Palm Oil Internet Seminar
Palm Oil Internet Seminar (POINTERS) is a web-based seminar concept where updates on developments in the oils and fats sector will be brought promptly to the industry circles, accessible at the click of a button from their own PC, mobile web or laptop wherever they are.

The idea is to bring about convenience, time and cost savings, as well as meaningful information sharing that connects everyone to the oils and fats industry efficiently and effectively. All papers will be posted on the site for one week and participants will be able to download the paper and post questions to the authors, who have lent their expertise, during that one week period.

Active participation from among the audience is expected to make the Internet Palm Oil Seminars more useful and meaningful. Register now and be the first to take advantage of valuable updates from the oils and fats industry in an innovative way.

Palm Oil Internet Seminar (POINTERS) 25 – 31 August 2014

On behalf of the Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC), I wish a warm welcome to all participants to second edition of the Palm Oil Internet Seminar, or POINTERS 2014 organized by MPOC which is the ninth edition overall organized by MPOC since it was launched in 2010.

POINTERS is a bi-annual program which was first launched in 2010 and since the launch, MPOC has received many accolades from the oils and fats and business fraternity acknowledging POINTERS as an innovative and interactive program promoted by MPOC. With the advent of the rapid development of the internet and digital medium, MPOC has embraced this new technology to take the opportunity to widen our outreach to participants from the world over. The internet is a most effective medium of communication which allows this seminar to be accessible at anytime from anywhere during the duration of the seminar. Best of all registration and participation are free.

As testament to the growing popularity of our program, I am happy to inform that POINTERS now have almost 2,200 registered and active participants compared to less than 200 when it was first launched. As with earlier edition of POINTERS, we will not only provide our global oils & fats outlook but we will also present perspective from planters, price forecasters and regional market developments. The speakers are well informed in their fields and will present the latest updates and trends in the commodities market with a special focus on palm oil. Feel free to pose questions to any of the speakers as they will be more than happy to respond.

As an added incentive, a price forecast contest is also held in conjunction with this seminar with an attractive prize awarded to the winner.

I look forward to your active participation in POINTERS and trust you will find the seminar to be both insightful as well as knowledge enhancing. We also invite sponsors to advertise their products and business opportunities to help our participants to fully benefit from taking part in the seminar.

Thank you for your participation
