The first Compounding World Expo in North America was held on May 8-9,2019, at the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland, Ohio. It was the biggest ever focused event for the plastics compounding industry, building on the success of last year’s debut expo in Essen, Germany.

More than 2,000 people have attended the event. The number of exhibitors in the Compounding World Expo has grown to more than 145.

“We’ve been delighted by the response to the US launch of our Compounding World Expo,” said Andy Beevers, events and magazines director at AMI, the organiser of the event. “It’s great to see everything coming together for what is going to be a really productive and enjoyable forum for the plastics compounding industry, providing excellent networking and learning opportunities”.

Visitors to the Compounding World Expo was entitled to free admission to two adjacent exhibitions – the Plastics Recycling World Expo and the Plastics Extrusion World Expo – plus their three focused conference theatres. In total there were more than 260 exhibitors and over 130 speakers across the three expos and their conference theatres.
