President Andrzej Mochon: How does the plastics industry deal with the crisis?
The exhibition and the meetings industry have been most affected as the result of the coronavirus pandemic crisis. Targi Kielce (Kielce / Poland; www.targikielce.pl), just like any other expo centre, has had to make the stark decision to cancel events originally scheduled for the period of March until the end of June. We have postponed exhibitions until autumn, yet at the same time we make every possible effort to make the events held on new dates even more attractive than they used to be. We have made the best of our employees’ experience and our company has thus also introduced the new services into its offer. We keep prospering for new projects and solutions outside the mass events business sector. We have carefully monitored present situation – various economy sectors have apparently experienced the hurdle. We are in close contact with “Plastpol” (www.plastpol.com), which was postponed to 6-9 October 2020 due to Covid-19 (see Plasteurope.com of 30.03.2020) – the international fair of plastics and rubber processing’s exhibitors have demonstrated that the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic-related changes have significantly affected the plastics industry.

Despite the difficult situation, the Polish Union of Plastic Converters (Warsaw; www.pzpts.pl) and the industry’s companies have joined forces and offered active support for the health services sector. Their charity campaign collaboration has resulted in nearly half a million protective shields produced and delivered to medical services. Other plastic products and materials necessary for sanitation and safe operation have also been supplied to medical facilities. The coronavirus pandemic reality and plastics processing industry have proven to be inseparable. The plastics business sector has played the instrumental role in protecting human health.
