Never one to sink to gossip and trivia itself, the Blog couldn't help but overhear a few choice titbits at the Aromatics Conference:
- One well-known trader, currently resting between jobs after an Asian holiday, is about to join (in January) another trading house, the name of which is apparently common knowledge around the business.
- Employees of a major petchems company who are currently being relocated to a more mountainous country are the focus of some unwelcome extensive attention from their home local tax authorities.
- The new owner of a petchem company dear to the Blog's heart could be named in the coming weeks.
- The circular atrium of the conference hotel, the Berlin Grand Westin, was the location for the filming of The Bourne Supremacy.
