Compounding World Expo 2018: New international exhibition focused specifically on the plastics compounding industry

27-28 June 2018, Essen, Germany

A new international exhibition focused specifically on the plastics compounding industry will take place in Essen, Germany, on 27-28 June 2018. The Compounding World Expo is being launched by AMI, which is a leading organiser of conferences for the global plastics additives and compounding markets.

The exhibition will be free to attend and will cover all types of polymer compounds including polyolefins, PVC, engineering plastics, styrenics, TPEs and masterbatch, as well as plastics recycling. Free seminars, technical presentations and industry debates will take place in lecture theatres on the exhibition floor.


“The compounding industry plays a critical role in the growth and development of plastics markets”, said Andy Beevers, AMI’s Event Director. “The Compounding World Expo 2018 will reflect the growing influence and importance of the sector by providing a dedicated large-scale international meeting place for compounders and masterbatch makers.”

He added that Messe Essen was selected because of its large and modern exhibition facilities that are ideally located in the centre of Europe’s industrial heartland. Essen is just 20 minutes’ drive from Dusseldorf airport or a short journey by train.

“Based on discussions we have had with a wide range of industry suppliers in recent months, there is great enthusiasm for an exhibition focused specifically on thermoplastics compounding”, said Matt Wherlock, AMI’s Exhibition Sales and Marketing Manager. “A variety of key suppliers have already reserved stands including Brabender, Budenheim, Buss, CPM Century Extrusion, Econ, Farrel Pomini, Feddem, ICMA San Giorgio, Imerys, JSW, KraussMaffei Berstorff, Leistritz, LKAB Minerals, OCSiAl, Penta, Plasmec, Plastic Systems, Polyscope, Promixon, Steer, Velox and Xinda among others.”

The Compounding World Expo will be AMI’s first free-to-enter exhibition for delegates. “Many of our paid-for conferences feature table top exhibitions with up to 50 exhibitors, so launching a large-scale exhibition is a logical step for our business”, explained Beevers. “Our events team has extensive experience of launching and running successful exhibitions in the plastics industry and in other B2B markets, so is well placed to make the Compounding World Expo a great event for exhibitors and visitors.”

Buss AG, a leading supplier of Kneader technology, were one of the key players to reserve a stand in the build up to the exhibition launch. Marco Senoner, Head of Marketing at Buss, explained: “Through its Compounding World magazine and conferences, AMI has created a valuable platform to unify the compounding secto.” Senoner added: “The new Compounding World Expo represents an attractive continuation of this success story, bringing the major players of this sector together at one exhibition.”
