Interplas Champions Women in Plastics
Interplas organizer Interplas Events Ltd. announces the return of the Women in Plastics networking evening, which will champion women working in the plastics processing community. After its successful debut in 2014, the Women in Plastics networking event returns to Interplas on Wednesday 27th September at 17:00-19:00 in Hall 4 of the Birmingham NEC.
Both Interplas exhibitors and visitors of all genders are welcome to attend the free event to hear presentations from key influencers, learn more about mentoring opportunities and to network. Speakers confirmed for the Women in Plastics networking evening include Adrienne Houston, PhD, Cluster Coordinator for the Woman's Engineering Society (WES) and Director at Eurovacuum Products Ltd., as well as Maryann Wilcox, President of the Society of Plastics Engineers' UK and Sales Manager at Silvergate Plastics.
The event has been initiated by Women in Plastics, the UK-based networking group for the plastics industry. Leanne Taylor, Women in Plastics Group Founder, says: "The Women in Plastics Group aims to champion diversity by highlighting the women in the industry that are doing great work, in every capacity. We have had some fantastic feedback and there is great support from the industry for the group. We need to back this up with events where members can meet face-to-face and discuss the challenges and opportunities facing women working in the modern plastics industry, as well as how to encourage more to choose a career within it. The event at Interplas will provide this and we look forward to encouraging as many people as possible to join us."
Interplas is the UK's largest and leading plastics industry event. It is the only one to cover all the manufacturing processes, technologies and services essential to the plastics sector. It will take place in Hall 4 of the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), Birmingham, UK, from 26-28 September 2017.
