New SPE Conference to Focus on Interdisciplinary Collaboration

October 30, 2017

The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) is gearing up to put on another great conference this November. Last year the SPE put on their first conference in Rhode Island which drew over 100 participants. This year event takes place at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit (ranked third in U.S. design schools) from November 6 – 8th. Attendees are expected to include engineers, designers, molders, and educators. Registration costs $395 for SPE members, $595 for non-members, and if you are an educator or student the price drops to $195. To register for the conference please visit here.


College of Creative Studies Detroit Campus.

Topics will include augmented and virtual reality, biomimicry, 3D printing, future of mobility, innovation management and design thinking, start-up advice, education trends, intellectual property protection, sustainability, and in-space manufacturing. Basically, everything and anything you need to know about the plastic business.


Real. Relateable. Relevant.

And if you want more after the 3 day conference, extend your stay for the SPE’s 47th annual Automotive Innovation Awards dinner and gala in Livonia, Michigan, just outside of Detroit! Unfortunately, Beyond won’t be able to attend this year’s conference. If you or your company attend please drop us a note and let us know how it was!
