Plastics Crossroads Summit 2013 March 19 - Sheraton Hotel, Anaheim, CA

RJG is partnering with Harbour Results, Inc., IQMS, PolyOne Corporation and Tooling Docs to hold a networking summit for plastics professionals, which will be moderated by Troy Nix from MAPP. The companies involved are a cross section of industry providers who are experts in their fields, and provide products, services and consulting to the plastics industry. All the sponsoring companies bring to the table a wealth of knowledge and experience in their respective fields and look forward to sharing what they have learned through their many years in the business. We hope you will join us for what looks to be an insightful and intriguing day of thought-provoking conversation. Our goal for this summit is that each attendee leave with newfound knowledge and answers to some, if not all of the questions they came with. Learn More
