No other event attracts such a dense gathering of international specialists from the plastics industry as the K 2019 in Düsseldorf, as was the case once again this year. And Wefapress was in on the action!
With 3,333 exhibitors from 168 nations, the show was attended by no fewer than 224,116 trade visitors from 168 countries. Its slogan: “Thinking. Rethinking. Lateral thinking. New thinking.”
For Wefapress it was a fantastic platform on which to cultivate business relations: according to the trade show review*, 28% of visitors interviewed* from all over the world were mainly interested in semi-finished products and technical parts made of plastic and rubber. It was true to say that everyone from the industry was there – and our 12-strong Wefapress team was very much in its element! They traveled to the major trade show lasting eight days having prepared thoroughly and with well-filled appointment calendars. Each day saw excellent talks with existing customers and – encouragingly – with many potential new customers as well. The general mood among K trade show visitors was very positive and there was always lots going on at the Wefapress stand.
On an equal footing with customers.
At Wefapress, open and honest communication forms the basis for sustainable business relationships. Our customers appreciate this, as well as the fact that tradition and values are still important to us – even though our approach is far from outdated. Wefapress came up with something special for its customers and business partners at the fair: a Düsseldorf – Vreden and back service. In other words, a shuttle was provided between the K trade show and the company site in Vreden, complete with supporting program, company tours and much more besides.
Focus on plastic products.
“The K trade fair is an ideal platform on which to present our company to the world of the plastics industry with our broad product range and our expertise in innovative technical plastics,” says CEO Gerrit J. Beck. “This is exactly where Wefapress® belongs! And we’re definitely entitled to have our say in the current socio-political debate on resource-saving processes, waste avoidance and recycling systems: after all, we’ve always developed and implemented sustainable solutions.”
K trade show review – conclusion.
Wefapress made good use of its opportunities to convey clearly that plastic is still an innovative, indispensable and forward-looking material and that the company is able to successfully develop individual solutions across all industries. Our expectations of the trade show were far exceeded and we are looking forward to excellent follow-up trade. Thank you to everyone who made this possible.
