Our 16th World Aromatics and Derivatives conference will take place on 8-9 November.

Co-organised with ICIS, it provides an excellent opportunity for delegates to meet and exchange views in the critical end-of-year period.

Amsterdam smallIt features the usual strong line-up of speakers:

Ronald Doesburg, GM for Shell’s Base Chemicals business, will describe how innovation is driving new patterns of supply and demand.
Pieter Platteeuw, Global Business Director, aromatics, for DowDuPont , will ask whether current business optimism can be sustained.
Eric Bischof, VP Corporate Sustainability for Covestro, will identify key issues in creating a more sustainable market.

Other leading speakers including Klaus Ries, VP Global Business Management Styrenic Foams for BASF; Erik Nijhuis, Sales Manager for Vopak; and Rhian O’Connor and Rob Peacock from ICIS will give their views on the major issues along the value chain.

In addition, I will be looking at key macro challenges for the industry – The Trump effect and the move towards protectionism, Brexit and its implications for Europe, and today’s increasingly volatility in energy markets and their geopolitical implications.
