Interplas Exhibitor Advisory Board
As the current custodians of the Interplas brand, Interplas Events Ltd, part of the Rapid News Group is just one stakeholder in the event. Interplas belongs to the plastics industry, and as we celebrate its 75th birthday we want to ensure that the future of the show is shaped as much by the supporters as by the organisers.

The Exhibitor Advisory Board provides ideas and recommendations for content for the three-day conference, features on the show floor, initiatives, award presentations and networking events.
