"The Caxias do Sul region is an important epicenter for the manufacturing industry, with the plastic industry as one of its most well-developed segments. It's strategic for Plástico Brasil, to be able to participate in the Simplás dinner and present the second edition of the show to the members," comments Liliane Bortoluci, Director, at Informa Exhibitions, Plástico Brasil's organizer.

Plástico Brasil is an initiative of ABIMAQ and ABIQUIM, presented by Informa Exhibitions. The show takes place on March 25-29, 2019 at São Paulo Expo, the most modern trade show facility in Latin America, and expects to attract more than 500 exhibitor brands and 45 thousand attendees.

Seminar, the 15º Mold ABM, the Brazilian Metalworking, Materials and Mining Association, among others.  In the international arena, the show was present at Plastimagen México 2017, and Andina Pack 2017, in Colombia.
