Momentum On The Rise For PPXXI

16 June 2023

Organizers of the PPXXI Conference and Exhibition report that approximately 400 participants are expected at the PPXXI Conference and Exhibition in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Also announced is a new coffee break sponsor: Shell Polymers! The event is scheduled this year for September 25 – 27, 2023.

Sarah Patterson, PPXXI Organizing Committee Chair, remarks: ”We are delighted to welcome Shell Polymers as a PPXXI sponsor. Its parent company, Shell Chemicals, was founded in 1929 and forged a close partnership with the plastic pipe industry since its first development in the mid-nineteen fifties.”

¨Shell Polymers looks forward to communicating and interfacing with the plastic pipe industry at PPXXI,¨ says Carl Baker, Shell Polymers, Senior Technical Service Engineer. ¨Our polythene experience is based on fostering world class partnerships through innovation, quality and performance. Our new Monaca plant incorporates an application hall that allows converters and manufacturers to improve machine performance, design innovative polyethylene parts, and test new machinery and technologies.¨

Technical program

The preliminary PPXXI technical program and abstract book are published to the conference home page. The technical program highlights innovative and wide ranging technical and business aspects.

Zoran Davidovski, Organizing Committee Co-Chair and Technical Program Chair, shares: ¨This conference has all the hallmarks of a quality industry event. This year, a total of 92 technical papers are planned for presentation to an audience drawn from about 40 countries.¨
Networking on exhibition

The three-day exhibition that accompanies the conference is also gaining momentum. Shane Schuessler, ISCO Industries, Inc., Vice President – Global EPC & International Sales, is chair of the exhibition and comments: ¨Our exhibition provides a great opportunity to network with conference delegates to highlight products, solutions, services, and position the exhibitor as a major player in the industry. It is a place where important introductions, associations and reputations are made. Trade associations are also welcomed to promote their missions and enlist industry support. ¨
