Courtesy of the "In the Hopper" blog, the Society of Plastics Engineers has announced that the 2012 ANTEC show will be in Orlando, but in a big change, it will be at the same time (April 1 - 5) and place as the NPE show.
ANTEC was just held in Orlando last year although it was in early May. I personally found the weather to be pretty uncomfortable, so I am looking forward to an April show instead. Plus I've never been to the NPE, so if I can just get a paper worked up and accepted, it could be a great trip.
Of course, I still have to work on this years paper - something I am taking a break from to write this. Remember, the deadline for abstracts AND the complete paper are November 19th this year - considerably earlier than in the past.
