The European Thermoforming Division of the SPE has commenced its preparation for the 9th Thermoforming Conference which will be held in Prague, Czech Republic.
The 4 main Topics of the conference will be: Sustainability, Lightweight, Innovation and Competiveness
Further evidence of the ETD board listening to its peers was the inclusion of a parallel commercial presentation session for sponsors of the event, which proved highly successful. This programme allows each Sponsor an open forum to present their new developments to a very relevant audience for duration of 15 minutes. This opportunity compliments their marketing strategy at the event adding yet more value to the package.
It is important for us, you and the thermoforming industry as a whole, to benefit from this event and to do so, we need to ‘tailor’ it in the most efficient and economical fashion. You can help us do that by indicating the likelihood of your sponsorship involvement on the attached slip and returning it to us as soon as possible. We stress that this response would be recognised as an indicator only and without any firm commitment at this stage.
The main technical lecture programme is under development and promises to be the best ever with a number of eminent speakers already agreeing to participate.
We very much appreciated your cooperation in this matter and look forward to your constructive and full involvement in 2014.
