Dr. Ron Felber Will be Returning as a Keynote Speaker at the 2013 NCCA Annual Conference

NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J., Jan. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Ron Felber, President/CEO of Chemetall Americas, returns as a keynote speaker at the 2013 National Coil Coating Association (NCCA) Annual Conference to be held April 22-24, 2013 in Orlando, Florida (USA). Dr. Felber, who also delivered keynote addresses for the conference in 2009 and 2010, will concentrate on the "The Myth of Globalization", which was the cover story in the September/October 2012 issue of Coil World.

In his talk, Dr. Felber will discuss his findings on the accepted notion of globalization, the interchange of views, cultures, and other forces, such as financial markets, on a world-wide scale. Dr. Felber argues that globalization is the cause of downturned economies and likens globalization to a "tsunami as it withdraws from the carnage it has left behind". Proposals to resolve the effects of globalization are presented as well.

"I am fortunate that the NCCA has invited me to deliver the keynote presentation in 2013" said Dr. Felber. "I look forward to sharing my views with an astute and engaged audience."
