Technical Sessions Overview


2018 Conference Schedule

2018 Speaker/Author Release Form - TBA

The SPE TPO Automotive Engineered Polyolefins Conference typically draws over 800 attendees from 20 countries on 4 continents who are vitally interested in learning about the latest in rigid and elastomeric TPO as well as TPE and TPV technologies.
