AKRON—Rubber and Plastics News is joining with its sister publication Plastics News to launch a new event from two existing ones. The 2019 Plastics and Rubber in Automotive Conference will be held Jan. 14-15 at the Novi Collection Showplace in Novi, Mich., and promises to explore the latest technologies, trends and ideas behind vehicle development in plastics and rubber.
The conference will kick off with a joint session featuring speakers from Ford Motor Co., the Center for Automotive Research and Armada Corporate Intelligence before breaking into separate plastics and rubber conferences, held adjacent to each other and allowing attendees to choose sessions in both rooms. The day will end with a presentation on Manufacturing 4.0 trends and issues.
Together, these conferences will provide a firm footing for plastics and rubber processors and suppliers working in the always enterprising and sometimes challenging automotive space.
Registration is open. You can find the latest agenda at rubbernews.com/auto, and look for updates and additions as the conference draws closer.
Held during the opening week of the North American International Auto Show, the conference also will offer attendees discounted tickets to attend dinner presentations at the 2019 Automotive News World Congress.
