The Plastics Recycling Show Europe (PRSE) 2022 exhibition and conference held recently in Amsterdam, The Netherlands attracted a record number of visitors and exhibitors from across Europe and 80 different countries internationally. The annual event had a total attendance of more than 5000 over two days and attracted over 200 exhibiting companies. Over 4700 attended the in-person event and over 500 more attended the hybrid event virtually.
“PRSE 2022 has proved by far our most successful show to date, attracting more visitors and exhibiting companies than ever before,” commented Matt Barber, PRSE Event Director at Crain Communications. “Even after expanding the floorplan we sold every stand that would fit into Hall 12, so we are adding Hall 11 as a second hall to the floorplan for 2023 with a chemical recycling feature and an additional conference theatre.”
Unique in Europe, PRSE brings together exhibitors, visitors and Plastics Recycling Awards Europe finalists representing the whole value chain of the plastics industry including recyclers, machine producers, raw material producers, converters, waste management companies, and, increasingly, brand owners, retailers and investors. PRSE facilitates collaborative progress towards the circular use of plastics by showcasing innovation, sharing best practice and bringing partners together to network and do business.
Francesco Pastega, Head of Sales, PreZero Polymers said of this year’s event: “I would say that if you're really interested to have a better understanding on the recycling market, this is the right place to be.” And Yvonne Lievens, Senior Manager Quality & Compliance, Mattel commented: “I learnt a lot today listening to all the conferences. There’s so much ongoing in the regulatory field, but also all the new innovative talks that I heard today. It’s really amazing, impressive!” Jean Henin, CEO of Pellenc ST, a PRSE exhibitor, added: “The PRSE event is a kind of accelerator, it allows us to understand what's going on. It is for us one of the milestones during the year.”
Organised jointly by Crain Communications and Plastics Recyclers Europe, the Plastics Recycling Show Europe returns to Halls 11 and 12 at RAI Amsterdam on 10 and 11 May 2023.
