Plastics Live Promotes the UK Plastics Manufacturing Ecosystem

Plastics Live — to be held in Coventry, U.K. 12-13th June 2024 — will be the only dedicated plastics event on the calendar in the United Kingdom in 2024 and also in 2025. The event is proud to describe itself as a UK show to stimulate UK business, and as such, it brings together the cream of technology and service suppliers that are dedicated to optimising the commercial outcomes for the dynamic UK plastic manufacturing sector.

Plastics Live continues to see plastics manufacturing incorporating technologies and issues that were seen as separate concerns for mainstream plastic production. The event encompasses Additive manufacturing (AM) through the co-located event “amplas”, smart manufacturing through the co-located event “Industry 4.0 in Plastics”, and environmental issues through the co-located event “Sustainable Plastics Live.”

Scott Colman, show organiser, says, Additive manufacturing is now an integral part of mainstream production, with its applications spanning across industries. Simultaneously, Industry 4.0 principles, encompassing automation, data analytics, and interconnected systems, have become essential for efficiency and competitiveness.

“To accurately represent the current manufacturing landscape, it is more logical to exhibit these technologies at general manufacturing shows such as Plastics Live, where we can provide a comprehensive platform for industry professionals to explore the interconnectedness and synergies between AM and Industry 4.0 within the context of holistic plastics manufacturing solutions, fostering cross-disciplinary innovation and collaboration.

John Jones, Plastics Live Sales Manager, says, “Manufacturers seek comprehensive solutions that encompass the full spectrum of their operational needs, from design and prototyping to production and supply chain management. By showcasing AM and Industry 4.0 alongside traditional plastics manufacturing processes and tools, Plastics Live facilitates a more nuanced understanding of how these technologies can complement and enhance existing plastics manufacturing capabilities. This integrated approach enables show attendees to make informed decisions and investments that align with their overarching business objectives, ultimately driving greater efficiency, competitiveness, and sustainable growth.

Plastics Live 2024 returns to the Coventry Building Society Arena in Coventry, and with its broad-based exhibitor profile and complete focus on UK exhibitors for UK plastic manufacturing, it is set to be a large-scale and influential event that will help stimulate investment in the UK plastics sector.
