ANTEC® 2022 Returns As In-Person Event

Will Also include Virtual Component

SPE is hosting ANTEC® 2022 in-person, co-located with PLASTEC® South, an Informa event, in Charlotte, NC, June 14-16. PLASTEC® South is a comprehensive annual plastic design and manufacturing event for plastics professionals, suppliers and buyers to discover innovation, engineer new technology, and to expand their networks. ANTEC® 2022 will also include an online component.

“Our attendees are thrilled that we’re returning to in-person ANTEC® in 2022,” said Patrick Farrey, SPE’s CEO. “And by co-locating with PLASTEC® South, we will have even more ways for SPE members and plastics professionals to all finally see each other again face-to-face.”

The presentations at the in-person event will be selected/invited based on the applicability of their topic across a wide cross-section of the plastics value chain. Presentation/speaker selection, which will occur through a paper submission/review process and/or through invitation, will be considered based on the quality, relevance and newness of any research done in the field as well as the speaker’s position in the plastics industry. Technical Papers that are not selected for in-person ANTEC® will be recorded and delivered virtually over a schedule that will be announced soon.

The tentative schedule for in-person ANTEC® 2022 is as follows:

Day 1 (June 14)

10:00 AM – 1:00 PM SPE Leadership Roundtable
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM ANTEC Keynotes
