RIO DE JANEIRO (ICIS)--Attendance at the 30th Latin American Petrochemical Association (APLA) annual meeting in Rio de Janeiro is nearing the record set in 2007, when 823 delegates participated in Argentina, an official said on Tuesday.

“We have 815 delegates registered as of now,” APLA marketing executive Fernando Poppi said on the last day of the event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

That compares with 616 registered delegates in Mexico City in 2009.

Poppi said delegates travelled to Rio de Janeiro from at least 33 countries, representing around 240 companies.

APLA is expected to announce the venue for next year’s conference later on Tuesday.

It was rumoured at the event that Rio de Janeiro could host the conference again in 2011, but Poppi declined to comment.
