Plastic Free World Conference and Expo has rapidly become the must-attend international conference and exhibition for any company looking for new technologies, materials, and solutions to help realize their plastic waste targets and source the latest innovations driving the new circular economy.

The event presents an unbiased opportunity to explore and discuss this highly complex issue with world-leading experts from a number of different industries, and to offer a wide range of new technologies, materials and business practises that will have a positive impact in reducing global plastic pollution, as well as increasing the sustainability of your products. The event attracts more than 1,200 attendees from the entire supply chain including major manufacturers, brand owners, retailers, materials experts, circular economy experts, government organizations, NGOs, the recycling industry, and the plastics sector to engage in discussions that will help reduce waste plastic in the environment.

In 2021 the event will take place in-person at Koelnmesse on the 10th and 11th of November and will be held alongside The Greener Manufacturing Show. As well as six targeted conference tracks, Plastic Free World will now include a free-to-attend exhibition featuring more than 150 companies leading the way forward in producing new materials, packaging solutions, manufacturing technologies, and new ways to use plastic waste as a valuable manufacturing resource for a wide range of industries and applications.

With ever-evolving regulations on single-use plastics and increasing global urgency to find new solutions that will address the global plastic waste challenge - particularly in light of 2020’s pandemic perhaps delaying or derailing many sustainability goals and objectives - this is your opportunity to get back on track and connect and exchange the latest innovations to enact meaningful change.
