Furthermore, guided tours of the institute's laboratories and pilot plant rooms were conducted every hour to provide the attendees a vivid impression of the diverse world of plastics processing.

Mayor of Lüdenscheid, Dieter Dzewas, said in his welcoming speech that students today experience too little practice and, on many occasions, have never seen a company from the inside.

Some 150 visitors attended the event to get to know the technology as well as to inform themselves on related career opportunities that are offered.

Torsten Urban, Head of Education and Training, said: "We liked the way the companies presented themselves and how much interest the young people showed in the professions. We will now conduct a survey among visitors and exhibitors, asking for feedback and suggestions for improvement, but are sure that we will repeat this event next year.”
