Celebratory Night Awaits Plastics Hall of Fame Inductees… and You!

Plastics Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

Have you seen, either in-person or televised on ESPN, the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies in Canton, Ohio? Newly elected football legends take center stage and tell their athletic war stories as a huge crowd of friends, family, teammates and fans salute the game’s all-time great players, coaches and contributors.

Believe it or not, this year’s Plastics Hall of Fame Gala, which will be held at NPE2009 on the evening of June 22nd, will actually have a lot in common with those pro football induction ceremonies.

First of all, Pro Football Hall of Famer Mike Ditka, the legendary tight end and coach for the Chicago Bears, will be there to deliver the keynote address. Talk about on and off-the-field success — from restaurants, wines and cigars to broadcasting, Ditka still has a lot going on! But more importantly, similar to the football ceremonies, the Plastics Hall of Fame Gala at NPE is an opportunity for colleagues, friends and family to salute the scientific, manufacturing and business achievements of the true legends of our industry.

Administered by The Plastics Academy, the Plastics Hall of Fame honors individuals whose extraordinary accomplishments contributed to the growth of the plastics industry. Read about this year’s nine inductees, whose accomplishments span design, machinery, packaging, polymer chemistry, compounding and more. See their photos here.

You should honor the plastics pioneers who paved our industry’s path forward by attending this elegant (black-tie optional), celebratory event — which includes a reception, dinner and the induction ceremony. Reserve a table as a bronze, sliver, gold or platinum-level sponsor, or buy individual tickets. Get the deatils here and contact Karen Bolton at (202) 974-5249.
