London-The product seminar programme for the PU China 2006 meeting, 5-7 Sept, has now been finalised and appears below.
This sixth PU China event, being staged in the Shanghai Mart exhibition centre in Shanghai, People's Republic of China, offers international companies wanting to develop business in the world's fastest-growing polyurethanes market an excellent meeting point.
It also gives companies based in China a chance to show their expertise to the many polyurethane specialists expected to visit.
PU China 2006 should match the 2004 event's record attendance: 1200 international visitors and 5200 Chinese attendees.
The event will give visitors an excellent opportunity to hear about the latest global developments through a series of company-sponsored product seminars (see programme below).
The seminars, in the Chinese language only, are free for attendees.
More than 30 hour-long presentations from about 20 suppliers will cover all the main uses of polyurethanes.
Over the three-days event, visitors will be able to meet representatives of all the major international players in the business, as well as many of the significant domestic companies involved; at the last count (22 June) there were 60 international exhibitors and 53 Chinese firms.
