Global Plastics Summit to highlight threats and opportunities facing industry

SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association (Washington, DC) and IHS Chemical (Englewood, CO) are teaming up again next month to present the industry-leading, executive level Global Plastics Summit (GPS) Oct. 28-30 in Chicago at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel.

There will be presentations from brand owners, top-tier business executives and expert analysts, who will provide technical content and insights into the global plastics, energy and petrochemical industries that can’t be found anywhere else.

“There are numerous issues facing the global plastics industry in today’s economy, and all of them trickle down to affect the countless end markets to which plastic materials and products are vital,” said William R. Carteaux, SPI President and CEO. “With GPS2015, the agenda is specifically tailored to give plastics executives the tools they need to navigate the new challenges gripping the global market, while giving them the insights and proven strategies they need in order to expand, invest and innovate into new markets and better meet the needs of brand owner customers and consumers around the world.”

“The global plastics industry has seen its share of disruptive forces in the year since IHS and SPI hosted last year’s Global Plastics Summit, the biggest of which has been plunging oil prices,” said Dave Witte, Senior Vice President of IHS and General Manager of IHS Chemical. “The resulting global volatility in the industry presents both significant risks and opportunities, and the GPS 2015 agenda is focused on providing business executives with unique insights and information they need to manage risks and capitalize on business opportunities.”
