The 20th annual SPE TPO Automotive Engineered Polyolefins Conference will feature keynote speakers from VW/Audi, LyondellBasell, Inteva Products, Miller Cole LLC, and IHS Markit.

The theme for the technical conference and exhibition is TPO Driving the Future.

Lon Offenbacher, president and chief executive officer of Inteva Products, will kick off the conference with a keynote entitled “A Look Back and a Look Forward.” The focus of the speech is how far TPO technologies have come since their origins to present day, as well as a look forward to the opportunities the industry offers for further evolution.

 “It’s hard to believe that it’s been two decades since the SPE TPO Automotive Engineering Conference began,” says Offenbacher.

The conference runs Oct. 7 to Oct. 10 at the Troy Marriott in Troy, Mich. For more information, visit
