Polyurethane industry professionals are invited to register for the 64th Polyurethanes Technical Conference, which will be held October 3-5, at the Gaylord National Harbor in National Harbor, Md. Hosted by the American Chemistry Council’s Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI), the conference will feature creative applications and the latest innovations in polyurethane chemistry.
“We celebrated a successful return to in-person gatherings at last year’s Polyurethanes Technical Conference, and we are looking forward to carrying on that momentum into 2022,” said Lee Salamone, senior director, CPI. “Collaboration is imperative to solving many of today’s most complex and pressing issues, and the Polyurethanes Technical Conference plays a central role in cultivating the relationships needed to bolster our industry’s impact on helping create a sustainable future.”
The Polyurethanes Technical Conference offers a lineup of technical sessions designed to showcase the most relevant regulatory topics and trends facing the industry, including the latest innovations, advancements, and applications for polyurethanes, as well as end-use markets ranging from automotive and construction to coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers. The conference also provides a variety of networking and professional development opportunities.
“It’s great to see months of planning culminate into such a premier conference that provides the industry’s best and brightest an avenue to showcase their life-changing innovations and discuss the most pressing regulatory issues,” said Cynthia Graham, Huntsman, this year’s conference chair. “This year’s lineup provides attendees with not only outstanding networking opportunities and analysis, but an in-depth look at the variety of ways which polyurethane chemistry is critical to helping build a better, cleaner tomorrow.”
In addition to discussions surrounding sustainability, emerging technologies and markets, and regulatory insights, this year’s Polyurethanes Technical Conference will also feature the release of the 2021 End-Use Market Survey on the Polyurethanes Industry in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. This survey, which normally spans two years of data, will provide results from 2019, 2020, and 2021, as well as an analysis on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the marketplace. This year’s conference will also offer a partial return of the in-person Professional Development Program (PDP), offering some courses online and others at the conference.
