FAIRLAWN, Ohio—When it comes to the International Latex Conference, one thing is certain: You're bound to make a connection.
Whether it's during a conversation at lunch, while grabbing a coffee during a networking break or over drinks at the evening's networking reception, there's a good chance attendees will meet someone new or catch up with friends they haven't seen in a while.
Networking opportunities were built into the agenda for the two-day event, where conference-goers had the chance to gain insights into the latest latex trends during presentations from industry leaders. They also had the opportunity to grow their professional network and showcase their industry knowledge during a latex challenge trivia contest wherein those attending the conference do their best to answer industry-related trivia questions.
Akron Dispersions also hosted a special casino night event during the first day of the conference.
Held biannually and organized jointly by Rubber & Plastics News and Akron Dispersions, this year's event was hosted at Akron/Fairlawn Hilton on Aug. 6 and 7.
RPN hosts several conferences each year, focusing on different sectors of the rubber industry. Upcoming conferences include ITEC in Focus: Green Tire, set for Sept. 25-26, and the Hose Manufacturers Conference, planned for Nov. 12-13. Both events will be held in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.
