AMI has announced that its plastics industry exhibitions in Messe Essen in Germany have been rescheduled to take place on 7-8 October 2020.
Previously scheduled for 3-4 June, the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic led to the decision to delay the Compounding World Expo, Plastics Recycling World Expo, Plastics Extrusion World Expo and Polymer Testing World Expo.
Rita Andrews, head of exhibitions at AMI, said, “We have been reviewing the fast-changing situation daily, and we have been consulting with exhibitors, Messe Essen, local government and health authorities. Our primary concerns are for the health and safety of all attendees at our events, and delivering the very best audience for our exhibitors. With these factors in mind, we have taken the decision to postpone the expos to 7-8 October”.
Andy Beevers, events director at the company, added, “We felt it was important to make and announce this decision now, in order to end the current uncertainty and to allow exhibitors, speakers and attendees to plan effectively for the new dates.”
