SINGAPORE (ICIS)–The Gulf Petrochemical and Chemicals Association (GPCA) will hold its annual forum for the first time in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on 6-8 December 2022.

The 16th Annual GPCA Forum will be themed “Chemistry in Action: Shaping a Sustainable Future”, the association said in a statement late on Tuesday.

The previous GPCA Forum was held in Dubai, UAE last year after it was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19 travel restrictions around the world.

The 2021 annual forum in Dubai attracted some 1,500 delegates, 25% fewer than the pre-pandemic edition in 2019.

The 2019 annual forum was attended by just over 2,000 registered delegates.

The GPCA is the main networking event for the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), the region’s petrochemical industry and the wider Middle East.

The GCC includes the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain and Kuwait.
