This year's Compounding World Expo took place at the exhibition centre in Essen on 14 and 15 June 2023 and more than 200 exhibitors again joined this networking event of the plastics industry.
Apart from Carl Aug. Picard GmbH, further well-known exhibitors from Germany participated such as Coperion, KraussMaffei and Leistritz, but also smaller competitors and exhibitors from Japan, Italy and China such as JSW, Maris, Icma, Bandera, Jwell and Lesun participated again and thus provided international input.
This year's industry get-together with specialist lectures about the theme of recycling attracted numerous visitors from within an approximately 200 km radius and resulted in interesting expert discussions with local customers.
The Compounding World Expo was supplemented by events of the Plastics Extrusion World Expo, Plastics Recycling World Expo and Polymer Testing World Expo. In this context, various panel discussions about current trends and developments relating to the topics material availability, innovations in the analysis of plastic materials and the general development of the market took place.
The next exhibition will be held in Brussels in September 2024. Then, the focus will surely be on Benelux.
