200+ exhibitors

4,000+ visitors


Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we have taken the difficult decision to delay the Plastics Extrusion World Expo and its co-located shows until November 3-4, 2021.

After consulting with exhibitors, the venue, local government and health authorities, it was clear that we would not be able to deliver the show the industry deserved. With these factors in mind, we felt delaying the exhibitions was the right thing to do.
