Illinois’ transition to Phase 5 of their Illinois recovery plan and a sharp surge in mold making and plastic purchases pave the way for successful Amerimold, extrusion and injection molding shows

The parallel Amerimold plastics events, the Extrusion Conference and the Molding Conference, all taking place September 21-23 in Rosemont, IL, today announced their trust and excitement for the emerging North American plastics market.

According to recent reports from Gardner Intelligence, the mold making market is booming, with notable increases in orders and production across the continent. In fact, the May edition of the Gardner Business Index: Mold Making recorded the highest value ever recorded at 62.3. In addition to positive market news, Illinois Governor JB Pritzker announced that Illinois is moving into Phase 5 of its Restore Illinois plan, which removes all congregation size restrictions and paves the way for a thriving series of shows in September.

“We are pleased that the COVID numbers in Illinois have steadily declined and that Governor Pritzker has pushed the state forward in his ‘Restore Illinois’ plan,” said Ryan Delahanty, editor of MoldMaking Technology and Plastics Technology and executive vice president of the Sales at Gardner Business Media. “The mold making and plastics market are hotter than ever now, so we are delighted to be able to offer the industry the shows it needs at exactly the right time.”

Registration for all three events is currently open. Each show features an expanded three-day schedule of educational events, networking opportunities, and access to exhibitors from across the plastics manufacturing supply chain. Participation in the Amerimold is currently free if you register during the early bird period, which ends on August 20th. As a special benefit, participants in the Molding and Extrusion Conferences receive free entry to all co-location events (Extrusion 2021, Molding 2021 and Amerimold), which ensures the most robust and diverse pool of participants in the history of the fair.
