Do you wish you had a crystal ball that could tell you what the price of polyethylene will do in 1999; how to hedge the risks associated with resin pricing swings; or whether the automotive market will go in the tank next year?
Plastics News is sponsoring a seminar next month designed to help plastics processors prepare for 1999 and beyond.
The event, ``Plastics News Executive Seminar: Forecast for 1999,'' features discussions on the outlook for key plastics end-markets and raw materials. It also includes an extended session designed to familiarize processors with a fairly new pallet of products to help reduce the risk of unexpected swings in resin pricing. Risk management products have long been available in other industries, but have been offered only recently to resin buyers.
Other speakers will offer insights into key financial trends.
For seminar information, see the page 6 and 7 ads in this issue.
We hope the event will help processors make better decisions in their plans and budgets for the next few years — and perhaps give them the confidence to throw away some foggy crystal balls.
