On-going uncertainty created by Coronavirus pandemic has led to the decision to delay the Plastics Extrusion World Expo and its co-located shows until 1-2 June 2021.

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”.
