What's the difference between the Showcase and the Expo?

The IAPD Convention and Expo Committee has identified two distinct formats for the last day of the convention: Showcase and Expo.

Plastics Showcase


Plastics Expo

The Showcase is intended to be primarily for companies in the plastics industry. Programs and services will be offered to help your business operations, expand your connections and to celebrate plastics. The Showcase model is offered in odd-numbered years and is in a more "destination" location, such as South Beach, Miami and San Diego.   The Expo is held in even-numbered years and in a major metropolitan area, such as Chicago, IL, USA. The purpose of the Expo is to attract engineers, material specifiers, designers, OEMS, MROs and other end users of plastics. During the Expo years, we focus on educating this audience about the power of plastics for their applications. Of course, this end-user audience is welcome to attend the Showcase as well, but the programming and focus of the event will be more focused on the plastics industry.

The best connection for growing your business.

Get new business leads, see current customers, increase ROI and create new demand at the IAPD Plastics Showcase on Thursday, September 24, 2015.

The IAPD Plastics Showcase is the only place you can meet with the people who make, distribute, specify and purchase semi-finished plastic stock shapes, fabricated parts and pipe, valves and fittings. We’ll bring them together, in stunning downtown San Diego, making this the most cost-effective marketing opportunity for your company.
