Speakers to Discuss Opportunities in Pigment Industry at IntertechPira's Future of Pigments 2011

PORTLAND, Maine -- IntertechPira is pleased to announce the preliminary agenda for Future of Pigments 2011, which will take place at the Maritim Hotel Berlin in Berlin, Germany, Oct. 24-26, 2011. The conference will unite color and pigments experts from across the globe to discuss the major issues and opportunities currently facing the industry.

As an added benefit for delegates, the Future of Pigments will be held concurrently with Color Cosmetics Summit, allowing attendees to pay just one conference fee yet be able to attend sessions from either event. There will also be a combined exhibit hall and networking functions, providing additional opportunities for the two sectors to mingle. The conferences first co-located in 2010, which proved to be very popular with attendees.

"We received a lot of positive feedback from our delegates following last year's co-located conferences," said Christine Groff, Conference Director, IntertechPira. "Since there's so much cross-over between industrial pigments and cosmetic colorants, it just makes sense to offer them in conjunction with one another to maximize the value for our attendees. It also provides added exposure for our sponsors and exhibitors since they will be able to meet with attendees from two events."

Among the presenters scheduled to speak at the Future of Pigments are Dr. Bansi L. Kaul, CEO and Director of R&D, MCA Technologies GmbH; Dr. Hendrik Kammler, Head of Segment Additives, BU Masterbatches, Clariant International AG; Dr. Matthias Kolb, Executive Buyer, Global Leader Core Strategy Team Pigments, DuPont Performance Coatings GmbH; Dr. Gerhard Pfaff, Senior Director R&D Pigments and Cosmetics, Merck KGaA; Dr. Trevor S. Sayer, Founder and Managing Director, Expertas Ltd.; and Ron Schuck, Research Manager, Penn Color, Inc.
