PRINCETON, New Jersey, July 24 --

- North America’s Leading Fine and Custom Chemicals Tradeshow Welcomes
Registrants with New Format

Serious buyers and sellers of leading fine and custom chemical companies from
around the world who gather at InformexUSA 2010 will experience even more
focused, more efficient networking opportunities than in the past, allowing them
to connect more precisely with others in their specific market.

The show opens February 16, 2010 in San Francisco, with a new agenda to reflect
a targeted, but separate, focus on pharmaceutical and specialty chemical topics.

The historic focus of Informex has been fine specialty chemicals, custom
chemical manufacturing, and related chemical materials and services, said
Jennifer Jessup, Business Director, Informex.

Exhibitors and attendees expressed the need for a show format tailored to their
specific market; life science applications (pharma, biotech, agro) on the one
hand and broader specialty and industrial chemicals, on the other. Our new
segmented format is in response to that market need.

Informex Specialty programs will include: -- Specialty RD Buyer Showcases
featuring RD speakers from key chemical companies. -- Chemical Licensing
Breakfast Briefing presented by the Licensing Executives Society (LES). -- Green
Chemistry Exchange showcasing sustainable and green chemistry products,
technologies and services. -- Green Chemistry Breakfast Briefing developed in
partnership with the ACS Green Chemistry Institute. -- Specialty Chemical
Pavilion featuring companies serving the specialty and industrial chemical
markets. Informex Pharma programs will include: -- API Pavilion displaying
Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient companies who service both generic and branded
pharmaceuticals. -- Pharma Buyer Showcases to allow exhibitors to hear what
their customers are looking for.

We are happy to see Informex making a conscious effort to focus on specialty
chemicals and getting back to the roots of the show. This is an
under-represented market in US tradeshows and one we are happy to help grow,
said Slaton Fry, Director at FutureFuel Chemical Company.

Informex is committed to providing the most valuable trade show for the fine
and custom chemical industry and will continue to evaluate the current needs and
wants of its exhibitors and attendees.
