The PCI Fibres Conference 2013

EAST SUSSEX, United Kingdom — March 27, 2013 — Reflecting the coverage of our monthly consulting
services, our conference will feature papers on a number of fibres including those in acrylics,
carbon, nylon, polyester, polypropylene, spandex and viscose as well as the raw materials for
these.  There will also be coverage of wool from a leading industry expert and of cotton from
the PCI Group’s own specialist, as well as a strategic view from one of Hong Kong’s leading
commentators.  In addition, this year we have two new items in the programme.  There is a
panel discussion on feedstock supply and also a workshop on the fibres and textiles supplies being
generated in China.
