Alternative to trade shows, large conferences in Eastern Europe

Article-Alternative to trade shows, large conferences in Eastern Europe

‘Thematic customer meetings’ is the title given to the new program of small, local meetings offered by Eastern and Central European Business Development (ECEBD; Budapest, Hungary), which hopes the format will help match suppliers and potential plastics processing customers in smaller settings than typically found on the floor of a trade show or at large conferences.

ECEBD plans to organize 40 of these meetings this year in Central and Eastern Europe and in Turkey. The group will convene meetings between resin suppliers, compounders, masterbatch producers, machine manufacturers, and from 10-20 plastics processors in each local event. The suppliers will be guaranteed that the processors attending are from a particular segment of the plastics industry, (for example, wire and cable, packaging or B&C).
