Messe Friedrichshafen is to place the trade fair KPA in new hands. In the future, Kunststoff Produkte Aktuell will be part of the portfolio of Easyfairs. The international event organiser has secured the support of the one-time founder Horst Rudolph for the new beginning.
"The concept behind the KPA trade fair, which I developed and launched on the market together with Carl Hanser Verlag, is very important to me personally. I am looking forward to working with Easyfairs to make KPA the platform it was a few years ago: a relevant and very practical event for plastic products, and new trends and developments in plastics and the associated raw materials," Horst Rudolph says, keen to take action.
„The KPA is an excellent fit for us “
"With its focus as a platform for the plastics processing industry and its user sectors, the KPA is an excellent fit for us", emphasises Roland Brand, managing director Easyfairs DACH. KPA was actually scheduled for March 2022 but will again be postponed due to the number of infections, says Thomas Grunewald, head of Guest Events at Messe Friedrichshafen. The fourth edition of KPA will now take place in March 2023 at the Ulm exhibition centre.
