AMI has announced that its four focused plastics industry exhibitions, which were scheduled to take place at the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland, Ohio, USA on November 4-5, 2020, have now been postponed to November 3-4, 2021. On-going uncertainty created by 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, the venue, local government and health authorities. It has now become clear that we will not be able to run the show this year, so we have taken the decision to postpone the event to November 3-4, 2021”.
AMI announced the decision to reschedule the expos on 11 August. Andy Beevers, Events Director at the company, said: “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. We have continued to receive fantastic support and understanding from the industry during this process and are now all looking to forward to a safe and successful return to Cleveland next year”.
Admission to the four expos and their five conference theaters will continue to be free of charge and registration will re-open next year. Visitors who have already registered for the 2020 event will be able to simply renew their free tickets for the 2021 exhibitions.
