The 2017 Conference Committee would like to invite you to the 63rd Annual PPFIC Technical Conference to be held in the “City of Glass” – Tacoma, WA. Please return with us to the ‘Evergreen” state in the beautiful US Northwest and join us at the recently renovated Murano Hotel in the heart of Tacoma.
In addition to technical papers and other events, attendees will have access to downtown Tacoma including the world famous Museum of Glass and Chihuly Bridge of Glass which links it to the downtown area, three other museums, 60 different local restaurants including those on Commencement Bay (a short ride from the hotel), boutique shops, a Theatre District, Point Defiance Park, Zoo and Aquarium and Fort Nisqually living history museum. The local committee has secured rooms at a favorable rate and urges attendees to immerse themselves in the view of Commencement Bay and experience the “Big City convenience with small town charm” of Tacoma.
Sponsors are invited to participate with table top exhibits in the Exhibit Hall during our Conference Monday through Thursday. The exhibit area will be conveniently located adjacent to the Technical Conference sessions to maximize attendance in the exhibit area.
