ITEC Again Surpasses High Expectations

If you were unable to attend, you missed a lot!  The show floor sold out – there were 101 booths. Exhibitors and speakers alike came from throughout the world to participate. Attendee registration climbed from 2014 attendance and onsite registrations continued even through the last day of the show.  The 70+ presentations in the technical program included Unit Operations Workshops covering Tire Materials, Modeling, Heavy Machinery, Consumer Information, Testing, Production Processes, a Recycling Workshop and a special group of programs celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Banbury® Mixer. 

The presentations are available for purchase in the Rubber & Plastics News Data Store.  Learn more about the conference on the website.

Many thanks to our ITEC attendees, speakers, exhibitors and sponsors - we couldn’t have had such a great show without your support. We look forward to seeing you again in 2018.
