The Expo Centre Sharjah will play host to the fifth International Conference for Plastics Conversion, the high-profile industry gathering of plastic converters scheduled for 2014, an official release said on Sunday.
GPCA PlastCon 2014 will be organised in association with Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association here from April 7 to 10 next year, Saif Mohammed Al Midfa, director general of Expo Centre Sharjah, said in the press release.
"We tied up with All India Plastics Manufacturers Association (AIPMA), the oldest and the largest apex body of the plastic industry in India, for the launch of Plastivision Arabia in 2012," Al Midfa said.
"Now, for its second edition, along with AIPMA, Plastivision Arabia will have a formidable new partner, the GPCA , which is known as the voice of the region's petrochemicals and chemicals industry," he added.
GPCA PlastCon 2014 will focus on the Gulf polymer industry and the main challenges and developments in plastic conversion today, bringing together all major players with an interest in this key industry sector.
The launch edition of Plastivision Arabia in 2012 had brought together 150 exhibitors from 19 countries and attracted 7,000 visitors from 66 countries.
