Mark your calendars for Nov. 6-8, 2017. That's when we will hold the second annual Design in Plastics conference that I'm again organizing for the Society of Plastics Engineers -- this time at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit. The first such event that we held this past June on the Rhode Island School of Design campus in Providence was successful and well-received.
This business conference focuses on the challenges and rewards of communication and collaboration between designers, engineers, marketing, manufacturing and R&D in the product development process. See more about the 2016 conference, and its blue-chip lineup of 26 speakers, and watch this space for coming details about the 2017 event. Feel free to contact me for more details about speaking, sponsoring or attending.
On this coming Dec. 6-7 I will be moderating SPE's second Cyclitech conference in Newport Beach, Calif. -- about the advanced composites and materials used in high-end bicycle manufacture. Tour de France winner Greg LeMond is keynote speaker. Contact me for sponsorship or event details.
The 6th Plasticity Forum took place on Sept. 21, 2016, in London, concurrent with the London Design Festival. I moderated it, as well as the last two such forums -- held April 27-28, 2016, in Shanghai, and in June 2015 in Cascais, Portugal. Billed as "a big conversation on the future of plastic," this event provides a high-level dialogue about innovative sustainable solutions that can transform plastic waste into a valuable resource. For a glimpse, view this brief video about the event. We have yet to select a date and location for Plasticity Forum 2017, but contact me for more details about the event.
