Concurrent Events
International Conference
The international conference is being held as a concurrent event to PLASTINDIA 2012 from the 2nd to 3rd February, 2012.

India’s considerable economic growth and progress in agriculture, food, retail, automobiles, telecommunication, infrastructure offer tremendous opportunity for the growth of plastic industry. India is already a major market for plastics. With consumption of plastic estimated at 8.5 million tonnes now, the industry continues to show robust growth and is shortly expected to be the 3rd largest consumer in the world. In order to achieve this, Indian Plastic Industry would require investment of over US $10 billion in converting industry in the coming decade.

The International Conference is a forum where industry professionals and other stakeholder would converge to assess the status and future course of the industry and share their views on business, technology, education and environment. The International Conference is the perfect platform to update on business and technology fronts. This conference is where challenges are explored, solutions are uncovered and opportunities are developed, making it the largest and most highly respected event of the industry. This conference is a great place to meet the technical experts in the industry exchanging research ideas with global companies and initiating new collaboration.

The theme for the conference is ‘Towards a Sustainable World’. This is particularly relevant in current context as we position plastics in its correct perspective and dispel unfounded myths devoid of scientific rationale. While the presentations and business sessions would revolve around this theme, this forum is an ideal platform to instill greater leadership roles in promoting and advocating sound governance standards and practices towards sustainability in both at home and at work.

Proplast is an integral part of Plastindia 2012, offering excellent opportunities to witness the remarkable progress made by the Indian plastics processing industry over the years.
