20/20 Vision: Forging New Futures

Geopolitical conflict and energy sustainability are growing concerns for the petrochemical industry across the globe, forcing organizations to adapt to a new future amid a sweeping market shift. How will the industry keep pace with and balance the factors influencing change? Will organizations be able to drive growth amid headwinds? How will the next phase of the industry be different than the past? What does this new ecosystem mean for the future of the petrochemicals market?

The 35th Annual World Petrochemical Conference hosted by IHS Markit will prepare you for market changes coming in the next decade. Hear top executives from major international organizations discuss their strategic plans heading into 2020 and beyond. Listen to discussions on investment trends, energy market transition, government policy and political implications, mergers and more. Attend breakout sessions to get micro-level data on aromatics & fiber intermediates, feedstocks & refining integration, inorganics & derivatives, specialty chemicals and olefins. Participate in special programs and workshops to take a deep dive into transportation and logistics, China and Latin American petrochemical markets, green fertilizer initiatives and technology in refining, petrochemicals and plastics manufacturing.
