K-fair 2022

The world’s largest plastics trade fair, K – Messe 2022, is just around the corner and, as always since our association was founded, we are organising a bus trip there. The range of products at the K – Fair includes all companies of distinction from the fields of machinery and equipment, raw and auxiliary materials as well as semi-finished products, technical parts and reinforced plastic products. In short: the latest state of plastics technology will be presented by about 3200 exhibitors on more than 260,000m² of exhibition space.

Details will follow in time, but for now the key data:

Our excursion will start on 19.10.2019 early in the morning and end on 23.10.2019 in the evening in front of Science Park 2. The journey to our accommodation (STATION – Host for Backpackers) will be by bus, which will also take us from Cologne to the fair in Düsseldorf and back or home (23.10.) on the following days (20./21./22.10.). The trip will cost about 162€ / person (bus, accommodation incl. breakfast, entrance tickets).


The number of participants is limited to 50 persons; furthermore, membership of the VKT is obligatory! If you are not yet a member but still interested, please register online here. You can register via our event page here. As always: First come, first served – the ranking will be based on your registration date. Experience shows that most people spend 2 days at the fair and the third day in Cologne.
