There's a lot up in the air about what events will go ahead as scheduled in 2021. Even the organizers of NPE2021, scheduled for May 17-21 in Orlando, Fla., say "things are very fluid at this point in time."
But one thing has been set: The 2021 class of the Plastics Hall of Fame.
This year's honorees come from machinery, materials, education and automotive sectors and represent multiple countries. They are: Yoshiharu Inaba, Mayumi Kotani, Salvatore Monte, Peter Neumann, Donald Paulson, Joseph Prischak, Ulrich Reifenhäuser, Wylie Royce, Suresh Shah and Vince Witherup.
Obviously, whether there will be an in-person ceremony, like the one above from when Ed Hunerberg was among the inductees, is going to be another question that remains unanswered for now.
You can read a little more about them here, and Plastics News will be following up with profiles on all the new Hall of Fame members in the next few months.
