Following its highly successful launch in March this year, organisers of the Plastics Recycling Show (PRS) Europe, the first pan-European exhibition and conference for plastics recycling, have announced that the event will return to the RAI Amsterdam, Netherlands on 24-25 April 2018.
The first edition featured over 80 exhibiting companies, had more than 40 conference speakers who gave presentations and had a total footfall close to 1,400 over the two days.
“We have already had very keen interest in Plastics Recycling Show Europe 2018 from exhibitors, speakers and industry supporters,” said Matt Barber, event Director at Crain Communications. “Our team look forward to building on the outstanding success of the inaugural Plastics Recycling Show and hosting an even bigger and better event in 2018.”
Ton Emans, president of Plastics Recyclers Europe (PRE) said that PRE is certain of the interest from different sectors and industries, and that it would help develop the show to grow and to continue putting plastics recycling in the spotlight of a public debate.
The Plastics Recycling Show is a pan-European, free-to-attend exhibition and a conference designed specifically for plastics recycling professionals. It brings together key players from the plastics and recycling sectors to showcase innovative technology, share best practice, network and do business.

The PRS conference examines a wide range of the latest industry themes including plastics recycling technology and innovation, materials, regulatory backgrounds and the dynamic economics of plastics recycling.
Other industry bodies supporting the event include the European Association of Plastics Recycling & Recovery Organisation (EPRO), European Plastics Converters, Petcore Europe, Plastics Europe and Vinyl Plus. It is organised by Crain Communications in association with Plastics News Europe.
