About the ADDCOM conference

ADDCOM 2014 is coming to Barcelona City, Spain from 7-8 October 2014

ADDCOM 2014 is taking place on 7 - 8 October 2014 at the Novotel Barcelona City, Spain and will consist of 2 days of high level presentations and unrivalled networking opportunities.

ADDCOM features two parallel tracks devoted to Additives and Compounding, allowing delegates to choose the most relevant sessions for their business needs. The conference will bring together plastics additives suppliers, material producers, compounders, researchers and end users, from across the supply chain to focus on industry challenges and to share their knowledge about new materials and processing technologies that will improve existing application performance and material selections. This is teamed with an unrivalled calibre of speakers from across industry and academia, providing networking and business exchange opportunities that one should expect from a market leading event.

Why you cannot miss the 2014 forum...

ADDCOM (previously known as Rapra's "Addcon" conference) has gained an enviable reputation for being the place for plastics additives suppliers, manufacturers and compounders to get together to learn and network side by side with industry visionaries, expert speakers and end users of plastics additives.

The conference will attract in excess of 140 attendees - delegates who would ensure that if they only attended one event this year, it would be Addcom.
