Bethel, CT, U.S.A., September 14, 2017—The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) is now accepting abstract, paper submissions and presentations for the SPE ANTEC® 2018 Conference. The submission deadline is December 15, 2017. The entire submission and review process is conducted online.
In addition to the traditional program comprised of technical papers, there will be a Technical Marketing track. This track will be organized into sessions focused on specific topical areas. These sessions are intended to be a forum where new products, processes, and services can be effectively shared with ANTEC attendees in a timely manner. Candidates for these sessions should represent new offerings with market entry having occurred in the last two years or in an advanced stage of development with commercialization planned in the near future. Older products and processes will be considered as long as they bring value to ANTEC attendees.
No paper is required, only a presentation that will be subject to review and approval by the ANTEC Technical Program Committee. The presentations are to be directed at a technical audience and are expected to tell a story that includes, for example, the problem the new technology is solving, the economic benefit, and the ease of implementation. Especially important is data and analyses that support the claims and benefit for the new technologies being presented. Technical Marketing presentations will be published in the ANTEC proceedings and therefore should not include company confidential information.
“Mark Spalding, The ANTEC Advisory Committee and I believe much interest, excitement, and value will be generated by the Technical Marketing sessions and we encourage participation.” said Joe Golba, ANTEC Technical Program Advisory Committee member. “The presentation deadline is December 15, 2017, so there is still plenty of time for people to prepare to showcase their new products, processes, and services and make the new Technical Marketing track at ANTEC 2018 a success.”
