Supplier Meetings

The 57th IAPD Annual Convention & Plastics Showcase in Miami, FL, USA, is nearing and we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight some key events on the schedule and the open times for supplier meetings. As always, we hope to maximize attendance at the association’s key events.

The association’s leadership is focused on using the time at the convention to promote networking, collaboration on key industry issues and commitment to growing the market for distributed plastics. To help meet these goals, the IAPD Board of Directors is strongly encouraging participation in the Welcome Reception, General Session, educational sessions, Design Competition and Luncheon and the Plastics Showcase.

In order to facilitate this participation, as well as provide for as much business networking and development to be accomplished during the short time together, specific open times have been designated where meeting rooms may be reserved directly with IAPD for supplier/distributor meetings. For further information on hosting a meeting room for your company, please contact Laurie Warren, or call +(913) 345-1005.
