Event organisers Crain Communications took the decision to officially launch the new Plastics Recycling Expo (PRE), in the region in 2014 following the resounding success of its partner exhibition, PDM and a joint bid by Meet Telford & Shropshire and The International Centre, Telford.
Plastics Recycling Expo (PRE) will be held in Telford at The International Centre from 18th to 19th June 2014 and will be co-located next to the existing PDM exhibition.
Specifically designed for professionals working within the plastics industry, PRE 2014 will celebrate the real value of the plastics recycling industry in the UK. The event will bring together key players from the sectors including waste management companies and local authorities and will provide unique opportunities to build business relationships, network, and learn from leading lights within the industry.
Steve Crowhurst, UK Managing Director of Crain Communications, said: “Being in the heart of the UK’s manufacturing region, Telford as a destination is an absolutely natural choice to host this dedicated event. The support we have received from the teams at Meet Telford & Shropshire and The International Centre, Telford for previous events has been second-to-none which is why we are confident that launching this new and innovative event here will be another huge success story,” he concluded.
Sarah Bird, Business Tourism Manager for Meet Telford & Shropshire, the official Convention Bureau for the region, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Telford has been chosen to officially launch this brand new exhibition. With a global reputation in plastics and advanced manufacturing, central location, leading convention facilities and world famous visitor package, Telford offers the ideal home for this event. We very much look forward to working with the organisers over the next twelve months and as part of our Event Support Package our Convention team will be developing an international welcome programme to ensure delegates attending PRE from around the globe enjoy the very best of Telford & Shropshire’s world famous culture and hospitality.”
Tom Gray, Chief Executive of the Southwater Event Group, commented: “With a close partnership with the PDM team, we are thrilled to win the PRE exhibition and support the continued growth of PDM. The International Centre is a natural choice for national exhibition organisers as we tick all the event boxes from accessibility, on-site hotels, to extensive ground floor exhibition halls which sit adjacent to our conference and seminar suites – perfect for visitor flow. And, as a centrally located UK venue, we offer a great location for visitors arriving nationally and from overseas. We look forward to welcoming the Show back in 2014”.
