London-Following this year's highly successful UTECH Europe 2006 exhibition and conference in Maastricht, the Netherlands, the organisers have announced the date for the next UTECH Europe event, also to be held in the Maastricht Congress Centre.
The event will be held 31 March to 2 April 2009, said joint organisers Crain Communications Ltd, publisher of Urethanes Technology, and Industrial Promotions International BV.
This year's UTECH event broke previous attendance records and also attracted over 150 exhibitors. Over 3000 attendees came to Maastricht in the spring, with more than 500 delegates for the accompanying three-day international conference. Attendance was 14 percent up on the previous event in the Hague in 2003, with many more visitors coming in from eastern Europe and Russia, Turkey and Asia, the organisers said.
Next year sees a first-ever for UTECH as the event goes to the USA, in the form of UTECH North America 2007. This major conference and exhibition will be held 24-27 Sept 2007, at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Kissimmee, Florida.
The US event is a three-way cooperation between Crain Communications, Industrial Promotions International, and the Alliance for the Polyurethanes Industry in the US, who are putting the conference programme together.
