In 2014 the triennial PVC conference will return to Brighton, UK. The conference is claimed to be the world’s largest and most reputable forum to support the future of PVC globally and is a leading platform for the exchange of information, educational debate and discussion.
The 2011 event welcomed more than 70 presentations and 400 delegates from all over the world including the UK, Europe, North and South America and the Middle East and Far East.
The organisers say the event has built a reputation for its broad appeal, contrasting speaker content and high quality papers, in which specific industry areas are explored and discussed. The conference calls for abstracts for consideration for the programme by 1 May 2013.
In order to maintain the quality of the programme authors will be asked to ensure the paper they present is new or updated work that has not been presented (or scheduled for presentation) elsewhere. The conference will cover market, application and technical developments
PVC 2014 is organised by PVC professionals for the PVC industry in conjunction with IOM Communications Ltd on behalf of the Polymer Society (a division of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining) and the British Plastics Federation. The event is also supported by the European Council of Vinyl Manufacturers and the Society of Plastics Engineers.
PVC 2014 will be held at Hilton Brighton Metropole Hotel 1–3 April 2014.
