Free online registration has now opened for the AMI Plastics World Expos which are being held at the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland, Ohio on November 13-14, 2024.

Taking place for the fifth time in North America, the event brings together four focused exhibitions: the Plastics Recycling World Expo, Compounding World Expo, Plastics Extrusion World Expo and Polymer Testing World Expo.

By registering in advance, visitors will receive free admission to all four exhibitions, featuring more than 300 suppliers, plus free entry to four conference theaters hosting technical presentations, educational seminars and business debates. Attendees and exhibitors will also have the option to buy tickets ($60 each) for a networking party at the Punch Bowl Social on the evening of November 13.

“The event will provide visitors with a great opportunity to meet and compare suppliers from around the world, as well as giving them the chance to learn from business leaders and technical experts in the conference theaters,” said Jenny Amaru, Expos Business Manager at AMI. “When we ran these expos in Cleveland last year, they attracted more than 5,100 visitors, including senior buyers and specifiers from leading extruders, recyclers, compounders, OEMs and brand owners”.

The four expos will occupy the two largest halls at the state-of-the-art Huntington Convention Center in downtown Cleveland.
