K'2022 , the World's biggest trade show on plastics and rubber is coming closer.

And certainly, bioplastics will again play an important role at this mega-event. That is why we are organizing now for the fifth time the Bioplastics Business Breakfasts (B³).

On three days during the show from October 20 to 22, 2022 bioplastics MAGAZINE will host a Bioplastics Business Breakfast: From 8 am to 12:30 pm the delegates will have the chance to listen to and discuss high-class presentations and benefit from a unique networking opportunity. The conference will be held at the Congress Center ON the fairgrounds of the K-show and includes free access to K'2022 (1-day-ticket).

The three individiual "mini"-conferences will be held on each of the three days from 8:00 am to 12:30 am.

20.10. (Thursday): Bioplastics in Packaging
21.10. (Friday) : PHA, opportunities and challenges
22.10. (Saturday): Bioplastics in Durable Applications

As not all interested attendees will be able to travel to Düsseldorf, we will offer an "online-only" discount of 10%. Online attendees can participate via ZOOM and get a Youtube playlist for convenient watching for at least a month after the event.
