Plastics design show switches Excel for Telford

The Plastics Design and Moulding Exhibition (PDM) will move back to Telford in 2013 after a two-year run at Excel London.

The trade fair returns to the Telford International Centre on 18-19 June and will feature a bigger exhibition space and a series of paid-for and free seminars, workshops and training sessions. The show is organised by Crain Communications.

The plastics design show originally relocated to Excel London in 2011 to co-locate with the new ProductDesign + Innovation conference. As previously reported in EN, the move was expected to see a reduction in exhibition numbers.

“An event like PDM shows the UK plastics industry off at its best and we are very excited about what we can achieve in Telford with our event partners in 2013,” event director Steve Crowhurst said. “We are committed to delivering a fresh audience for our exhibitors and quality content for our visitors.”

Content for the seminar sessions is being developed with PDM’s recently signed partners including the British Plastics Federation (BPF), the Gauge and Toolmakers Association (GTMA), the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), the Polymer Training and Innovation Centre, the Polymer Machinery Manufacturers and Distributors Association (PMMDA) and Smithers Rapra.

Crain Communications pointed to Telford’s reputation as ‘plastics valley’ along with its wealth in polymer-related companies as key reasons behind its choice of venue. The International Centre’s refurbished and expanded event space, proximity to the motorway and free parking were also highlighted.

The PDM trade show first launched in Telford in 2005 and is expected to attract more than 100 exhibitors.

“With the area’s strong history in the polymer sector we were thrilled to launch the event in 2005 and now look forward to working with Crain Communications in making the event a huge success going forward,” said CEO of Telford venue owner Southwater Event Group Tom Gray.
