A look back at K 2022

The plastics and rubber industry's delight at finally being able to exchange ideas in person again on a global level after three years characterized the course of K 2022 Düsseldorf and created an excellent mood among the 3,037 exhibitors. The companies reported extraordinarily good contacts and a clear willingness to invest on the part of the trade visitors, the establishment of promising new customer relationships and numerous business deals, some of them spontaneous. 176,000 trade visitors from all continents traveled to the industry event. The proportion of international guests at K 2022 was consistently high at over 70 percent.
