PLASTICS' government affairs team

  • Date: September 11 - 12, 2018
  • Held At: Mandarin Oriental, Washington, District Of Columbia

Don‘t let naysayers dictate the story of plastics. We know the widespread, positive impact plastics make. Now, more than ever, we need to show up in Washington, D.C., strong and proud, to educate those on Capitol Hill about what we already know: plastics help change peoples' lives for the better. 

It is critical for our industry to come together and show our strength in plastics and in making a Better Industry. Better World. New this year, the Plastics Industry Fly-In is coupled with the PLASTICS Annual Meeting & Fall Conference which includes Council Meetings, the FLiP Committee meeting, an inspirational keynote, evening entertainment and the opportunity for the entire plastics supply chain to come together. Reserve your hotel room now as the room block will close August 14. View a draft agenda with more details coming soon.

Featured Issues: 

  • Tariffs and trade
  • Infrastructure, specifically recycling and open competition for plastic pipe
  • Workforce development

Plastics Industry Fly-In


Let’s show off our booming, innovative industry at the Plastics Industry Fly-In in D.C. on September 12.

We will prepare you and set you up for success in your meetings on Capitol Hill. So what are you waiting for? This is your opportunity to tell your story in D.C.

During your face-to-face meetings with lawmakers and key decision makers, you can tell your real-world stories to illustrate how legislative issues will impact the health and viability of your business, your employees and your customers. There is no better way to cut through the political noise.

Haven't met with a member of Congress before? No problem. We will schedule your appointments with the lawmakers who represent you and your business. You will receive briefing materials on the issues before your arrival in Washington and, with our team of experts, will dedicate the morning of September 12 to give you the most updated information on legislative activities. So come join us and represent the industry!
