Antec 2010, the Society of Plastics Engineers' annual technical conference, drew 1,545 people to the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort and Convention Center.
Attendance was up slightly over the 2009 Antec, which drew 1,487 people. Last year's Antec was held in Chicago during the NPE2009 in June.
Attendees from nearly 40 countries came to this year's Antec, held May 16-20. The event included the presentations of 630 technical papers, and a trade show.
Although attendance did not meet historical Antec levels this year, the international participation from countries as far away as South Africa still demonstrates a demand for the quality technical information that Antec offers, said Lesley Kyle, SPE senior event manager.
Next year's Antec will be held May 1-5 in Boston.
