Count Down with Plastics Technology

Plastics Technology has promoted its NPE2018 Problem Solvers Contest with music (hat tip to Vanilla Ice), movies (plastics in one word ala The Graduate) and now the program finishes on another musical note, invoking the biggest (only?) hit of a certain Swedish rock band.

The headline serves two purposes. First, attendees are entering the final countdown of NPE2018: The Plastics Show. As the show draws to a close, here’s a final reminder of what Plastics Technology is featuring at this year’s premier plastics processing event.

If you haven’t already come by, Plastics Technology wanted to extend a special invitation to daily happy hours in PT’s booth (W-2513, West Hall) at NPE2018. These daily networking events are dubbed PT ROCKS! Despite this article’s title, the happy hours are not musical genre-themed, Plastics Technology just thinks the plastics industry rocks, and the publication wants NPE visitors to join in celebrating. After a long day of walking the show, please come to Booth W-2513, West Hall, for networking, refreshments and fun. While you are there you will notice the following also taking place in our booth.

For the third consecutive NPE, PT is highlighting the PT Solutions Network, which celebrates the people, the products and the publications that solve plastics problems.

The PT Solutions Network is anchored by the PT Problem Solvers contest, which asks that you share photos and videos about who you are, what you do and what problems you are trying to solve. Plastics Technology uses the term “network” because its parent company, Gardner Business Media, produces several media brands that also deliver relevant information to plastics industry professionals—brands like MoldMaking Technology, CompositesWorld and Additive Manufacturing.

In addition, Gardner has two Spanish-language brands—Plastics Technology México and Modern Machine Shop México—that are expanding the company’s network geographically and linguistically. All Gardner’s media brands are on display in Booth W-2513, West Hall. And, MoldMaking Technology (S-33000) and Additive Manufacturing (S-22147) have their own booths in the South Hall.
