SPE Announces Dates and Deadlines for Automotive Innovation Awards

The Automotive Division of the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) announced that this year's Automotive Innovation Awards Gala, the oldest and largest recognition event in the automotive and plastics industries, will be held Wednesday, November 12, 2014 at Burton Manor in Livonia, MI/USA, where winning part nominations and the teams that developed them will be honored during an evening that celebrates automotive plastics innovation.

Nominations must be submitted by September 10, 2014. Current competition categories include:

  • Body Exterior,
  • Body Interior,
  • Chassis / Hardware,
  • Electrical Systems,
  • Environmental,
  • Hall of Fame,
  • Materials,
  • Process / Assembly / Enabling Technologies,
  • Powertrain,
  • Safety, and
  • Vehicle Engineering Team Award (VETA).

There is no cost to nominate parts or vehicles. However, nominations that are accepted into the competition need to be presented (in person or by webinar) by their nominating teams during the first round of Automotive Innovation Awards Competition judging, October 2-3. Finalists from that round will advance to a second presentation before a panel of Blue Ribbon judges on October 13. Winners of each part category, the Vehicle Engineering Team Award (VETA) winner, as well as a Hall of Fame winner will be honored during the Automotive Innovation Awards Gala on November 12.

This annual event typically draws 600-700 OEM engineers, automotive and plastics industry executives, and media. Funds raised from the event are used to support SPE educational efforts and technical seminars, which help educate and secure the role of plastics in the advancement of the automobile.
