EXPO POSTPONED TO 2021
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.
The Plastics Extrusion World Expo returns to
Following the successful launch in 2019, the Plastics Extrusion World Expo returns to the Huntington Convention Center in down town Cleveland. This event brings together professionals from across the plastics extrusion industry for two days of networking, knowledge sharing and innovation. The free-to-attend trade show will run alongside the Compounding World Expo, Plastics Recycling World Expo and Polymer Testing World Expo.
Your free ticket provides admission to the show floor which will have exhibits from leaders in the plastics extrusion industry and focused conference theaters with a busy two-day program of technical presentations, seminars and industry debates.

AMI postpones plastics industry expos in Essen
AMI has announced that its four focused plastics industry exhibitions, which were scheduled to take place at Messe Essen in Germany on 7 - 8 October 2020, have now been postponed to 1 - 2 June 2021. On-going uncertainty created by Coronavirus pandemic led to the decision to delay the Compounding World Expo, Plastics Recycling World Expo, Plastics Extrusion World Expo and Polymer Testing World Expo.
Rita Andrews, head of exhibitions at AMI, said “We have been reviewing the fast-changing situation daily, and we have been consulting with exhibitors, Messe Essen, local government and health authorities. Our primary concerns are for the health and safety of all attendees at our events, and delivering the very best audience for our exhibitors. With these factors in mind, we have taken the decision to postpone the expos to 1 - 2 June 2021”.
AMI announced the decision to reschedule the event on 4 August. Andy Beevers, events director at the company, said: “We felt it was important to make and announce this decision now, in order to end the current uncertainty and to allow exhibitors, speakers and attendees to plan effectively for the new dates. We have had tremendous support and understanding from the industry during this process and are now all looking to forward to a successful return to Essen next year”.
Rita Andrews added: “Exhibitor numbers are up by more than 80% compared to our launch event in 2018, and we want to ensure visitors can feel confident and comfortable in attending the expanded exhibitions”.
Admission to the four expos and their five conference theatres will continue to be free of charge and registration will re-open later this year. Visitors who have already registered for the 2020 event will be able to simply renew their free tickets for the 2021 exhibitions.
