PCI Fibres Conference begins Nov 10 in Milan
Jun '15
The PCI Consulting Group Fibres Conference takes place from November 10-11, 2015 at The Hotel Marriott, Milan, Italy, immediately before ITMA 2015 and the World Textile Summit which will also be held in Milan.

The Fibres Conference 2015 will look at prospects for raw materials, fibres and textiles in the context of sustainability challenges, global health issues, and lifestyle and demographic changes.

“These factors carry implications for the mix of fibres, the manufacturing locations of supply chains, and the production systems that are used,” PCI Consulting which is hosting the conference said in a press release.

The key note speaker this year will be Giulio Bonazzi, chairman at Aquafil Group and alongside other speakers will also include PCI consultants as well as guest speakers.

Presentations will define the quantitative response in terms of fibre demand numerics and will also look at the crucial issue of how to recover value, perhaps the most pressing requirement throughout the industry.

According to PCI, the conference will review the raw material chains for polyester, polyamide, cotton and viscose.

Topics to be discussed include, ‘After such a rapid decline in the oil price, what recovery is likely?’ and ‘Will excessive investment in polyester and polyamide intermediates continue to prejudice margins?’

Other topics include; ‘Are prospects still bleak for cotton after the volatility of recent years?’; ‘Can we expect consolidation in the viscose supply chain?’ and many others over the two days. (AR)
