British Visitors at K 2022 Offered Dedicated Space for Meetings

At K 2022, UK visitors will have a dedicated space that they can use for their meetings free of charge, supported by the UK Department for International Trade (DIT).

The British Visitors Networking Area is part of the British Pavilion in Hall 5, which is run by the British Plastics Federation (BPF).  It can be found at stand number 5A28. Featuring tables and chairs for meetings, British visitors to K are encouraged to pre-arrange meetings with their business partners to make the most of this opportunity.

On the first day of K 2022, a drinks reception will also be hosted at the British Visitors Networking Area, with a welcome speech by DIT representatives and plenty of opportunities to network with British companies. It will begin at 4.30pm on 19 October and will finish at approximately 6pm.

DIT Senior Manager for Trade, Chemicals Team Martin Olds states: “K 2022 will feature over seventy UK exhibitors and we expect there to be hundreds of additional British visitors. As the UK government’s department responsible for promoting export and international trade,  DIT recognises the importance of this show to the plastics industry and the value many of the business deals struck at the show bring to the UK economy. We hope that by providing this space for UK visitors to use we are providing a useful resource and supporting the development of future business for the UK.”

BPF Director General Philip Law sates: “The BPF has been running pavilions at K since the 1950s and we’ll be attending once more, leading the British Pavilion, together with a number of our member firms. It’s crucial that UK firms establish a strong export footing post Brexit and we are supporting this with promotional initiatives such as our newly published BPF Industry Directory and several sustainability initiatives that demonstrate the industry’s role as a thought leader. We are delighted that the DIT British Visitors Networking Area is part of the British Pavilion this year and we encourage British visitors to make use of this space for their meetings with potential future business partners.”

British visitors who wish to pre-book space for a meeting within the UK Visitors Networking Area can e-mail Justyna Elliott at Alternatively, UK visitors can come and use the space without booking, subject to availability.
