28th Fakuma Organiser announces high booking levels for Fakuma 2023
Germany — The next Fakuma international trade fair for plastics processing will take place in Friedrichshafen on Lake Constance from the 17th through the 21st of October, 2023. Key issues include injection moulding, extrusion technology, thermoforming and 3D printing, as well as sustainability, circular economy and recycling.
One and a half years before the 28th Fakuma opens its doors, industry players are already booking floor space. Project manager Annemarie Schur from Schall trade fair promoters explains: “Fakuma is traditionally one of the top events in the plastics industry, as demonstrated once again by the live trade fair held in the fall of 2021. Fakuma was greatly celebrated and we’ll pick up where we left off again in 2023.”
1,470 exhibitors from 39 countries came to Lake Constance in October 2021 and showcased their innovations covering all aspects of injection moulding, extrusion technology, thermoforming and 3D printing on 85,000 square metres of overall exhibition floor space. Special attention was focused on the issues of environmental protection, circular economy and sustainability. “Recycling and environmental compatibility will be dealt with again extensively in 2023. There can be no doubt that the exhibitors will present ground-breaking innovations and continue to work intensively on pioneering solutions,” affirms the project manager with certainty. Professor Dr.-Ing. Martin Bastian, director of the SKZ Institute in Würzburg, appealed for more responsibility in determining what happens to plastics at Fakuma 2021. In his passionate plea for the importance of plastics, he made it clear that they should not only be accepted, but used with enthusiasm. “And we have to do a lot more to educate people about its benefits,” said Bastian last fall.
The 28th Fakuma in Friedrichshafen from 17 to 21 October 2023 will once again provide a platform for exhibitors and expert visitors to exchange ideas on automation and digitalisation, as well as circular economy and the conservation of resources. Numerous traditional world market leaders have already saved the dates for the 29th Fakuma in Friedrichshafen from the 15th through the 19th of October, 2024. “Our proven trade fair concept for Fakuma is unique and enjoys widespread acclaim — and we’ll stick with it,” says Bettina Schall, trade fair promoter and managing director of Schall. “Fakuma unites practical relevance with high levels of professional competence, as usual in a familiar atmosphere. More than any other event, Fakuma is the perfect place for discussing new products and forward-looking solutions in the plastics industry on an equal footing.”
