Tekni-Plex Healthcare to Host Virtual Technology Day on Mytaverse Platform

Wayne, PA, February 22, 2022 —Tekni-Plex Healthcare, which utilizes advanced materials science expertise to help deliver better patient outcomes, has launched an immersive, next-level cyber experience to showcase its broad capabilities and product portfolios.


To officially kick off its Mytaverse environment, the Tekni-Plex division will host a full day of materials science presentations. The Virtual Technology Day occurs March 8 from 11 a.m.–4:15 p.m. EST for the US, and March 10 from 11 a.m.–4:15 p.m. CET for Europe. Those wishing to attend can register here.

Those participating in the event will be far more than spectators. Rather, attendees will have their own avatars, free to discover the cyber-environment and interact with others in an immersive, interactive experience. The setup is ideal to explore the wide array of materials science capabilities Tekni-Plex Healthcare brings to the medical, drug delivery, and diagnostics markets.

The result is a level of networking difficult to replicate in traditional online forums, as well as more impactful knowledge-sharing opportunities. The event’s scheduled presentations include:
