A new sight at Plast-Ex this year will be the CPIA Solutions Centre in Hall 2. The Canadian Plastics Industry Association and various industry partners will be exhibiting in the Solutions Centre, which will be mostly built of PVC pipe.
Plast-Ex takes place May 3 to 6 at the International Centre, Mississuaga, ON. Over 500 companies will be represented at the show.
"Our pavilion will offer a one-stop-shop of service to the industry through the participation of organizations like the Canadian Plastics Sector Council, the Society of Plastics Engineers, and the Canadian Plastics Training Centre," says Serge Lavoie, CPIA president.
"We wanted to showcase how the plastics industry is coming together to provide business, training and technology solutions capable of creating a more competitive and dynamic environment."
The Solutions Centre will also house Plasti-Lab, the popular educational science program organized by CPIA’s Environment and Plastics Industry Council (EPIC). Having Plasti-Lab at the show will give the industry a chance to see the work CPIA is doing to educate Canada’s youth about the plastics industry, explains Karen Wolfe, director of communications for CPIA.
The association will also bus school children from local schools to the show to experience Plasti-Lab.
IPEX Inc. (Toronto) has donated pipe to build the Solutions Centre.
