IAPD Events

IAPD Annual Convention

The IAPD Annual Convention is the only place you can meet with the people who make, distribute, specify and purchase semi-finished performance plastic stock shapes, fabricated parts and pipe, valves and fittings. We'll bring them all together in historic Washington, D.C. October 1-4, 2018, making this the most cost-effective marketing opportunity for your company.

IAPD Leadership Development Conference

Every spring, IAPD members, committee volunteers and those who are interested in being more involved in the association meet for a three-day Leadership Development Conference. During this important event, the focus is on the strategic direction of the association and the plastics industry.


IAPD Women in Plastics

The IAPD Women in Plastics group hosts regional events to outstanding reviews from the participants. Each half-day educational workshop will feature two speakers, interactive networking activities, lively group discussion and an opportunity to meet industry peers and build business relationships. Women AND men are welcome to attend. We look forward to seeing you at one or more of these popular events!

Regional Golf Tournaments

Join other IAPD members (and future members, too!) at one of our upcoming regional golf tournaments. You will have a great time playing golf for a great cause: The IAPD Charitable Foundation, which awards scholarships each year to deserving students.
