The world’s first international exhibition focused specifically on the plastics compounding industry will take place in Essen, Germany on 27-28 June 2018. The Compounding World Expo is being launched by AMI, which is the leading organiser of conferences for the global plastics additives and compounding markets.
The exhibition will be free to attend and will cover all types of polymer compounds including polyolefins, PVC, engineering plastics, styrenics, TPEs and masterbatch, as well as plastics recycling. Free seminars, technical presentations and industry debates will take place in lecture theatres on the exhibition floor.
“The compounding industry plays a critical role in the growth and development of plastics markets,” said Andy Beevers, AMI’s Event Director. “The Compounding World Expo 2018 will reflect the growing influence and importance of the sector by providing a dedicated large-scale international meeting place for compounders and masterbatch makers”.
He added that Messe Essen was selected because of its large and modern exhibition facilities that are ideally located in the centre of Europe’s industrial heartland. Essen is just 20 minutes’ drive from Dusseldorf airport or a short journey by train.
“Based on discussions we have had with a wide range of industry suppliers in recent months, there is great enthusiasm for an exhibition focused specifically on thermoplastics compounding,” said Matt Wherlock, AMI’s Exhibition Sales and Marketing Manager. “A variety of key suppliers have already reserved stands including Brabender, Budenheim, Buss, CPM Century Extrusion, Econ, Farrel Pomini, Feddem, ICMA San Giorgio, Imerys, JSW, KraussMaffei Berstorff, Leistritz, LKAB Minerals, OCSiAl, Penta, Plasmec, Plastic Systems, Polyscope, Promixon, Steer, Velox and Xinda among others”.
