HMC Polymers was pleased to welcome our customers and agents to our annual seminar on Friday, June 2nd. Ninety-four customers and fifty agents attended the information seminar held at Eastin Grand Hotel, Sathorn in Bangkok which was divided into two segments.

The first half morning session was for our customers and presented information on the 2017 Economy & Market Outlook with particular emphasis on the increasingly important subject of sustainability, while the second half of the seminar in the afternoon was for our agents offering a useful overview of new products and applications.

This popular seminar program has become a regular event and useful way for our valued customers to learn more about how business is trending in the region and for our agents to learn more about our PP product portfolio and engage with HMC technical staff with specific questions.

Based on the sustainability focus the seminar was entitled "Toward a Sustainable Future." This is a subject of key focus for HMC across all aspects of its business operations and interactions with employees, customers, stakeholders and the communities in which we operate

In addition to the seminar there were product displays and refreshments located in the @Surasak Foyer representing key markets and applications which allowed attendees to inspect actual products and discuss specifics with our team members.
