AKRON-Rubber & Plastics News will produce four international conferences and exhibits this year to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas that increase the combined knowledge of the rubber industry.
The goals of each conference will be accomplished in three ways: First, through presentations of current technical information and business applications; second, through world-class exhibitors sharing their latest technology and innovations; and third, through informal interaction and networking opportunities.
The conferences are:
* The second annual International Silicone Conference, organized jointly with Gayson SDI, May 7-8, Hilton Akron/Fairlawn, Ohio.
* The Automotive Elastomers Conference, a new symposium for the automotive rubber parts business, organized jointly with Cooper-Standard Automotive, June 18-19, Hyatt Regency, Dearborn, Mich.
* The fifth annual International Latex Conference, organized jointly with Akron Dispersions, July 30-31, Hilton Akron/Fairlawn.
* ITEC, the fifth International Tire Exhibition and Conference, held concurrently with the Tire Society annual meeting, Sept. 10-12, John S. Knight Center, Akron.
