The petrochemical industry continues to recover from the global recession and following on from last year’s successful event, which attracted over 1,300 delegates. This year’s theme will be ‘Moving Downstream – Creating Added Value and Sustainable Growth’.

Having capitalised on feedstock advantage, GPCA member companies in the coming decade will be challenged to capture further, sustainable value creating opportunities. These lie downstream and are linked to the development of industrial clusters across the region, particularly those being established to provide materials for the automotive, flexible packaging and appliances sectors, according to industry experts.

“The GPCA Annual Forum remains a key date in the industry diary, providing attendees with a fantastic opportunity to access and network with industry leaders and decision-makers, and gain the latest market intelligence. At this early stage the programme has already attracted top-level speakers from leading chemical companies and we expect the 2011 Forum to be the most successful yet” said Dr Abdulwahab Al Sadoun, Secretary General, GPCA.

Delegates attending the Forum will benefit from networking opportunities and will get a chance to listen top-level speakers including Mohammed Al Mady, Chairman, GPCA; Vice Chairman and CEO, Sabic; Hamad Rashid Al Mohannadi, Deputy Chairman, Qatar Petroleum; Jim Gallogly, CEO, LyondellBasell; Peter L Cella, CEO, Chevron Phillips; Tom Crotty, Chairman, Ineos ChlorVinyls; Luther C. Kissams IV, President, Albemarle Corporation and Dr Fahad Al Mubarak, Chairman and Managing Director, Morgan Stanley Saudi Arabia.
