We are thrilled host so many petrochemical professionals under one roof. However, many of you compete with one another so in order to comply with antitrust rules, we should avoid any discussions or comments that may not be appropriate in fact or even in appearance.

In order to not run afoul of the antitrust rules, in either the formal presentations or informal discussions, we ask our attendees to refrain from exchanging or discussing information regarding prices, price changes, discounts, allowances, credit terms and similar subjects.

We ask speakers to be aware of these concerns during their presentations, and suggest all participants are aware also.
