SPE TPO Automotive Engineered Polyolefins Conference



The World's Leading Automotive Engineered Polyolefins Forum


18th-Annual SPE TPO Automotive Engineered Polyolefins Conference




Date: Oct. 2-5, 2016
Location: Troy Marriott (Detroit Suburbs), Michigan. U.S.A.

About the SPE TPO Automotive Engineered Polyolefins Conference (Auto TPO)

Since 1998, the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE®), leading global OEMs and Tier Suppliers, as well as the TPO supply chain have pooled their resources to create the SPE Automotive TPO Global Conference, a dynamic, interactive, and cost-effective learning experience. The show highlights the importance of rigid and flexible polyolefins (TPOs) as well as a growing range of thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) and thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) throughout the automobile and in other forms of ground transportation. The event has become the world’s leading automotive engineered polyolefins forum and typically draws over 600 key decision makers and some of the world's foremost authorities on transportation polyolefin applications, economics, and market trends. As such, it provides excellent networking opportunities with key members of the automotive TPO, TPE, & TPV supply chain, and the opportunity to learn about designing lighter, less costly automotive components using the latest technologies and applications for these versatile materials. Companies interested in exhibiting at or sponsoring the event should contact: Dr. Sassan Tarahomi or David Okonski, whose contact information is below.
