The BPF is now recruiting UK companies to join the British Pavilion at ‘Interplastica,’ the largest plastics trade show in Russia, (Moscow) on 29th January to 1st February 2013. This annual event attracted over 20,000 visitors and 550 exhibitors at the previous edition which took place in January this year.
Interplastica is a gateway into the Russian market. The BPF is providing a cost effective and efficient route to reach the Russian plastics industry whilst providing on-going management support prior to and during the exhibition. With the BPF working closely with UK Trade and Investment, British exhibitors can apply for a grant of up to £1000 to go towards the cost of exhibiting.
The Russian market is growing and has reported an impressive 4% GDP rise and a 6% increase in investment in plant and equipment over the last year. “The Russian market with over 3,200 plastics processors consuming more than 4.5 million tonnes of plastics raw materials offers huge potential for UK firms” says Angela Fredericks of the BPF.
There are limited places on the Pavilion and space is filling up fast, consequently companies wishing to join the Pavilion are advised to sign up as soon as possible.
