THERMOPLASTIC CONCENTRATES 2016


January 26-28, 2016


Ft. Lauderdale Marriott Coral Springs Golf Resort, Coral Springs, Florida, USA


There is no better way of positioning yourself for the future than by coming to AMI’s Thermoplastic Concentrates conference. This event has established a position as the place where the key issues facing the industry are debated and discussed in an open and thought provoking environment. This conference is well known for the high caliber of attendees, including senior executives from across the global supply chain, particularly the major concentrate production companies. At last year’s event, over $3.2 billion in concentrate sales was represented. This accounted for eighty percent of all concentrate production in the NAFTA area. Attendees have benefi ted from consistently high quality papers which not only deal with new technical developments, but also include industry leaders giving real business insight into the successful management of companies in the current situation. In addition, the event gives you the opportunity to network with senior industry participants and develop new focus in your work.


This year’s event is no different, and the program for Thermoplastic Concentrates 2016 focuses on new business and technical trends in pigments, additives and machinery, which will assist the innovation of new products and customer focused solutions. The conference will open with an address on the global polymer market and the way shifting patterns of demand will give strong opportunities to American concentrate producers. Presentations will then move on to customer and brand views on how changes in the plastics industry will impact the services and products demanded by clients. The fi nal session will provide insight from leading managers of concentrate companies regarding the future direction of the industry.


Now more than ever is the time to come together with your peers and industry colleagues to discuss and exchange views to ensure that you plot the right course for the future of your business. I look forward to welcoming you in Coral Springs, at AMI’s Thermoplastic Concentrates 2016 conference.
