Supplier Meetings

IAPD’s leadership is focused on offering time during the convention for networking, collaboration on key industry issues and growing the market for performance plastics.

To best provide these opportunities, the IAPD Board of Directors strongly encourages the participation of all convention delegates in the Welcome Reception, General Session, Education Sessions and the IAPD Plastics Showcase.

Specific blocks of time are designated for supplier/distributor meetings to facilitate strong participation in convention events as well as provide as much business networking and relationship development as possible during our short time together.
