Our 17th World Aromatics and Derivatives conference takes place on 7/8 November in Amsterdam.  You need to register now as the Early Bird discount ends on Friday.

Co-organised with ICIS, it provides an excellent opportunity for delegates to meet and exchange views in the critical end-of-year period. It features the usual strong line-up of speakers:

Daniel Holton, Global Base Chemicals Executive for ExxonMobil will discuss how the industry can enable growth in a responsible manner.
Yu Jing, from China’s authoritative China International Chemical Consulting Corporation, will describe the current landscape and the outlook for the domestic market.
Daniel Cohen, from BNP Paribas’ Energy and Petrochemicals Origination team will update on oil market developments and the role of hedging strategies.

Other leading speakers include a senior representative from Agilyx (INEOS Styrolution’s partner in polystyrene recycling), plus Rhian O’Connor and Rob Peacock from ICIS will give their views on key issues along the major value chains.

In addition, I will be looking at key macro challenges for the industry – The Trump effect and the impact of tariffs, as well as the growing importance of geo-politics and  the implications of Brexit for Europe.
