PE Showcase '23 - December 4th - 7th

PE Showcase is the premier networking and educational event that has become an annual staple for distributors and manufacturers alike. Now, in its 7th year, Showcase is the place where you can go for:

  • Great networking
  • Unbeatable educational sessions
  • A much needed fusion tune-up
  • National HDPE Experts
  • Excellent Food
  • Deep Dives
  • Great Special Events
  • Poly Feud
  • Should we keep going?

This year the golf simulator is Back thanks to Strongbridge!  After Showcase Hall, take your pick of the bourbon dinner hosted by Integrity Fusion or the wine challenge hosted by Infra Pipe.

Wednesday, December 6th is Premier Day 1.  Wednesday is a great day that starts early with a breakfast in Showcase Hall. There will be a raffle at breakfast . All classes are a minimum of 50 minutes and sometimes 90 minutes long. At lunchtime, the plenary (means everyone attends) session is when awards are given and the Alliance shares news. The afternoon sessions are incredible. The afternoon break is in Showcase Hall with some ice cream. The evening starts at 6:00 PM at Austin Ranch the stand alone venue behind the hotel. The McElroy reception begins at 6:00 PM, Dinner hosted by Pipeline Plastics is at 7:00 and then WL Plastics’s Poly Feud begins at 8:30 PM.

Thursday, December 7th is Premier Day 2.  The final, official day of the conference sees ITS breakfast and a raffle in Showcase Hall and several dynamic sessions before the annual meeting luncheon. Some people skip out on Thursday, but there is a featured session they miss out on and, as usual, the content is developed by over 20 people to address the needs of the industry. The event closes with the PE Alliance annual meeting where Peter Dyke discusses the results of the year and what to look forward to in 2024

Friday, December 8th is technically not a Showcase Day. But, since many of us are staying the weekend, we decided to hit a few balls on Friday morning then play 18 at the nearby and really fun Dallas Cowboys golf course. They gave us a break on the fee and the course is darn good.
