The Annual Forum, GPCA’s flagship event, is returning to Dubai for its 14th edition on 3-5 December 2019 at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, UAE, where global and regional industry leaders will address the theme of ‘Winning through Strategic Partnerships’.

The chemical industry is operating in a complex business landscape underpinned by rapidly changing regulations, constant technology disruption, increased market uncertainty and evolving customer demands.

The Annual GPCA Forum will examine strategies that chemical companies should adopt to navigate new market complexities, capture profitable growth and consolidate their leadership positions.

It will bring together industry leaders from the region and the world to share inspirational case studies on how to deliver value for shareholders, business and society, how to innovate for the future and address key challenges and the role of supporting the development of a competitive downstream industry in the GCC.

As part of an engaging program, the forum will address the importance of formulating strategic partnerships to deliver value, industry consolidation in the Arabian Gulf, the role of innovation in the agri-nutrient industry, and the importance of chemical value parks for the industry’s long term success.

Starting from humble beginning back in 2006, the Annual GPCA Forum has grown in prestige and stature and cemented its reputation as the foremost gathering of the chemical and petrochemical industry in the Arabian Gulf region.

The forum has earned international recognition as an important global platform for the exchange of ideas and providing unparalleled networking opportunities, attracting more than 2,100 international chemical executives each year to gain essential information, make new business connections and renew existing relationships.
