“We are delighted by the industry’s response to these new tradeshows,” said Andy Beevers, events director at AMI. “The two large halls at the Cleveland Convention Centre are filling up quickly, and we’ve seen strong growth in interest in recent weeks as more market leaders book their booths.”

Building on the very successful launch of AMI’s compounding and recycling shows in Essen, Germany in June of this year, the Cleveland event is shaping up to be the largest plastics industry gathering in the USA next year. It will feature five free-to-attend conference theatres, plus there will be a networking party for attendees and exhibitors at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the evening of May 8.

“The first Compounding World and Plastics Recycling World Expos in Essen, Germany attracted 184 exhibitors plus 4,024 visitors, and they received an extremely positive reaction from the industry,” said Rita Andrews, head of exhibitions at AMI. “With the addition of the Plastics Extrusion World Expo, we are confident that we will build on these numbers to make the Cleveland event even bigger and busier”.

AMI has extensive experience of running successful conferences for the compounding and extrusion industries in North America, which attract thousands of delegates each year. These include: Compounding World Forum; Thermoplastics Concentrates; Fire Retardants in Plastics; Polymers in Cables; Performance Polyamides; PVC Formulation; Conductive Plastics; Polymer Foam; Profiles; Medical Tubing; Polyethylene Films; Multilayer Flexible Packaging; Stretch and Shrink Film; Thin Wall Packaging; and Polymers in Flooring.
