ARLINGTON, Va. – Regulatory concerns, breakthrough developments and the global polyurethanes industry are key issues to be addressed at Polyurethanes Conference 2000, which will be held October 8-11, 2000, in Boston. Sponsored by the Alliance for the Polyurethanes Industry (API), the Conference will bring together approximately 2,000 delegates from polyurethane suppliers, distributors and end-users. Industry and business experts from around the world will make up several high-profile panels at the Conference.

This year's event features eight sessions devoted to crucial issues currently impacting the industry. "The issue sessions at Polyurethanes Conference 2000 will be more than places to share information," says Fran W. Lichtenberg, executive director of the API. "Our sessions will be forums for discussion, for finding real solutions to current challenges, and achieving consensus on issues facing the industry as a whole."
