FALMOUTH, ME - Combining more than 25 years of experience in working with the titanium dioxide supply chain and the industrial pigments and colorants sectors, Smithers Rapra is hosting the Pigment and Color Science Forum 2014 and the TiO2 World Summit 2014 on October 7-9, 2014, at the Le Westin Montréal in Montréal, Canada.

"We are very excited to co-locate the Pigment and Color Science Forum together with the TiO2 World Summit and allow attendees the opportunity to hear from experts in both topic areas and to meet with more potential clients and customers at the networking events. This also means an added benefit for sponsors and exhibitors as they'll be able to reach both audiences in our combined exhibit hall," said Andrew Smaha, Conference Director for Smithers Rapra.

"Both events are dedicated to bringing together key members of the pigments supply chain to discuss the latest applications, technologies and processes, and we look forward to building on these synergies to create a truly memorable experience for all attendees. By co-locating, the business executives, R&D leaders, academics, government policy makers, stakeholders, and investors that make up the key audience for both events will have more opportunities to build strategic relationships and greater access to the most current research and information."

More than 350 members of the pigment, TiO2 and color cosmetics industries are anticipated to attend this year's combined event.

The Pigment and Color Science Forum 2014 will cover market trends, intellectual property matters and new advances in plastics, cosmetics, paints and coatings, multifunctional pigments, industrial design, paper and printing inks, consumer electronics, and automotive applications.
