Interplas 2017, the UK’s plastics industry event, is set to debut Mideplas, a new area of the exhibition to focus on medical plastics.
This trade show is owned by Interplas Events Ltd, a AEO member and BPA Worldwide. The 2017 event takes place on 26-28 September at the NEC, Birmingham.
Organised in conjunction with and sponsored by Medical Plastics News magazine, this special feature zone and conference track will showcase cutting edge innovation and technology in the world of medical plastics.
Lu Rahman, Medical Plastics News group editor, said: “The UK device market is strong – according to Emergo, it is the third largest in Europe. With around 3,000 medical device companies operating in the UK, and many large US companies using the country as a base for subsidiaries, the UK offers opportunities for the entire medical device supply chain, particularly in the areas of imaging, cardiovascular and diagnostics.
“Within this framework, Medical Plastics News will be hosting the ‘Mediplas @Interplas’ zone. It’s a great opportunity for visitors to hear a range of high quality experts discuss issues that are making and will make a difference to their business now and in the future.”
The organiser said that for over sixty years Interplas has been a key show for the UK’s plastic industry for more than 400 exhibitor. Companies attending the exhibition present solutions, products, machines and ideas to the UK manufacturing industry.
