After a consultation with our Members and ex-exhibitors of past editions within the Italian Pavilion managed by our Association, due to the important local pandemic situation, it is impossible to organize a new Italian collective participation at the next PLASTICO BRASIL, held from November 8 to 12 of this year.

This decision has been also supported by EUROMAP associations, including VDMA.

The exhibition, initially expected in March 2021, has been later postponed to November hoping that the pandemic crisis would slow down at least partially in order to be able to host an international event. On the contrary, Brazil now is still hardly hit by the virus. Also restrictions for travels abroad are to take into account.

Anyway, the exhibition is still confirmed and AMAPLAST and VDMA choices don’t imply similar decisions by individual companies or local branches.

Furthermore, Brazil is still the main destination market in South America for Italian plastics and rubber processing machinery manufacturers.
