One Pass. Two Can't-Miss Conference Events.

PLASTEC West runs alongside two stand-out educational opportunities: the Smart Manufacturing Innovation Summit and MD&M West medtech conference.

Meet the factories of the future with deep-dive education in the cobot technologies and cyber-physical systems defining a fourth industrial revolution. Or learn about the new wave of medtech product development and user-centric design innovation changing the face of medical device manufacturing — all with one conference pass.
