Steady demand despite difficult conditions for interplastica and UPAKOVKA/UPAK ITALIA trade fairs (January 2015, Moscow). Around 1,000 exhibitors expected

interplastica and UPAKOVKA/UPAK ITALIA 2015, the two leading Russian trade fairs for plastics and rubber and for the packaging and processing technology industry, are recording steady demand from international exhibitors.

From 27 – 30 January almost 1,000 companies will present their new products and services over a net area of around 16,000 square metres.

Werner Matthias Dornscheidt, Chairman and CEO of Messe Düsseldorf, takes a cautiously optimistic view of the market chances, in spite of the tense trade relations with Russia and the current economic difficulties,caused, among other things, by the weak rouble. “Even if the situation at the moment is not exactly easy, I am convinced, that the prospects for the plastics and packaging industries in the Russian market are positive in the long term. We have been organising trade fairs in Russia since 1963 and there have always been highs and lows. Past crises have shown us that those who maintain a market presence in difficult times are among the winners when business picks up again.”
