SECOND SPE EUROTEC® PLASTICS TECHNICAL CONFERENCE WILL TAKE PLACE IN JULY 2013 AT LYON, FRANCE

Lyon by Night

Conference in the South of France Will Feature More than 200 Original, Peer-Reviewed Presentations on Materials, Processes, and End-Product Appearance and Design

NEWTOWN, CT, U.S.A., November 26, 2012: The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) has selected Lyon, France as the site of EUROTEC® 2013, a wide-ranging plastics technical conference with more than 200 original, peer-reviewed presentations on such topics as automotive, composites, extrusion, injection molding, and thermoforming.

EUROTEC 2013 will take place July 4-5, 2013 at Lyon’s Cité Congress Exhibition Centre. In addition to the technical presentations, there will be an exhibition with displays by companies representing the entire plastics industry supply chain, including processors, machinery manufacturers, and raw material suppliers.

“After the success of EUROTEC 2011 in Barcelona, SPE continues to extend its outreach to the European plastics community,” said Wim De Vos, CEO of SPE. “In years to come, the continued development of exciting new products and applications in the European marketplace will be reflected in the growth of our EUROTEC conference.”

Lyon is a center for plastics innovation and is the home of a number of plastics training centers, noted Olivier Crave, chair of EUROTEC 2013. “France’s well-known ‘Plastics Valley’ is located northeast of the city and has the highest concentration of plastics converting companies in Europe,” Mr. Crave said. “Visitors to EUROTEC will also enjoy the beauty of the South of France at the most magnificent time of year.”

A leisure program will be available for spouses and guests not attending the conference events.

More information for EUROTEC 2013 is available at www.eurotec.ws.
