New for 2020 - SPE Offers Childcare at ANTEC®

DANBURY, CT—January 28, 2020: ANTEC® 2020 attendees will no longer have to miss out on ANTEC® or any ANTEC® events because they don’t have childcare. New this year, SPE is offering childcare on premises at the Marriott Rivercenter in San Antonio each day during the largest, most respected and well-known technical conference in the plastics industry.

Using this service allows attendees to participate in sessions and networking events with confidence and peace of mind knowing their children are being cared for by experienced and dedicated childcare professionals.

Addressing how challenging it is for parents to attend events while trying to coordinate babysitting, SPE has contracted with Northside Sitters Club, an agency that provides onsite childcare. Northside Sitters Club has been in service for over 43 years and provides qualified babysitters – those who have undergone extensive background checks, are CPR and First Aid certified, have years of experience caring for children and provide a loving, safe and fun environment.

ANTEC® 2020 is taking place March 29-April 2 and childcare during ANTEC® will be available during the following times:

  • Sunday, March 29: 4pm – 8pm
  • Monday, March 30: 8am – 8pm
  • Tuesday, March 31: 8am – 8pm
  • Wednesday, April 1: 8am – 5pm
  • Thursday, April 2: 8am – 12pm

There is no additional cost for attendees to use this service. Attendees can secure their childcare by registering in advance. To register for ANTEC® childcare, please visit
