The Plastics Recycling Show Middle East & Africa (PRS ME&A) returns to the Dubai World Trade Centre in Dubai, United Arab Emirates from 10 to 12 September 2024. The three-day exhibition and conference enjoyed a very successful launch in 2023 and is the only event in the region specifically dedicated to plastics recycling.

“The Middle East and Africa have seen rapid growth in recycling in recent years. And Dubai is at the epicentre,” said Taher Patrawala, Managing Director of Media Fusion. “We brought the PRS brand to the region last year with the vision of advancing the industry. The interest garnered in our first event has shown us just how vast the industry is in this region and how the plastics recycling industry will impact sustainability as a whole.” 

“PRS Middle East & Africa brings together a wide range of international exhibitors, more than 60 leading speakers and thousands of visitors from across the region,” added Matt Barber. “We are looking forward to an even bigger event this year.”

The Plastics Recycling Show Middle East & Africa is designed for plastics recycling professionals. It brings together key players from the plastics and recycling sectors to showcase innovative technology, share best practice, network and do business.

The latest trends in the plastics recycling sector will be explored in depth in the conference, which provides a holistic view of the whole plastic recycling value chain, drawing together legislators, major brands, recyclers and the plastics recycling and manufacturing industry. International experts will address key themes including the circular economy, regulations, challenges, opportunities, innovations, technologies and trends, and share insights and experiences from across the sector promoting the sustainable use of plastics.
