About

Since 1998, the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE®), leading global OEMs and Tier Suppliers, as well as the TPO supply chain have pooled their resources to create the SPE® Automotive TPO Engineered Polyolefins Global Conference, a dynamic, interactive, and cost-effective learning experience. The show highlights the importance of rigid and flexible polyolefins (TPOs) as well as a growing range of thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) and thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) throughout the automobile and in other forms of ground transportation.

The event has become the world’s leading automotive polyolefins forum and typically draws over 800 key decision makers and some of the world's foremost authorities on transportation polyolefin applications, economics, and market trends. As such, it provides excellent networking opportunities with key members of the automotive TPO, TPE, & TPV supply chain, and the opportunity to learn about designing lighter, less costly automotive components using the latest technologies and applications for these versatile materials.

The conference draws participants from across the entire transportation polyolefin value chain. Historically, 30% of attendees have indicated they worked for a transportation OEM; 20% said they worked for a tier integrator / molder, and the remaining 50% said their employer was a materials or reinforcements supplier, academic institution, laboratory, or that they were a consultant or member of the press.

To help attendees better understand current and emerging trends in this field, traditional technical sessions are organized as follows:
