The organizing committee for the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE, Brookfield, Conn., U.S.) Automotive Composites Conference & Expo (ACCE, Detroit, Mich., U.S.) has sent out a call for nominations for its annual innovative parts competition at the group’s 2021 conference, Sept. 8-10 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan.
Any registered conference participant (speaker, sponsor/exhibitor or attendee) may nominate original equipment or aftermarket composite parts on passenger vehicles, light trucks and heavy trucks from any geography. Prototype parts are also eligible. Companies, organizations and universities are all encouraged to participate and get recognized for their innovative production parts or prototypes. The vehicle producer must give permission and the part must be brought to the SPE ACCE for a formal review by judges.
A total of five prizes will be awarded including four for the most innovative Production Part and Prototype Part in Materials Innovation and Process Innovation categories (selected by judges who are industry experts and members of the SPE ACCE planning committee) and one People’s Choice award (selected by conference attendees). Winning teams will receive recognition and a trophy after lunch on the last day of the show.
Nomination abstracts are due June 30, 2021 and final nominations are due July 30, 2021 and should be emailed to email@example.com. More information and nomination instructions may be found at at this link.
