As the situation around the pandemic improves and countries around the world start to reopen for business, here at Sustainable Plastics we are cautiously looking ahead to what the calendar holds for the plastics world over the next few months.
More specifically, the scheduled events, including the PRSE, which will now take place in the second half of the year. From Germany came the news that various trade fairs and shows will take place as usual, following the announcement by the government that exhibitions have been classified as ‘possible’ activities rather than as mass gatherings, which are banned until the end of August.
And in the Netherlands, RAI Amsterdam, too, has issued a statement to the effect that it will be reopening ‘in the short term while closely following all guidelines regarding social distancing’.
“If garden centres, department stores, home furnishing outlets like IKEA and DIY centres are able to open, so too can we,” says CEO Paul Riemens. It’s good news for the Plastics Recycling Show Europe, which is scheduled to take place on 27 and 28 October at the RAI Amsterdam, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed.
Organised jointly by Crain Communications and Plastics Recyclers Europe, PRSE is a pan-European, free-to-attend exhibition and a conference designed specifically for plastics recycling professionals. It brings together key players from across the entire plastics recycling value chain to showcase innovative technology, share best practice, network and do business. Organisations exhibiting at the event include plastics recycling machinery and equipment suppliers, plastic material suppliers and compounders, pre-processors, plastics recyclers, waste management specialists and industry associations. The 2019 edition of PRSE hosted 3,250 delegates and 120 exhibiting companies and 170 organisations had already booked to exhibit in 2020.
