Out with the old, in with connecX

Why Exhibit at connecX?


Hundreds of performance plastics professionals from across the globe join together each fall for connecX, uniting the plastics distribution supply chain in a way that’s rarely seen.

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, 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.


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

IAPD’s 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.

connecX, streamlines the way suppliers and customers connect at the IAPD Annual Convention. We’ve taken what you already enjoy about private meetings and traditional trade shows and built in even more opportunities to meet with new and existing connections, making connecX an invaluable marketing and relationship building opportunity for your company.
