Successful Debut for Compounding World Expo and Plastics Recycling World Exhibition
Organizer AMI Is Very Satisfied
Organised by AMI, the focused plastics industry expos boasted an international audience with 42% of attendees coming from Germany, 50% from the rest of Europe and 8% from outside of Europe. Visitors came from as far afield as South Africa, Brazil, China and Korea.
“We are absolutely delighted with the response to our first exhibitions, which were very well supported by the international plastics recycling and compounding industries,” said AMI’s head of exhibitions, Rita Andrews. “We’ve had extremely positive feedback about the Essen shows from exhibitors and visitors alike”.
Exhibitors reported that they had large numbers of meetings with high-quality contacts on both days of the event. More than 60% of exhibitors have already reserved space for the next European versions of the shows, which will return to Messe Essen on 17-18 June 2020. According to the organizer many have also booked stands at the first US versions of the Compounding World and Plastics Recycling World Expos, which will take place in Cleveland, Ohio, USA on 8-9 May 2019.
The Compounding World and Plastics Recycling World Expos will not take place in Germany next year because of the K 2019 show, but they will return to Essen on 17-18 June 2020 when they will be joined by two additional focused events, the Extrusion Expo and the Polymer Testing Expo. Next year will see the US debut of the Compounding World, Plastics Recycling World and Extrusion Expos at the Huntington Convention Center in downtown Cleveland, Ohio on 8-9 May 2019.
