Mark October 19, 1999 on your calendar, as this magazine’s 4th annual Resin Outlook Conference promises to provide attendees with insights on commodity resin pricing conditions for the upcoming year. The conference, to be held once again at the Toronto Congress Centre, should prove especially useful to buyers and sellers of resin coming, as it does, after a rollercoaster year of pricing which saw the cost of polyethylene, vinyl and polypropylene rise as much as five to ten cents per pound, depending on grade and purchase category. After such pricing volatility, the question on everyone’s mind is “Will I be paying more or less for resin next year?”

A new feature to the conference this year is the use of independent speakers who are not affiliated with any of the major resin supply companies. These independent experts will offer their objective forecasts for pricing of all major grades of commodity resins, including polyethylene, polypropylene, vinyl and polystyrene. Additionally, conference attendees will receive expert analysis of the business trends in the packaging, automotive and construction markets. The conference also provides ample opportunity to network with others in the plastics industry. Hope to see you there! For information call Cathy Donaghy, 416/442-2255.
