As usual, we are inviting expressions of interest from those who would like to deliver a two-minute PIN 'hotshot' on a particular product or service of their choice, related to the theme.

For those new to PIN, it is a unique networking event for all users, makers and processors of plastic and has successfully brought this important community together to help bridge the gap between industry and R&D.

Based at WMG's impressive International Institute for Product and Service Innovation at the University of Warwick, in Coventry, PIN now boasts over 500 active members.

Find out about the latest materials research from WMG, current industry trends and future technologies whilst meeting and collaborating with other likeminded businesses and colleagues from the WMG SME Group.

Please contact Dr Paul Milne at to reserve your hotshot talk or discuss any queries you may have regarding this event.

This event is free to attend and dinner will be provided.
