Hear from Our Team

We know attendee time is valuable and we want to make it quick and efficient for them to connect with people that can help them improve their business.

- Jim Callari, Editorial Director, Plastics Technology

There are currently no major plastics processing events serving the Midwest, which is the hub of the industry. Research to our readers and advertisers has strongly encouraged us to launch this type of event in this location.

- Ryan Delahanty Publisher, Plastics Technology

To enable attendees to see all the suppliers they need to as efficiently as possible, the show will be organized by pavilions for major process and product categories, including an Amerimold pavilion for mold makers and builders.

- Allison Kline Miller, Director of Events, Gardner Business Media
