The First "Cloud Summit" in PU Industry

 

    The forum lasted for 10 days. 28 well-known scholars and experts from global polyurethane and new materials industry reported on more than 20 research topics, and participated in 4 theme salons organized by Chem366. They exchanged on topics such as industrial policy, environmental protection, recycling, sustainable innovation, and frontier polyurethane technologies. They also discussed how chemical companies should promote sustainable innovation amid the COVID-19 epidemic. By exchanging ideas, they aimed to promote sustainable development of the polyurethane industry. It was the first time that an online + offline summit had been held in polyurethane industry.

 

    For the first time, the forum was held on the "cloud". Compared with previous forums, this one as a global conference highlighted the frontier PU technologies, the new concepts of lifestyle, and the opportunities brought by emerging industries. Without time and space constraints, it improved communication efficiency by enabling putting questions, interacting and answering questions on the cloud. The forum helped participating companies publicize themselves as the economy hit by the epidemic was recovering, make their businesses more intelligent and internationalized. The forum focused on the application of polyurethanes in the fields such as smart home, new-energy vehicles, cold chain logistics, 5G, LNG carrier, high-speed railway, aerospace, biomedicine, and novel blowing agents. More than 12,000 viewers around the globe viewed it 150,000 times, posting more than 6,000 comments. Over 260 questions were answered online and offline.
