Past attendees say it best

Well organised event with complete coverage of the Petrochemicals space including crude, feedstocks, aromatics and olefins. Good attempt to bring banking and risk management into the mix. Very beneficial to attend!

Platts petrochemicals conferences are always quite refreshing with content and a great place to network. They always come up with new ideas to discuss and would recommend to all.

A lot of insight & knowledge from joining this conference. Make me understand the overall picture of petrochemical industry better and have a chance to meet with people from other countries in the same industry.
