Overland Park, Kans. - IAPD - The Performance Plastics Association, is pleased to bring delegates of the 67th IAPD Annual Convention + connecX a sold out connecX show on Wednesday, October 25, 2023, at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina in San Diego, CA, USA.

connecX is the only place performance plastics industry professionals can meet with a critical mass of the experts who distribute, specify and purchase semi-finished performance plastics stock shapes, fabricated parts and pipe valves and fittings all in one place. connecX meets the demand for more one-on-one private meetings between suppliers and their partners. Imagine having a year’s worth of sales meetings with your most valuable customers all in one week: that’s connecX.

“IAPD is proud to bring our members another sold out connecX show,” said IAPD CEO Susan Avery, CAE. “This year, an all-new format will make the show even more valuable for delegates. Based on your survey responses, the tradeshow floor has been reformatted to eliminate any dead floor space and the new 67th IAPD Annual Convention schedule will drive connecX attendance.” 

If you are interested in attending the 67th IAPD Annual Convention + connecX, register at by October 20, 2023. Full convention registrations as well as Wednesday-only passes are available to both IAPD members and nonmembers. 

Thank you to the sponsors of the IAPD Annual Convention & connecX for making a sold out show possible.
