New plastics recycling exhibition launched


A new plastics exhibition and conference has been launched by Crain Communications.

The new Plastics Recycling Expo (pre) will take place from 18-19 June 2014, and will be located next to the existing PDM exhibition at Telford International Centre.


Designed specifically for plastics recycling professionals, pre2014 will bring together key players from sectors including recycling, processing and converting, major brand owners and others.

Crain Communications UK managing director Steve Crowhurst said: “Recycling is something that everyone knows is crucial for a host of reasons, not least environmental ones. But while there has been a lot of time and effort devoted to dealing with materials such as metal and paper, plastics have been overlooked.

“We believe that pre will bang the drum for plastics recycling in the UK and beyond, celebrate the great things the industry does and remind people that there is more to the material than ocean waste.”
