Event Detail:

Coinciding with K 2013.

Sixteen years ago Smithers Rapra launched the first conference tailored to the specific needs of the TPE industry, where delegates could connect with key decision makers and technical experts directly involved in the thermoplastic elastomers sector and hear innovative, application-driven papers from the market leaders.

Sixteen years on, Smithers Rapra's now world renowned TPE conference still aims to do just that. TPE loog

Taking place in Dusseldorf on 15-16 October 2013 and featuring a range of highly topical papers, the focus for this year's event will be end-use applications.

Whatever tier of the supply chain you occupy, whether you are a TPE processor, medical grade supplier, sports goods designer or an automotive parts manufacturer, the last few years are likely to have been tough for business. However the expanding automotive production industry of Eastern Europe, increased use of TPEs in the emerging markets of India, China and Brazil and the ongoing push for the use lighter weight materials in the automotive sector are all playing a part to significantly boost TPE demand and there is now optimism for new materials, technologies and applications.

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. For end-users of TPE, this represents an ideal forum to achieve the multi-tier collaboration capabilities and information needed to influence the performance of the materials of the future.

Building on the success of the 2007 and 2010 events, we are organising the 2013 event to coincide with the world famous K Fair taking place at the Messe Dusseldorf from 16-23 October. 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.
