ICIS Training goes to Frankfurt

The ICIS Petrochemicals & Polymers training seminars went to Frankfurt this week. Nigel, Peter and Linda said the course delegates were a good cross section of buyers and sellers, and very keen. By pure coincidence, two polymer business partners – one producer and his customer – found themselves on the same training course.

Everyone was pleased to get a great deal on the hotel rooms at the Intercontinental which, in a clear sign of the times, were going for €99 a head for bed, breakfast and free wifi, instead of the usual room rate in the €200s. Linda’s only complaint was that the bottled water in the rooms was an eye-watering €8.80 for 75 cl. The setting on the river was particularly attractive in this week’s glorious summer weather, and our trainers were able to sit out on the hotel terrace after their arduous first day of training and observe a gymnastic festival which was taking place along the waterfront.
Even the trainers learnt something, and Peter is at last going to alter the the first morning’s timetable which has a tendency to run seriously late once the questions start. The Blog hears that one of Peter’s new slides, sourced from LyondellBasell to illustrate the use of polypropylene fibre in textiles, proved very popular with the male delegates (see below).
