Maximum sustainability

Whilst having one of our speakers travel plans severely disrupted by a certain airline pilots strike it was a pleasure to have been able to welcome over seventy people from across Europe attending our conference. It was also more than encouraging to witness the enthusiasm, comments and questioning relating to our topic this year of Sustainability: Challenges & Future Opportunities.

Besides the customary Melton Mowbray lunchtime fare there was plenty of discussion and networking undertaken, so based on this, PRA World will again be looking for a suitable topic for next year’s event. I would also like to thank again our speakers and our sponsors for their support for the event and to be able to work with such people in supporting the Coatings Industry is a pleasure.

With PRA World delivering first class Testing, Market Data, Technical Training and R&D Projects to the industry, we believe we are ideally placed to compliment your internal teams and plans. Next year’s event will probably be at the same location and around early June so please mark your diaries.

Ian Claris – PRA Director
