FAIRLAWN, Ohio—Not every industry conference lets you leave a champion, but the International Latex Conference is different.
The event gave attendees the chance to test their industry knowledge during a team trivia program that has become a popular staple for the agenda. The latex trivia challenge, hosted by Conference Chairman Jim Finn, saw Team Orange emerge victorious. In addition to earning bragging rights, the winning team's members received prize drawing tickets for the Casino Night event that was organized and sponsored by Akron Dispersions.
Both the the trivia and casino games prove that networking is at the heart of the International Latex Conference, which this year featured 19 presentations from industry experts who covered a range of topics such as alternative sources for latex, feedstock trends and innovations in the field. Throughtout the two-day schedule, attendees could chat with colleagues during regular refreshment breaks sponsored by RCMA Americas Inc.
Additionally, a complementary lunch, sponsored by Centrotrade Minerals and Metals Inc., was offered on the first day as was an evening networking reception, sponsored by Tiarco Chemical.
