Rhoda Miel, our staff reporter in Detroit, is at the SAE 2009 World Congress this week, but she notes that the trade show is nothing like what it used to be. There aren't many plastics companies there, and the bulk of those that she spoke to aren't featuring anything new. Everything in Detroit seems to be on hold while the auto industry waits to see what will happen to General Motors. Back in 2001, SAE had about 800 exhibitors representing 1,200 companies. This year there are 330 exhibitors. Check Plastics News' Twitter site for photos and updates from the show, including some photos that Rhoda posted today.
