Out with the old, in with connecX

Why Exhibit at connecX?

connecX is the only place you can meet with a critical mass of your customers — the experts who distribute, specify and purchase semi-finished performance plastics stock shapes, fabricated parts and pipe, valves and fittings — all in one place. Imagine having a full year’s worth of sales meetings with your most valuable customers all in one week: that’s connecX.

IAPD brings the performance plastics distribution supply chain together, making this event the most cost-effective marketing and relationship-strengthening opportunity for your company.  

What is the difference between the traditional trade show and connecX?

connecX combines the traditional elements of a trade show with walk-by traffic, with the demand for more one-on-one private meetings to discuss business.

IAPD gives you connecX, the solution to streamline the way suppliers and customers connect at the IAPD Annual Convention. IAPD’s connecX takes what you already enjoy about private meetings and a traditional trade show and builds on it, so there are even more opportunities to meet with new and existing connections.

Private Meeting Rooms

connecX is an opportune time for substantive meetings with your business partners. To better facilitate your success we have added time slots to the schedule of events for these important meetings.

Meeting Rooms are Available for a Full Day Rental and Include:
  • Your company name listed on the official IAPD schedule.
  • Sign with your company logo outside the meeting room door.
  • Lessen your administrative burden with discount packages for food and beverage and audio/visual equipment (for an additional fee) from the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina. IAPD will handle the logistics for you!
