PRE Events

Throughout the year, PRE organises several high quality events and conferences involving the actors from the entire plastics industry value chain. With these events PRE hopes to address the most important trending issues, exchange valuable ideas and underline innovative opportunities on behalf of bettering the industry itself and helping Europe reach its recycling targets.

Plastics Recyclers Annual Meeting

Every year Plastics Recyclers Annual Meeting gathers around 200 delegates and actors across the entire plastics value chain – from recyclers and plastics producers, to various authorities, researchers and academics. The conference investigates the scope of the latest opportunities and challenges that the plastics recycling industry faces and features high-level speakers from the sector.
