NEWTOWN, CT | The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) has reached an agreement with trade show organizer Fira de Barcelona to co-locate the first SPE EUROTEC plastics technical conference with next year’s Equiplast exposition in Barcelona. Originally scheduled for October 2011, EUROTEC will now take place on November 14—15, 2011, the first two days of the five-day Equiplast show, at Barcelona’s Gran Via Exhibition Ctr.
EUROTEC is planning a broad-based technical conference like SPE’s ANTEC annual conference held in North America. There will be several hundred original, peer-reviewed presentations on new developments in these fields of plastics technology: automotive & transportation; engineering properties and structure; extrusion for flexible & rigid packaging; failure analysis and prevention; product and engineering design; medical devices; mold design & rapid tooling; bioplastics; and colors and additives.
