Welcome to Smithers Rapra Conferences
"Keeping you competitive, profitable and informed"
Conferences are one of the most effective routes to win new business with excellent networking opportunities. All Smithers Rapra conferences are structured to include plenty of time to build long-standing relationships in a focused, yet relaxed environment whether over coffee, an evening drinks reception or an informal conference dinner.
Smithers Rapra has been organising world class technical conferences for the polymer and related industries for over 30 years. Drawing authorities from industry and academia, conferences offer the ideal forum to hear original, pioneering technical papers and meet and exchange ideas with like-minded peers from across the world. With topics spanning the latest developments in rubber and plastics technology, legislative changes and market trends, Smithers Rapra conferences continue to attract over 1,200 senior technical executives and decision makers per year.
The annual programme of conferences comprises a mix of established titles devoted to advances in the development - and application - of materials including thermoplastic elastomers, latex, silicone elastomers and plastic additives. Conferences also follow industry breakthroughs or changes in legislation. Leading practitioners at the forefront of their field share technical and commercial innovations, market updates and regulatory restrictions, keeping Smithers Rapra delegates informed about improvements in efficiency, performance and cost savings.
All conferences are supported by a comprehensive set of conference proceedings and PowerPoint slides, which together serve as a useful point of reference to delegates long after the event.
Sponsorship of an Smithers Rapra networking event offers a fast and enjoyable way to reach out to a captive audience and increase your company's presence in the wider business community.
As a dedicated producer of technical conferences, we are constantly expanding our programme of events, adding new topical subjects from across the rubber, plastics and related industries each year. As such, we welcome ideas for fresh titles from our delegates, speakers and sponsors in an effort to keep you competitive, profitable and informed.
