This week's PRS Europe (PRSE) plastics recycling event in Brussels has been canceled following today's bomb attacks in the city's airport and on its metro system.
The two-day event had been due to kick off March 22 at the Brussels Expo venue. The city's airport has been closed until 6 a.m. March 23, while all other public transport had been shutdown for the foreseeable future.
In a statement Steve Crowhurst, managing director of Crain Communications Inc. U.K., which organizes the show, said: “Due to the serious events that took place in Brussels this morning, the organizers of the PRSE show have had no other option but to cancel the show.
“The safety and security of our exhibitors, visitors, staff and suppliers remains our absolute priority.
“The situation in Brussels remains fluid and we will provide further updates as and when we have more information.”

Crain Communications, which publishes Plastics News and Plastics News Europe, had originally set PRS Europe for late November, but rescheduled following the terror attack in Paris, which involved searches for suspects in the Brussels suburbs.
