PLASTEC-WestComing to the Anaheim Convention Center, located in Anaheim, California, Feb. 11 through 13, PLASTEC West offers engineers and executives an opportunity to meet and improve their plastics and processing capabilities. Attendees will meet leaders specializing in plastics and polymers, automation, molds and dies, and additive manufacturing.

The event offers more education than ever before. The 12-track conference program offers something for all attendees – from R&D and design engineers to regulatory and quality professionals. The new educational formats for 2020 include Lightning Workshops, Tech Talk Panels, roundtable discussion, an exclusive keynote presentation, networking events and more. This year’s conference program was designed to meet the needs of professionals in advanced design and manufacturing.

A unique opportunity for conference attendees only, the Tech Talk Panels present a live forum for experts to discuss current product development issues and enhancements, complete with subsequent Q&As. The panels include the following:

  • Overcoming Challenges When Progressing from Prototype to Production Tooling
  • Additive Manufacturing: The Slow & Steady March
    to Production
  • Criteria for Choosing the Right Material for Your Device

Another new experience – the Meet the Speaker Lounge – provides the opportunity to ask those burning questions attendees are left with after participating in a session. For the 2020 event, a meeting lounge outside the conference rooms has been added. This will be a place to meet that favorite speaker, network, ask questions and leave with valuable contacts.
