Tick Tock: You’re on the Clock if You Want to Speak at Extrusion 2022
The clock is ticking, but there is still time to participate as a speaker in Plastics Technology’s Extrusion 2022 Conference.
This year’s event will be held Dec. 6-8 at the Omni Charlotte Hotel in Charlotte, N.C., and we are now accepting titles and abstracts for presentations. You have until June 24 to submit your title and abstract to be considered as a presenter for the first technical conference devoted to all things extrusion.
Please go here to begin. Then click on Continue to Application to begin the process. From there, you will be prompted to submit your Title, Summary, Event Type and Abstract (the Summary and Abstract can be the same). Then you will be asked to submit information on the contact and the presenter (they can also be the same).
Event Type refers to the session in which you would like to speak. As with previous Extrusion Conferences, we will have morning General Sessions, in which presentations will be applicable to all extrusion processors; followed by three afternoon concurrent sessions on Film/Sheet; Pipe/Profile/Tubing; and Compounding. Please use the Event Type dropdown to pick among these four sessions.
Launched in 2015, this annual event is a get-together for some of the most prominent experts and technically savvy minds in extrusion processing. The Extrusion Conference program is aimed at helping you get a handle of everyday problems and processing hiccups so that you can better utilize existing assets.
