Fecc Annual Congress 2016
“Inspiring innovation in a global economy”

This year the Fecc Annual Congress will take place from June 6-8, 2016 in Istanbul, Turkey. This year's theme is based around 'Inspiring innovation in a global economy' and aims to provide delegates with tools on how to successfully move their businesses forward despite the demanding times.

Developing on the successful structure of last year's congress in Greece, this year's programme includes parallel sessions on the first afternoon and Claude Michel as inspirational speaker whose presentation will tell us about the incredible 'Solar Impulse' project. Besides a number of presentations on future innovation other topics include an overview of the Turkish chemical distribution market, private equity for expansion capital and succession planning and distribution in Asia - risk & opportunities for European players.

The Fecc Annual Congress is without doubt one of the most important dates in the European chemical industry's calendar. Hundreds of delegates, from business leaders to stakeholders, attend every year. To register visit www.fecc-congress.com
