Applied Market Information has announced that the Polymer Sourcing 2011 event will take place at the Radisson Blu hotel in Hamburg, Germany, on 9-11 May.

This will be the seventh edition of the forum, which was specifically created for companies involved at every stage of the European polymer supply chain.

The conference programme will start with a session on the polyolefin market with papers from AMI Consulting and Ineos Olefins and Polymers.

The second session will cover the latest on engineering polymer and styrenic markets with speakers from Bayer Materialscience, BASF and Ineos Nova.

Ian Robinson, purchasing director of Innovia Films, will then give a keynote presentation on polyolefin purchasing.

A new session is being introduced this year on risk-management tools, with presentations from MF Metals, RTI Europe and Ides.

It will include a North American perspective, which should be of interest to the European audience.

Distributors’ perspectives will be covered with five presentations including Biesterfeld Plastic, Distrupol Ireland, KD Feddersen, Schulman and Velox, with subjects ranging from the future for CRM in distribution, the pan-European Distributors model during the global crisis, strategy for optimised TCO to economic and ecological polymer grades and advice on launching new plastic materials.

The conference will close with a logistics session with papers from VLS and Interbulk, discussing Middle East supply chain opportunities and cost-effective polymer supply chain.

The event is supported by headline sponsor Biesterfeld Plastic.
