After hurricane Irma

SPE permanently cancels 2017 Thermoforming Conference

Marketing - Wednesday, 4 October 2017

Shortly after cancelling the 2017 SPE Thermoforming Conference in response to the threat posed by hurricane Irma, the Thermoforming Division has announced that it will not reschedule the conference and has outlined refund options for registered attendees and exhibitors. The 2017 conference had been scheduled to begin on September 11 in Orlando, Florida, one day after the hurricane was expected to make landfall in Florida. In announcing the decision not to reschedule the event, the Thermoforming Division noted that next year’s SPE Thermoforming Conference will take place in Fort Worth, Texas, on September 24-26, 2018.

“Thermoforming Division officers quickly realized the impossibility of securing a new 2017 date and venue at the last minute,” said division chair Bret Joslyn. “We decided to announce the permanent cancellation of this year’s conference as soon as possible so as not to prolong the uncertainty facing our registered attendees and exhibitors, who would be coming from locations across the Americas and overseas”.
