Plastics Building Innovations set for inaugural session this November

This November, industry professionals will be gathering in Atlanta to convene over plastics growth and trends in the residential building market. The inaugural session of Plastics Building Innovations will feature nearly 20 speakers who will lead informational sessions regarding the emergence of plastics technology in the rebounding economy.

According to a company statement, the building and construction industry is already the second-largest end market for plastics consumption, and the presence of plastics is likely to increase in the near future.

"Many innovative polymer materials and applications are helping to drive the trend toward cost-effective, green-building techniques that will appeal to tomorrow’s home owners,” said Robert Grace, editorial and conference director and associate publisher with Plastics News. “We’re excited, with this inaugural conference, to be bringing together a variety of key players in the residential building supply chain to push that conversation forward."

Speakers include keynote presenter Joseph Lstiburek, D'Lane Wisner, Patrick Culpepper and Ingrid Mattsson and companies, such as Eastman Chemical Co. and Gros Executive Recruiters.
