Among the top-level speakers confirmed are:
Since its inception in 2006, the Annual GPCA Forum has attracted a growing number of delegates and an increasingly prestigious line-up of speakers from the region and overseas. More than 1,600 executives attended last year's Forum in December 2011, and 45% of them came from outside the Middle East.
Technology transfer, cross-market collaboration and the active development of local talent are three critical areas for attention if the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) petrochemicals and chemicals sector is to maintain its competitive edge. These will be the hot topics for debate at this year's Forum.
The event will also include a pre-conference seminar, "Exploiting change to deliver value - insights to stay ahead of the competition", presented by chemical consultancy Nexant.
The 7th Annual GPCA Forum, entitled "Sustaining competitiveness in a rapidly changing world", will take place at the Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai.
