It is going on right now in Lyon at Eurexpo Fairground, the 12th edition of FIP (June 17/20).
The exhibition covers around 19.000 net sqm, growing of 20% compared to the 2011 edition when the net area occupied was around 16.000 sqm. Also the number of exhibitors has increased, from 600 of 2011 to 700 this year.
At the end of the third day of exhibition, visitors' flow seemed increasing compared to the first two days and there is a reasonable optimism for the continue of the fair.
Prominent participation of local exhibitors, while foreign countries more represented are Germany and Italy. The more representative application sectors are automotive and medical.
Around 25 Italian companies are exhibiting, directly or through their local agents. Also our Association is present with its own stand (J36), where we are distributing our Members' List , the last issue of the magazine Macplas and, of course, promoting PLAST (May 5-9, 2015).
Additional information on FIP, including the exhibitors' list, are available at www.f-i-p.com.
A more detailed report will follow in the upcoming days in the Members' area of the website.
