SCHAUMBURG, Ill.—In an industry that seems to be constantly changing with the technology around it, staying ahead of the game is key.
It was with this in mind that Rubber & Plastics News, PolyOne and R.D. Abbott helped to organize the inaugural Healthcare Elastomers Conference, held May 21-22 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel in Schaumburg.
Bernard Powell of PolyOne and Rick Ziebell of R.D. Abbott served as the event co-chairs, overseeing an agenda that featured more than 15 presentations and covered a range of topics including materials development to medical device design. Those in attendance had the opportunity to network with speakers and guests during a special cocktail reception, sponsored by Trinseo, and meet with industry representatives during a tabletop expo.
Rubber & Plastics News is dedicated to providing professional development and networking opportunities for those working across a variety of rubber industry sectors, and the Healthcare Elastomers Conference is just one example. Several other conferences planned for this year:
- The International Latex Conference, Aug. 6-7 in Fairlawn, Ohio;
- 2019 ITEC in Focus: Green Tire, Sept. 25-26 in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio; and
- 2019 Hose Manufacturers Conference, Nov. 12-13 in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.
