19 Popular Trade Fairs for Plastics and Rubber

Hey, I’m John, an engineer of Suzhou Hancowi Tech Co., Ltd (Hitcontrols™). As a person who has been engaged in hot runner products for many years. It takes time to understand and learn the whole injection molding industry, just like I am doing now. The best way to understand a product in an industry is to learn from your customers and your competitors. Industry trade show is a good platform to gather all customers & competitors together.
Every year we will go to Chinaplas, learn the new product industry trend, meet our customers there. If you are not familiar with this fair or need help, please feel free to contact us. Or looking for hot runner, injection molding equipment, Hitcontrols is willing to be your alternative.
