ABOUT

The goal of the Benchmarking and Best Practices Conference is to help plastics companies improve their operations and tactics in order to impact bottomline profits. The conference is anchored with best practices and leading benchmark presentations derived from the industry’s best known sources of statistical information. Known as the absolute best benchmarks in the industry, these presentations identify and correlate profitability to operational behaviors, market choices and more.

The ability to quickly adjust to marketplace conditions and continually improve operational efficiencies is a must in manufacturing. The core of this year’s Benchmarking and Best Practices conference will address leadership, operational best practices, the latest financial benchmarks, sales and marketing, and the impact of employees on the bottom-line. With over 600 plastics professionals expected to meet in Indianapolis, IN, on October 10-12, the Conference staff has created a schedule packed full of best practices, leading-edge benchmarks, expert presentations and the best networking opportunities in the industry.

This year's theme - BE EXTRAORDINARY - is designed to inspire, motivate and educate processors on how to continuously improve every day. Becoming better is not something that just happens; good leaders continually work to make themselves better, and the 2018 Benchmarking & Best Practices Conference will do just that!
