SPE CAD host conferences twice each year (ISPE ANTEC, CAD RETEC) that are open to all interested parties.
ANTEC usually takes place in late spring of each year. Our sessions are identified as Color & Appearance Division (D21) sessions, and generally last a whole day, followed by a short division business meeting and a cocktail reception. Please join us for a full day of COlor and Appearance for Plastics topics. SPE membership is encouraged but is not required to attend.
CAD RETEC® is the trademarked name of our division's annual topical conference. CAD RETEC is usually scheduled in the fall of each year, and generally takes place over two or three days. CAD RETEC is our "big" conference each year and is the largest technical conference hosted in North America that is devoted to the coloring of plastics. Attendance is usually around 400-500 people, so it offers a great networking opportunity in addition to a technology focus. Conference locations change from year to year as we try to offer convenient opportunties to attend for the entire CAD membership. SPE membership is encouraged but is not required to attend.
