Brussels -- The World Adhesive & Sealant Conference 2012 has brought together over 900 delegates from over 42 countries representing 362 companies to discuss the future of the Adhesive and Sealant industry.

"Our industry is in good shape and we are optimistic about its future" said Dr. Ramón Bacardit, President of FEICA in his opening speech, "But we need to urgently address the following challenges: endorsing the principles of sustainability, sorting out the raw materials shortages, accelerating and enlarging the technology innovation and finding new fields for value creation."

The exhibition with over 50 companies around the world throughout the entire value chain proved to be a busy arena for business and networking.

"Creating the future" does not stop after the WAC2012 is over. We hope all participants will benefit for some time to come from the findings the WAC2012 programme has offered to generate business in line with sustainability objectives. FEICA thanks the co-organizers, the sponsors, media partners, speakers and moderators, the exhibitors and most importantly you, the participants for the success of the WAC2012.
