The conference will feature world class speakers from highly respected companies including BASF, The Dow Chemical Company, COSCO, Maersk Line, and LyondellBasell, and will cover topics such as port congestion and increasing capacity across transportation modes (rail, trucking, marine),across both Plastic Resin and Bulk Liquid Petrochemical sectors. Dupré CEO Reggie Dupré will join a panel concerning port congestion.
Organisers promise this year’s conference will be bigger and better than any before, featuring a brand new multi-track agenda which allows delegates to join focused sessions based on their focus in either Plastic Resins or Bulk Liquid. Additionally, on opening night, delegates will be treated to a networking drinks reception at the Omni Galleria, which will gather the movers and shakers of North America’s petrochemical supply chain market for a party to remember.
Although in its early years, this firmly established conference is well attended by Producers, Transportation Companies (rail, 3PLs, shipping, trucking), Ports and vendors alike, and organisations who attended in previous years have spoken very highly of the format, speakers and topics covered, with Brent Railey, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company saying “The conference is a great opportunity to hear from and meet the key players in the resin export sector: Producers, Warehousing, Packagers, and Trucking companies.”
Building on the success of previous years, the event’s organisers aim to focus on topics and issues that are critical to this constantly-changing industry, and to bring together the “most innovative and forward thinking petrochemical producers & transportation companies” who can contribute to new thinking on driving efficiency, reliability and transparency across the petrochemical supply chain.
Mel Pinks, Commercial Director at Odfjell promises the conference will be a “A valuable conference for all functions of the US Gulf reliant petrochemical industry, detailing forward capacity projections and the associated constraints.”
