NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) December 5, 2005
The first online global chemicals conference and exhibition will take place on December 7, run by ICIS, the world’s largest information provider for the chemical and oil industry. The event is free to delegates from all parts of the chemical industry, worldwide.
The ICIS Chemical Sites Expo and Conference brings together a panel of international experts to discuss issues crucial to decisions covering chemical industry investment, plant location, risk and the supply chain.
“An online event is a great concept for delegates because they can participate in the conference and navigate round exhibition booths from their office desks or sitting rooms,” says Alan Tyler, Director, ICIS Conferences. “There’s no need for all the hassle or expense of flights and hotels and they can participate from whichever time-zone they happen to be.”
After each presentation there will be a live Q&A session in which all delegates are welcome to participate. Among the highlights of the event, Joe Chang, Finance Editor of Chemical Market Reporter will discuss the chemicals cycles in a presentation on ‘the Madness of Crowds,’ and Cesar Castro of Innocentive will look at the advantages to be gained from outsourcing your R&D effort. Other presentations will look at chemical sites in the Netherlands, Singapore and Germany and risk consultancy AON will look at the supply chain and risk management.
Presentation topics include:
- Clustering – the benefits of operating in a chemical hub
- Plant and site security in a post-9/11 world
- Utility Supply - Integrated Utilities or DIY?
- Connectivity – Making logistics work for your plant
- Benchmarking - How to improve your manufacturing process.
- Site location and the supply chain
- Financial Support – How Tax/Subsidy issues can impact your investment decision
- Manpower and workforce training
- Outsourcing Research and Development – Can it work for you?
In addition to a full day of conference presentations, stretching from the afternoon in Asia to the morning in North America, the ICIS Chemical Sites Expo and Conference includes an exhibition where chemical companies and their suppliers have taken interactive booths to promote their products and services. Visitors will be able to navigate round the exhibition hall online and interact with exhibitors in real-time.
