iSmithers, the information business within Smithers Rapra, is proud to host its twelfth annual TPE conference in Frankfurt this November.

The current global economy has impacted every industry, and the application areas for TPEs are no exception. Medical, sports, automotive and engineering industries are all being forced to be more innovative, which is in turn a driving force throughout the supply chain. TPE raw materials suppliers, TPE converters, manufacturers and end users are in a race to provide high performance products at the lowest possible cost to ensure their business success. This conference is an opportunity chance to gain insight into the commercial direction and technical development within the TPE industry to ensure that you are focussing your resources in the right area.

TPE 2009 will build on the success of TPE 2008 by having forward thinking papers presented by companies that are choosing to invest resources into new opportunities. By coming to this conference, you will be showing competitors, suppliers and clients that you are still identifying ways to improve your processes and products – an important message in this economic climate. Whatever tier of the supply chain you are from, whether you are you a TPE processor, medical grade supplier, sports goods designer or an automotive parts manufacturer, this conference is an ideal forum for multi-tier collaboration and business networking.
