14th Annual GPCA Forum
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. At the same time demand for chemicals is increasing rapidly driven by high population growth, a rise in middle class income, urbanization and improving living standards. Asia will account for most of this growth – and increasingly supply – as chemical demand continues to shift East. These rapidly changing market dynamics will require industry players to develop a new set of strategies for a new era of opportunities and growth that focus on efficient resource utilization and higher asset productivity to retain and enhance their cost leadership.
The 14th Annual GPCA Forum will take place from 3-5 December 2019 at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, UAE, and address the theme of ‘Winning through Strategic Partnerships’. The 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.
The Annual GPCA Forum has cemented its reputation as the foremost gathering of the chemical and petrochemical industry in the Arabian Gulf region and earned international recognition as an important global platform for the exchange of ideas and providing unparalleled networking opportunities. Each year, more than 2,100 international chemical executives gather in Dubai to gain essential information, make new business connections and renew existing relationships.
