Understanding the World Plastic Connection Summit

Discover the most important event for the converted plastics sector in Brazil

What is the event

The World Plastic Connection Summit emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic as a response to the need to create an internationalization ecosystem that would allow access to foreign markets in an innovative way. After all, during this period, it became clear that companies needed new channels and platforms to overcome trade and communication barriers. As such, the event was conceived to be the epicenter of growth and development strategies for Brazil’s plastics industry through an integrated set of projects and initiatives.

Since then, the World Plastic Connection Summit has positioned itself as an innovative ecosystem, with eight differentiated projects, capable of providing companies with networking, commercial promotion, business, image, information and training activities, among others. The event has the unique ability to integrate all segments of the plastics production chain: from the extraction and production of raw materials to the transformation of these inputs into end products.
