e-commerce and global communications; and the changing face of doing business in the post-9/11 world, including a focus on security, disaster management, transportation, insurance and legislative/regulatory initiatives.

The meeting will feature worldwide representation by associations including: aniq (Mexico's national association of the chemical industry); ASMAC (Adhesive and Sealant Manufacturers Association of Canada); CNAIA (China National Adhesives Industry Association); FEICA (Association of European Adhesives Manufacturers); JAIA (Japan Adhesive Industry Association), and the Taiwan Synthetic Resin & Adhesive Industrial Association.
