The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) and the Society of the Plastics Industry (SPI) will collaborate sales and marketing of exhibit space for next year’s SPE ANTEC 2010 conference.

 

According to Lesley Kyle, SPE’s senior event manager, the partnership – combined with other measures to expand sales of booth space – will result in a trade show with between 200 and 300 exhibiting companies.

 

 “Because ANTEC is the world’s largest plastics technical conference, attracting 750 original, peer-reviewed presentations for its 2009 edition, it tends to overshadow the co-located trade show,” Kyle said. “Yet in 2010 the exhibit portion of ANTEC will be the largest plastics trade show in the U.S., providing industry professionals with their best opportunity to inspect new equipment and instrumentation, discover new applications for plastics materials, and meet face-to-face with current and prospective suppliers.”

 

Also new to the show this year is an online floor plan, available at this link. The interactive plan enables prospective exhibitors to see which companies have already taken space and which space is still available.

 

ANTEC 2010 will take place May 16-20 in Orlando, Fla.
