Three free-to-attend exhibitions focused on plastics recycling, extrusion and compounding will return to the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland, Ohio, USA on 4-5 November 2020. They will also be joined by a new expo focused on polymer testing and analysis.

The Compounding World Expo, Plastics Recycling World Expo and Plastics Extrusion World Expo made their highly successful USA debuts in Cleveland in May 2019, attracting a total of 261 exhibitors and 4,375 visitors.

Next year they will grow in size and be and joined by the Polymer Testing World Expo, a new focused exhibition and conference for scientists, laboratory staff and researchers who develop, test and analyse new polymer materials, formulations and products. The new show will benefit from the considerable crossover with the other exhibitions – this year, 1,091 of the visitors to the other three expos said that they were involved in R&D and materials testing.

The exhibitions will see the return of five free conference theaters. These proved highly popular this year, attracting large crowds for a series of technical papers, market forecasts, practical training seminars, and lively business debates featuring industry leaders.

“We were absolutely delighted with the response to our first US exhibitions, which were very well supported by the North American plastics extrusion, recycling and compounding industries” said AMI’s Head of Exhibitions, Rita Andrews. “We’ve had extremely positive feedback about the Cleveland shows from exhibitors and visitors alike”.

More than 180 companies have already booked their booths for the four focused expos in Cleveland in 2020. They include Amut, Atlas, Coperion, Cumberland, Davis Standard, Dover Chemical, Entek, Erema, Farrel Pomini, Gneuss, Heritage Plastics, Konica Minolta, KraussMaffei Extrusion, Leistritz, Maag, Maguire, Matsui, Milliken, Netzsch, NFM, NGR, Omya, Piovan, PolyOne, PTi, Q-Lab, Reifenhauser, Struktol, Thermo Fisher, Vecoplan, Wacker, Windmöller & Hölscher, Zoltek and many more.
