CHESTER, UK -- How to get 'more profit from plastics' will be revealed at Interplas 2014, via a comprehensive line-up of speakers in the 'RAPRA' conference session.

The RAPRA technical session is set to include some of the plastics industry's most experienced speakers delivering information on technological developments, process improvements and human resource enhancement opportunities that will help visitors, cost effectively, make 'profit from plastics'.

Organized by Rapid News Communications Group, this year's outing will run for three days from September 30th to October 2nd at the NEC, Birmingham, UK, with some of the biggest names in plastics exhibiting and presenting at the triennial event.

Visitor numbers are set to exceed 12,000 and there are more than 400 exhibitors taking their place on the expanded show floor, which is nearly one-third larger than in 2011 and will feature the likes of Arburg, Engel, Demag, Summit Systems, Romi Sandretto, Ferromatik, Milacron Extrusion and Boy.

The recently-announced line-up includes keynote, Simon Canfer, Composites Group Leader at the Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC), who will deliver a paper detailing how plastic materials provide solutions for the challenges of 'Big Science' and how the plastics industry can help.

In addition, Gary Howe, Founder and Managing Director of iPolyTech, will present on 'Predicting failure and designing for long term performance'; Beth Dean, Fire Scientist, Exova Warringtonfire Europe will look at 'New Reaction to Fire Testing Requirements for Materials on Trains'; and John Goff, CEO, G&A Moulding Technology will advise visitors on 'Improving reliability and performance of the human resource (the true "competitive advantage")'.

Duncan Wood, COO and Event Director, commented: "Visitors to Interplas 2014 will benefit from a comprehensive program of seminars covering a wealth of key industry topics over the course of the three-day show. The caliber of speakers in the RAPRA seminar session is second to none and the chosen theme is a case in point that this year's seminar sessions will not only be of great interest to visitors, but great use too."
