New additional service in the run-up to K 2022 in Düsseldorf: Monthly K-Talk starts online on January 20, 2022!
Topic of the first K-Talk: “Climate protection and plastics – do they go together?”
Outlook, orientation, hot topics +++ exciting live discussion rounds with industry experts, users, and representatives from the media and politics +++ K-Talk enables global dialog even before the Leading Trade Fair in the fall +++ on-demand service
On October 19 this year, K 2022, The World’s No. 1 Trade Fair for Plastics and Rubber, will open its doors for eight days. For the 22nd time, K in Düsseldorf will be the performance barometer for the entire industry and its global marketplace for innovations.
K 2022 already offers a real highlight to get you in the mood for the major industry event: the new K-Talk. For the first time on January 20 and then once a month until the trade show in the fall, the K Talk offers exciting discussion rounds with changing international participants, such as industry experts, scientists, representatives of the user industries, from politics, media or NGOs. In doing so, K Talk provides valuable insights, focuses on the application areas of plastics, highlights technological innovations and discusses current challenges of the industry such as circular economy, climate protection and digitalization. Whether concrete best practice examples or long-term strategies for the future – the visions and different perspectives of the panelists are intended to inspire, provide orientation and encourage international exchange.
The K-Talk will be broadcast live via k-online.com and will each last 45 to a maximum of 60 minutes. The international format is in English. Active exchange is encouraged, so questions can be submitted throughout the talk via the chat function. The last quarter of an hour of K-Talk is then devoted exclusively to answering questions from the audience.
