61st Annual IAPD Convention and Plastics Expo

Save the dates now and plan on visiting the Windy City next October!
What's the difference between the Showcase and the Expo?
The IAPD Convention and Expo Committee has identified two distinct formats for the last day of the convention: Showcase and Expo.
|The Showcase is intended to be primarily for companies
in the plastics industry. Programs and services will be offered to help
your business operations, expand your connections and to celebrate
plastics. The Showcase model is offered in a
more "destination" location, such as South Beach, Miami and San Diego.
||The Expo is held in a major
metropolitan area, such as Chicago, IL, USA. The purpose of the Expo is
to attract engineers, material specifiers, designers, OEMS, MROs and
other end users of plastics. During the Expo years, we focus on
educating this audience about the power of plastics for their
applications. Of course, this end-user audience is welcome to attend the
Showcase as well, but the programming and focus of the event will be
more focused on the plastics industry.
The best connection for growing your business.
