The Plastics Recycling Show Europe (PRSE), the pan-European exhibition and conference dedicated to plastics recycling, returns to the RAI Amsterdam, The Netherlands on 10-11 May 2023, expanding into two halls for the first time (Halls 11 and 12). Visitor registration for the free-to-attend event is now open.
“PRSE was such a success in 2022 with record numbers of exhibitors and visitors,” said Matt Barber, Global Events Director at Crain Communications. “We are seeing the event grow even more dramatically this year, with a great mix of both established and first-time exhibitors.
“The PRSE exhibition and conference is the focal point of plastics recycling in Europe,” says Ton Emans, Plastics Recyclers Europe President. “It is the perfect place to discover all the latest technical innovations and commercial developments, and stay up to date with the legislative landscape for the circular use of plastics.”
