International Fair

Think Plastic Brazil

The Brazilian booth will feature products from 24 brands. The delegation will also take part in a cycle of talks, a guided tour of key local retail chains (Retail Tour), and a guided visit to the trade show (Promenade).

In December 2023, Think Plastic Brazil celebrated its 20-year anniversary, setting a milestone for a legacy of innovations and achievements when it comes to the process of internationalizing in the industry. In line with one of the premisses in its 2024/2028 Strategic Plan, which aims to position the Brazilian manufactured plastics industry as one of the leading countries in innovation, design, and sustainability, the 2024 edition of the Ambiente show will be the stage for innovative actions. The goal of these actions is to connect the main players in the global market. At its booth, in addition to the retail tour, cycle of talks, promenade, and 11 display cases spread throughout the trade show, and the introduction of Color Trend 2024, a new Brazilian color guide[1], along with products made in these colors, we will also have renowned Brazilian designers Jum Nakao[2] and Marco Lobo[3] with us.

Think Plastic Brazil will be at the Ambiente 2024 trade show with a delegation of 24 Brazilian companies. The event is being held in Frankfurt, Germany from January 26 to 30. The project is geared toward promoting the export of manufactured plastic products and is carried out through a partnership between ApexBrasil (Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency) and the INP (National Institute of Plastic).

The Brazil booth will be located in pavilions 9.3 and 4.2. In addition to the program of talks and the product expo by the brands in attendance, there will be presentations of the 2023 Yearbook and Color Trend 2024. The former is a catalog of product launches and innovations from Brazilian companies, while the latter is a study of global trends in color and design, containing aspects of the plastic production chain in Brazil. Both were launched during the III World Plastic Connection Summit.
