IMD Expo - website images By registering in advance, visitors will receive free admission to the exhibition plus free entry to its three conference theatres. One of these will focus on the future of molding, another will cover plastic product design, and the third will be a training theater hosting practical seminars. Attendees and exhibitors will also have the option to buy tickets for a networking party on the evening of March 16.

The exhibition and its conferences are being organized by Crain‘s Global Polymer Group, which is the publisher of Plastics News magazine, and by AMI, the publisher of Injection World magazine. Both companies have extensive experience of organizing conferences and exhibitions for the international polymer industry. The headline sponsor of the expo is M Holland.
