SPE Adds Forums to ANTEC 2017 Schedule
The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE), Bethel, Connecticut, is adding more forums to ANTEC 2017, which will take place May 8-10 in Anaheim, California.
On top of the 500+ technology sessions, Industry 4.0 will attract all those involved in the future control and connectivity of the plastic industry’s supply chain, while the Plasticity California Forum will bring together everyone concerned about the ecological impact of manufacturing, recycling and re-using plastic products. With this, SPE’s ANTEC is slated to become a multi-disciplinary event.
ANTEC 2017 also will include “New Technology” forums, plenary and keynote speeches, tutorials for a range of processes and materials, and panel discussions. New this year is a Women’s Networking Breakfast. This panel discussion will be led by women who have made it to the top of the plastics industry. The event will be held on Tuesday morning, May 9.
Other activities include SPE Awards and 75th Anniversary Gala; SPE’s global parts competition “Plastics for Life”; and “The Plastics Race”, a scavenger hunt with a plastics twist. There will also be activities for students and young industry professionals.
