Great conversations and a trend towards sustainability at Chinaplas 2023

Around 3900 exhibitors presented their latest innovations on an exhibition area of 380,000 square metres. After the last Chinaplas in 2021, which was mainly attended by visitors from China, international visitors were once again streaming through the fairgrounds in Shenzhen due to the relaxation of China's covid-19 restrictions.
