ICIS is delighted to announce that the 9th ICIS World Olefins Conference will take place on Wednesday 12th March 2014. This conference has once again been scheduled to take place the day before the March EPL meeting, and this year will take place in the beautiful city of Madrid.

Following a rollercoaster 2012, where swings in price were commonplace due a hyper-cautious approach to inventory levels amid heightened volatility in the upstream crude oil and naphtha markets, 2013 has been a somewhat more stable affair.

However changes in the European refining landscape and the continual influx of advantaged feedstock from the US, means there are questions around the market outlook for 2014. 

Will the stability continue?  Can European crackers continue to show resilience or is more rationalization likely? What impact are feedstock trends having on co-product availability?

The 9th ICIS World Olefins Conference will look to address these questions and provide you with the latest market information and industry insights to ensure you are equipped to overcome these challenges in the coming months.

The 2013 event boasted:

  • 150+ industry professionals...

  • ...from 82 companies...

  • ...representing 26 countries worldwide

  • 8 industry experts sharing their insights

  • highly focussed presentations

  • 3+ networking hours

  • All in 8 hours!

And we expect more attendees in 2014……
