Change continues to be a theme in the automotive industry, with advances in development spurred by shifts in consumer trends, federal and state standards, mobility features, lightweighting, autonomous and smart vehicles, emerging technologies and much more.
In this environment, plastics and rubber systems and parts suppliers must cope with a quickened development pace and the shifting needs of OEMs and consumers. Two of the leading publications in these industries, Plastics News and Rubber and Plastics News, have teamed to bring you a major event that will elevate these discussions and help move the needle on change.
Plastics and Rubber in Automotive 2019, to be held Jan. 14-15, 2019, at the Suburban Collection Showcase in Novi, Mich., offers two great conferences in one: Plastics News’ Plastics in Automotive and Rubber and Plastics News’ Rubber in Automotive.
Both conferences will be held simultaneously in the same location, allowing you to attend sessions at both events and meet participants and exhibitors across the plastics and rubber industries. The conferences will have separate agendas and meet in adjacent conference venues, enhancing value through joint interaction and networking.
Held during Industry Preview Days at the North American International Auto Show, Plastics and Rubber in Automotive will be an important addition to the week’s activities. Only 30 minutes from downtown Detroit, the Suburban Collection Showcase is a perfect venue to be close to the action without having to face traffic and parking headaches.
