the mission statement ‘Tech up, costs down. That’s our job.’ — with over 100 motion plastics innovations this year which verifiably and sustainably improve technology and reduce costs,” says Oliver Cyrus, head of public relations and advertising at Igus GmbH concerning the new opportunities provided by Fakuma.
