LONDON—UTECH North America will be held on June 4-5, 2014, at the Convention Center in Charlotte, N.C.
Crain Communications, which publishes Urethanes Technology International, said the event will be independent of U.S. trade associations. It is designed to connect suppliers and buyers from across the polyurethane industry.
Crain Communications says the new event will fit its existing portfolio of exhibitions and conferences including UTECH Europe, UTECH Asia and PU China.
Sue Rothwell, business development director at Crain Communications, said the company is responding to industry demand and intended to "bring our successful formula to North America."
Rothwell added: "We have already had very strong interest from key players in the global and U.S. polyurethanes market wanting to take a booth at the exhibition and technology and innovation leaders wishing present a paper at the conference."
Urethanes Technology International is a sister publication to Rubber & Plastics News.
