With representation from the major TPE material suppliers and compounders from across the world, TPE 2013 once again promises you innovative, application-driven papers from the TPE market leaders, unparalleled networking opportunities and access to Europe's key industry players.

Smithers Rapra's TPE conference will take place at the Hotel Nikko, Dusseldorf, just a short distance from the Messe enabling delegates to combine both events.
