Plastics Recycling Expo (pre) is a launch exhibition and conference specifically for plastics recycling professionals. It will bring together key players from the plastics and recycling sectors in order to learn, network and capitalise on the business opportunities plastic recycling offers.

Why now?

10 million metric tonnes of post-consumer plastic waste is buried in landfill every year across Europe. The quantity of post-consumer plastics recycled or recovered has increased every year since 1990. However, the rates still lag well behind other products such as newspaper which stands at 80%. With recent restrictions on landfill and increased demand for sustainability, there is a huge amount of work to be done to achieve parity and there are substantial business opportunities available.

The place to talk business

Network with a broad cross section of the industry and meet decision makers from the public and private sector. This two day exhibition and strategic conference will unite specialists from design/manufacturing, brand owners from the packaging, automotive, medical and consumer goods sectors and those already involved in plastics recycling (waste management companies, local authorities, government and plastic collection, recycling and reuse companies) to conduct business and discuss the future of plastics recycling.

pre will take place at the Telford International Centre (Telford being the heart of UK plastics manufacturing) and will be co-located with pdm, the UK’s No. 1 annual exhibition for the UK plastics industry.
