WTH exhibited at Compounding World Expo 2018 in Essen/Germany

(red) - A new trade fair format that has convinced the professional world: For the first time the Compounding World Expo 2018 (CWE 2018) took place on 27 and 28 June 2018 in Essen/Germany. The visitors were impressed by the free trade fair event with the also free seminars and industry debates especially for the plastic compounding industry of the world.

WTH GmbH was also represented on the two days in the Ruhr-River metropolis: despite the very special "trade fair concept", Both Dr. Silke Nicola Trzaska and Leif Ole Jahnke on the WTH booth had to do plenty. The trade fair time was filled with different as well as intensive discussions about our service portfolio for the compounding industry.

Because the WTH product portfolio covers virtually all areas and types of polymer compounds, including polyolefins, PVC, engineering plastics, styrenics, TPE and masterbatch, as well as plastics recycling, the target group and format of the CWE 2018 is ideally suited to its core business.

This confirmed a trend that was already noticeable at other fairs. Especially the smaller specialist events are characterized by a high content quality of the technical discussions. Obviously, the "manageable framework" of smaller events promotes both the content and intensity of each conversation.

Unlike at the major trade fair events in the industry, specialist topics were discussed much more intensively and true projects/actions were agreed that point to sustainable follow-up business.

Outlook: The organizer will organize the next event of this kind in the USA in 2019 before the next CWE-2020 in Europe will take place again in Essen. WTH will be exhibiting at FAKUMA 2018 in Friedrichshafen from 16 to 20 October 2018 and from 6 to 8 November at Composites Europe 2018 in Stuttgart.
