Improving margins is yet to be complemented by steady demand due to regional volatilities. In this scenario, which region has the potential to drive PVC growth and what exactly are the roadblocks for the sector? What are the chances for market recovery in the west? What is driving the PVC market in emerging economies?

CMT’s 5th Global Chlor-Vinyl Markets conference meets in Istanbul-Turkey on 10-11 June 2010 to provide high-level insights for resin producers/traders, plastic additives suppliers, compounders, end-users and technology providers alike to aid them in developing strategic decisions going forward.

The conference will commence with vital updates on the world economic situation and outlook for 2010/11. This will pave the way for key sessions on “Changing Vinyl Trade Patterns” by Nexant Chemsystems and “Challenges Facing the European PVC Industry, and PVC Production Cost Competitveness” shared by Arkema

The 5th Global Chlor-Vinyl Markets will also focus on prospects of PVC markets and trends from leading PVC producers/traders including Formosa Plastics, Arkema, PETKIM Petrokimya, Egyptian Petrochemical, Vinmar International, Market Report Company and DCW Ltd.

The city’s main business districts, residential, commercial and industrial areas are continuously expanding. It has a registered number of over 1,000 skyscrapers and this does not include hundreds of new building projects on stream in coming years.

Bangkok is home to over 170 hospitals, 15 world-class shopping malls, more than 800 condominiums and private apartment buildings, and hundreds of hotels/resorts catering to 15 million tourist arrivals each year. Within Greater Bangkok, there are over 8 large industrial estates with a wide range of manufacturing facilities. Additionally, the city is a key regional MICE destination with over 250,000 sqm of exhibition and convention facilities. One such facility recently outsourced its facility management service worth over 30 million baht per annum.

This market potential serves as the prefect backdrop for the staging of Building Maintenance and Asset Management Expo Asia 2008. Mr. Stuart Winters of Sodexo said “The exhibition provides us with a cost effective marketing platform to win new customers and collect high quality leads, entertain our existing customers, renew relationship with our past customers, showcase and promote our full range of food and facility management services, generate sales, and of course, build our company’s brand image.

Mr. Uthai Lohachitranond, President Elect of ASHARE Thailand Chapter commented, BMAM Expo Asia 2008 is a major event that can represent the latest technology about green concept and sustainability way for building owners, facilities managers, engineers and developers.

Building owners and managers are also looking forward to attend the exhibition. Mr. Paul Thomson, Chief of Facility Management of the UN in Bangkok said I will be sending quite a large section of our facilities and property management teams to see what we can learn from this event. Healthcare facility operator, Mr. Arthit Limpasarn from the Bangkok Hospital Group who manages a chain of hospital facilities in Thailand, added This event is indeed a must-visit international fair for facility engineers and owners from across the Asia region.

A highly informative conference is also being planned to be alongside the exhibition. The event’s Advisory Committee panel comprising key industry players agreed that the conference will revolve around the Green Technology/Green Building and Cost Savings themes with educational workshop subjects such as Initial steps to facility management, New technologies for facility management, Saving the environment, saving your money, etc. The full details of the conference topics will be posted on the event website soon.

Mr. Loy Joon How, General Manager of IMPACT Exhibitions Management Co., Ltd., the organizer of this event said “The conference will feature critical topics, issues, trends and technology facing the industry and educational tutorials for building and facility owners and operators to better understand the benefits and importance of proper building maintenance and asset management as the concept of facilities management is rather new for Asia.
