Plasticity Shanghai

- Date: April 27, 2016. Shanghai, China

As usual, this unique forum brings together experts across the plastic spectrum, in collaborative fashion which does not usually occur in our daily operations.  Learn about the future of plastic design, innovation, materials, recycling, how to expand on what is already in the market, while reducing the "logjams" along the way.  Some of the speeches are in a TED-type format, along with panels and thought provoking discussions from professionals working on all types of innovation, for a world where plastic is valued for its material benefits.  

Speakers and attendees include those working with plastic design, innovation, materials, brands, supply chains, procurement, and process solutions for the optimization and circulation of resources.  Mr. Kim Siu, General Manager - Marketing of A.S. Watsons, will be presenting to share the change that Watsons Water made in Hong Kong to start using 100% recycled PET for its bottles, creating demand for over 75,000,000 bottles/year.  Dr. Mike Biddle, winner of the 2012 Gothenburg Sustainability Prize, Economist Innovation Award and World Economic Forum Tech Pioneer will also be a keynote speaker of the event.

You will be able to be part of the 1/2-day workshop, "Products and Packaging - Designing Sustainably" on the 28th, with our partners Successful Design, CBi China Bridge, and Green Initiatives.  We will also be organizing a tour of one of the world's largest plastic trade shows, Chinaplas, on April 26th, for those who do not normally attend these types of industry exhibitions.    

The event brings an incredible opportunity for networking across business sectors, in a country that continues to grow, innovate, and be a critical part of the world economy.
