The 28th edition of the annual all-things-injection-molding event promises to be the best and biggest ever, coming off back-to-back years with record numbers of papers, attendees, exhibitors and sponsors. Next year, the event heads to Southern California and the Hilton Long Beach from Feb. 27-March 1.
