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) 20 – 26 February 2017

On behalf of the Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC), it is my pleasure to wish a warm welcome to all participants to this year’s first edition of the Palm Oil Internet Seminar, or POINTERS 2017 proudly organized by MPOC. This is the fourteenth edition overall organized by MPOC since it was launched in 2010.

The advent of the internet and digital medium has proven the single most important development over the past two decades and we at MPOC have embraced this technology to widen our outreach to participants from the world over. The internet is the single most effective medium of communication which allows seminars such as this to be accessible to anyone from anywhere at any time during the duration of the seminar just by the click of a button. Best of all registration and participation is free.

During the last POINTERS in August 2016, MPOC correctly predicted the price of palm oil for 2016 which proves that POINTERS can be a reliable platform for the oils and fats fraternity. For this session, we have gathered the presentations from different spheres of the oils and fats market such as price outlook, oleochemicals and biodiesel. In addition, we have also included a special section on the Pakistan oils and fats market. I am sure that you will find that POINTERS this time will be more interesting.

POINTERS has been acknowledged as an innovative, interactive program which is also thought provoking. We have received positive feedbacks from the oils and fats and business fraternity acknowledging POINTERS as an important tool for oils and fats marketers.

The current number of registered participants which has now exceeded 3,300 is testimony to the growing popularity of our program. Compared to the less than 200 when it was first launched, it is proof that POINTERS has now become a much anticipated program within the global oils and fats fraternity. As with earlier edition of POINTERS, we will not only provide our global oils & fats outlook but we will also present perspectives from market analysts, price forecasters and regional market development experts. These speakers are well informed in their respective fields and will present the latest findings relevant to the commodities market. Feel free to pose questions to any of the speakers as they will be more than happy to respond.

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.

Thank you.
