Compounding World Expo 2018 is an exciting new event from AMI that will run alongside the Plastics Recycling World Exhibition 2018. Each focused exhibition will take place at the same time in separate but adjacent halls at Messe Essen.

The exhibition will feature an international array of more than 130 suppliers of polymer additives and compounding machinery and equipment, as well as providers of related services. The target audience encompasses compounders from all sectors of the polymer industry including polyolefins, PVC, engineering plastics, TPEs, masterbatch and recycling.

Your free ticket to the event will provide free access to a series of business debates, training seminars, and industry presentations, organised by the experts at AMI. These will be held in two dedicated conference theatres on the exhibition floor:

Conference Theatre 1 – Business Debates & Industry Presentations

Conference Theatre 2 – Training Seminars & Industry Presentations


Business Debates

Business debates will run for 45 minutes and feature influential industry leaders discussing strategic issues facing the global compounding industry. They will be focused on specific sectors of the compounding market including engineering plastics, masterbatch, PVC and polyolefins. The panellists have been selected and invited by the editorial team of Compounding World magazine.

A series of six practical training seminars will be delivered by experts on a range of topics, such as the optimisation of compounding lines, REACH legislation and the importance of colour in buying decisions. The speakers have also been selected and invited by the Compounding World team.
