Since Rapid News Group took over Interplas from Reed Exhibitions in 2010, the UK’s leading plastics event has been on a considerable journey of rebirth and growth.

Interplas has seen a resurgence in the key trade show metrics – visitor numbers, the number of exhibitors and stand space are all up.

Perhaps the most visible indicator is that what was just half of one hall at the NEC in 2008 has now expanded across two halls. Who said manufacturing in the UK was dead?

Dave Gray, Head of Content at British Plastics & Rubber and Interplas Insights sat down with Duncan Wood, Chief Executive of Rapid News Group to find out more about the journey the show has been on and what to look forward to in 2023.
