Registration is now open for the 60th Polyurethanes Technical Conference, which will be held Oct. 2-4, 2017, at the New Orleans Marriott in Lousiana. Hosted by the Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) of the American Chemistry Council (ACC), this prestigious conference brings together industry leaders and experts to discuss and learn about the latest innovations and creative applications for polyurethane.

“Over six decades, the Polyurethanes Technical Conference built a reputation as the must-attend event for all those who make, use or study polyurethanes around the globe,” says Lee Salamone, senior director of CPI. “Our event offers industry experts a place to network with more than 1,000 of their peers and discuss the future landscape of the polyurethane and plastics industry.”

“For 60 years, this conference has shaped the polyurethane industry,” adds Melissa Rose, polyurethanes technical service and development director at Dow and CPI’s 2017 conference chair. “Every year, we craft an innovative program that allows our attendees to discover what’s new in our industry. This year’s lineup offers an exciting and unique opportunity to gather in-depth industry knowledge, learn about the latest applications for polyurethanes and hear from senior-level regulators.”

During the 2017 Polyurethanes Technical Conference, thought-provoking technical sessions will cover the latest innovations, advancements and applications for polyurethanes, and subjects ranging from automotive manufacturing, construction, coatings, adhesives, product sustainability, and sealants and elastomers (CASE). The 2017 Technical Conference will offer its Professional Development Program, which is taught by current industry experts, to help train current and future leaders in chemistry, application, testing and safety-related topics.
