HOUSTON (ICIS)–Latin American plastics conference PLASTIMAGEN has been pushed back to January 2021, from November 2020, due to the global coronavirus pandemic, organisers said on Thursday.

The 23rd PLASTIMAGEN event will take place from 11-14 January in Mexico City, Mexico, at the same venue, the Citibanamex Centre.

Representatives of PLASTIMAGEN organiser Tarsus Mexico said such an event at the beginning of the new year could jump-start the economic activity of the plastics industry.

“Strategically postponing the shows to January 2021 allows us to not only meet our commitment to the Latin American region’s industry by continuing to deliver a much-needed show next year, but also ensures we offer the highest quality, safe experience it expects from PLASTIMAGEN,” said Paul St Amour, vice president Latin America of Tarsus Mexico.

He continued, “…as a trade platform, the show will play a vital role in reigniting and driving the economic recovery of the region’s plastic industry, as we move through the post coronavirus (Covid-19) recovery phase.”

According to the statement, PLASTIMAGEN participants will include 870 companies and 1,600 brands from 27 countries.
