Organisers of the Plast exhibition in Milan, Italy in May say more than 1,100 exhibitors from 40 countries have signed up for the event. This was the total up to 31 December 2011, and the final number is likely to be more as applications for stands have continued to be submitted in recent weeks. Plast, which takes place on 8-12 May at Fiera Milano, will have exhibitors representing the entire production chain of machines, equipment, moulds, raw materials, recycled materials, composites, and semi-finished and finished products. A list of exhibitors is at the Plast 2012 website, where companies will be posting information on their products in the run-up to the event. Visitors to Plast can also attend side events, technical conferences and the co-located Rubber 2012 fair.
