PRS Europe 2018 featured over 100 exhibiting companies, heard more than 40 conference speakers giving informative and inspirational presentations and had a total footfall of more than 2,400 over two days, an increase of more than 1,000 compared to the launch event in 2017.
Exhibitors and visitors attending the show represented the whole value chain of the plastics industry including among others: recyclers, machine producers, raw material producers, converters, waste management companies and brand owners. PRSE will return to a larger hall at the RAI Amsterdam on 10 and 11 April 2019.
Ton Emans, president of PRE said: “With the success of this show we are sending an important message: the market of recycled plastics in Europe is advancing not only in terms of recycling rates but also technology-wise. The new European legislation and the continuous dialogue of the plastic value chain should further help strengthening and harmonising of our industry. The launch of Plastics Recycling Awards Europe, with a number of finalists and unquestionable winners, is a testimony for the quality of recyclates and an array of applications in which they are used.”
