Plastics is Global Business!

Roughly 1700 exhibitors from 35 countries and, at the last Fakuma in 2016, more than 45,000 expert visitors from 120 countries: the international expert audience comes together every 12 months – with scheduled interruptions in the K years – where Germany, Switzerland and Austria meet on lake Constance in southern Germany. Naturally, the lion’s share of the exhibitors and expert visitors come from the German speaking countries and Central Europe. However, there’s a trend towards sharply increasing participation on the part of exhibitors and expert visitors from Asia, who present their companies’ products and services at the industrial heart of Europe. Or expressed the other way round: those who succeed in Europe’s highly demanding markets have very good chances in the world markets, and this is a strong indication of Fakuma’s importance in the global world of plastics.
