Petrochemicals Europe’s event activities
As part of its outreach strategy to the various stakeholders, Petrochemicals Europe was actively engaged in various major stakeholder events across Europe over the past few months.
On almost every occasion, the association signed media partnerships with the organisers, which included free-of-charge conference booths to distribute Petrochemicals Europe’s materials and media coverage to enhance the association’s and the industry’s visibility. For example, Dorothee Arns, Executive Director, delivered speeches at the following events:
- Argus Petrochemical Markets 2018 conference from 22 to 24 May in Antwerp, Belgium
- International Downstream Week (IDW) 2018 from 22 to 25 May in Prague, Czech Republic
- FECC, the European association of chemical distributors, Annual Congress, from 4 to 6 June in Nice, France
At the “International Refining & Petrochemicals Conference Europe” (IRPC), organised by the technical journal, Hydrocarbon Processing, in Milan on 5 & 6 June, Dorothee gave the keynote address. She explained how macroeconomic factors shape the European petrochemical industry. The audience and journal editors alike provided such an enthusiastic feedback that a closer collaboration was agreed: Dorothee was requested to mould the contents of her presentation into an article for one of the next journal issues (130,000 readers world-wide) and Hydrocarbon Processing committed to distribute the Petrochemicals Europe flowchart posters during their upcoming conferences.
