The Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA) is pleased to announce that the 10th edition of its Fertilizer Convention will take place on 24-26 September 2019 at Kempinski Hotel Muscat, Oman under the theme: ‘Transformation: A New Era for the Agri-nutrients Industry’.

The Fertilizer Convention returns to Oman following one of its most successful editions to date hosted in the Sultanate’s capital in 2018, which attracted over 300 delegates from the region and the world to network, exchange best practice and learn about the latest technology and market trends in the fertilizer industry.

With the industry now engaging in consolidation, the fertilizers sector is gearing up for a transformative, higher value-added future. To ensure its sustainable growth, GCC fertilizer producers must innovate new products and business models. Diversifying their portfolios by developing enhanced quality products and capitalizing on opportunities that arise in key emerging markets will be crucial.

The convention will aim to discuss and debate subjects of great industry significance such as, disruptive technologies, digitalization, integration, future opportunities in agri-nutrients and many more which are aimed at supporting collaboration along the value chain and fostering food security.

The 10th edition of this prestigious event will focus on driving value through innovation to create strong growth for the agri-nutrients industry. Workshops focused on human capital and technical sessions on environmental stewardship will provide further opportunities to learn about best practices from the region and globally at this important industry platform.

The conference sessions will focus on:

  • Global and regional regulatory perspective on food security
  • Disruptive technologies enabling sustainable agriculture
  • Digitalization in the agri-nutrient industry
  • Market scenarios in fertilizers
