2023 plastic Product Decorating Summit


Plastics Decorating Magazine and the In-Mold Decorating Association (IMDA) will hold the 2023 Plastic Product Decorating Summit on September 28-29 at the Milwaukee Marriott West, Waukesha, Wisconsin.

This event was formerly known as the SPE Decorating & Coatings Division TopCon / IMDA Symposium.

Operating under a new name to draw conference attendees from a wide range of market segments – OEMs, brand owners, molders, decorators, and those providing equipment and consumables – the Plastic Product Decorating Summit brings together all segments of the plastics industry to learn, listen and discuss the latest application methods, equipment advances, best practices and market trends. 

The event will feature programming on advances in all types of plastic decorating, in-mold decorating/labeling and coatings with technical programming, industry panel discussions and a plant tour of custom injection molder Sussex IM. An evening reception will reveal the winners of the 2023 IMDA Awards Competition, and a trade fair features exhibits from leading suppliers to the industry (open during breakfast, lunch and the evening networking reception).

Attendee Registration will open June 1, 2023. Registration for Supplier Trade Fair Exhibition is open Now.
