Society of Plastics Engineers, Inc.

26th Annual Material Auction – February 28, 2020
MGM Grand Casino – Detroit
1777 Third Street, Detroit, Michigan 48201

The Detroit Section of the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) will hold its 26th annual Material Auction on Friday, February 28, 2020, once again at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, Detroit, MI.  This event raises funds for the Educational Programs of the Detroit Section.  As you know, the primary focus of the SPE is providing scholarships to individuals pursuing careers in various plastic disciplines at local colleges and universities, supporting student chapter directives, and providing educational/technical seminars to SPE members and student members. The Material Auction also, provides funding to send the Plastivan to local elementary, middle and high schools. The Plastivan program educates students about the chemistry, processing, sustainability and application of plastics.

We hope that your company will support our program via the donation of prime, obsolete, excess, or current production materials to our auction. You might even have newly formulated products whereby our auction may be used as a marketing vehicle. The benefits that you will receive from your donation and attending this event include:

  • A legitimate tax write-off of any or all materials you donate.
  • An opportunity to advertise your company logo free of charge on the TV monitors at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino during the Material Auction.
  • A chance to entertain customers and suppliers at a great event and to continue to grow the membership of SPE.

Once again, this year, recognition awards will be presented to the Top Bidder and Top Donor based on the results of the 2020 SPE Detroit Section Material Auction, and live entertainment prior to the Material Auction.
