PHOTOS: MRC Russian Polymers Summit 2011

The second Russian Polymers Summit, organised by MRC and supported by ICIS, took place in Moscow last week. 

One of the keynote speakers was Sibur president Mr Dmitry Konov, captured here in a pre-conference interview with MRC.

There was a light snowfall while they were there, but it had been a lot colder, Irina tells me with disappointment.


The one-day Summit format works very well in this market, with most delegates coming from Russia and the CIS. Questions for the speakers had been submitted online in the weeks before the conference, allowing for some online discussion of the key topics beforehand.


MRC and ICIS took advantage of the event to announce the imminent launch of the ICIS-MRC PET report, now the fifth of our joint weekly pricing reports covering Russia and the CIS.
