Chinaplas 2014 is the largest plastics annual event in the world, which rotates between Guangzhou and Shanghai. The exhibition has been steadily growing throughout the years and it now attracts a huge 114,103 visitors from 138 countries and nearly 3,000 exhibitors from 36 countries. The show size has also grown significantly; with 11 halls back in 2010 and now boasting 17 halls and 8 temporary halls, which are all already fully booked.

The British exhibitors will be showcasing their products and services in hall W1 and will be supported by UKT&I grants of up to £3,000. With the recent increase in grants offered by UKT&I, the funding encourages UK exporters to participate in trade fairs which they may otherwise find hard to bear the cost of.

British exhibitors will definitely not be disappointed by the turnout and quality of visitors to the show. Statistically, the majority of visitors come from the packaging industry, IT& telecommunication, raw materials and chemicals and machinery manufacturers.

Philip Law of the British Plastics Federation said: ”The BPF was one of the first UK industrial organisations to get a foothold in China, back in 1982. Today there is huge business development potential for UK firms. This year Chinaplas is oversubscribed, which is a sign that it is so important to be there.”
