In spring 2011, iBIB2011, the first ever international directory of major suppliers of bio-based plastics and composites, will be published as a means of opening up a range of new customers to companies in the bio-materials sector.
The aim of iBIB2011 is to put industrial suppliers and customers in contact with each other. Two major characteristics of new markets such as bio-based plastics and composites are insider knowledge and a lack of transparency, which prevent the sector from developing as quickly as it might. The iBIB2011 is designed to help firms to find the best bio-based solutions available worldwide.
The market for bio-based plastics and composites continues to grow and is now predominantly international, so this new edition will be entirely in English and contain information about companies, associations and R&D from every continent. nova-Institut has already published the BIB09 and BIB2010 Business Directories, distributing over 10,000 copies in print and PDF formats to potential industrial customers. Both publications were principally aimed at the German- speaking market, but in response to considerable demand from North and South America as well as Asia, next years directory will appear in an expanded, exclusively English-language edition.
The aim is to reach about 20,000 potential clients through the combined print and PDF versions. The cost of a double page in the iBIB2011 including an entry in the iBIB2011-online database is 1,000 (plus VAT, where applicable) for companies. Research institutes and associations pay 700 plus VAT for a single page, which also includes an online database entry. The deadline for registration is 15th January 2011.
