Countdown to the event

Welcome to The 4th ICIS World Surfactants Conference

“Wealth of information”
Senior Manager, SABIC, attendee at the 3rd ICIS World Surfactants Conference 2013

Erratic spot market activity for key surfactant feedstocks, new production capacities in Asia (with much more planned) and the continuing rise of shale gas in the US have all played a role in changing the dynamics of the surfactants market in 2013.

What is the outlook for the surfactants industry in 2014 and beyond?

Join a global audience of key market players at the 4th ICIS World Surfactants Conference to hear comprehensive presentations from industry experts which will address, dissect and evaluate the key drivers which will affect the market in the coming 12 months.

This intensive 1.5 day conference will take you through the whole value chain; from feedstocks to end users; distributors to technical innovators who will provide strategic insights and deliver the information you need to assess the market and make those all important strategic business decisions in 2014.

PLUS delegate feedback told us that other key end-markets for surfactants was a hot topic. Therefore we have responded to this feedback by dedicating the whole of day 2 of the conference to this area and will feature presentations on EOR, oil and gas, agriculture, food and other non-detergent and personal care applications.

The 2013 event boasted:

 170+ industry professionals...
 ...from 100 companies...
 ...representing 18 countries worldwide
 19 industry experts sharing their insights
 18 highly focussed presentations
 6+ networking hours
 All in 1.5 days!

And we expect more attendees in 2014……
