Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – Crain Communications has announced the first UTECH Southeast Asia exhibition and conference. It will be held 26-28 April 2022.
The decision to hold the meeting was prompted by the rapidly expanding market for polyurethane products and systems in Southeast Asia, and Vietnam in particular.
'Vietnam is the obvious place to expand the UTECH brand beyond our established markets in Europe, America, China and the Middle East/Africa,' said UTECH Trade Show Director Debbie Hershfield.
'We are excited to bring visitors from across the region to see the latest in materials and technology from our global and local exhibitors, as well as showcasing learning, innovation and business opportunities in our conference sessions and on the trade show floor.'
Hershfield said that the event will be held at the Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center. A three-day conference will run alongside the exhibition.
There has been rapid growth in a number of polyurethane processing sectors in the region in recent years. Geographically, Vietnam is strategically placed close to Indonesia to the south, and Thailand and Malaysia to the west. The petrochemical hubs of Map Ta Phut, Thailand and Singapore are nearby to supply raw materials for PU manufacturers and processors.
Crain Communications also publishes UTECH-polyurethane.com and Urethanes Technology International magazine.
