Fecc Annual Congress 2018
“Shaping successful partnerships for the new market demands”

In today's competitive global market, distributors face not only growing compliance demands but also aim to increase the added value to their partners in the supply chain. The Fecc Annual Congress 2018 aims to provide inspiration to those looking to boost their relations with their suppliers and customers in order to successfully face these challenges.

For many years, chemical distributors at the Congress have stressed the need for greater collaboration in the chemical supply chain in order to seize the market opportunities and develop business models for the future ahead. The upcoming event will explore the current market demands and the expectations both of the suppliers and the customers, as well as the role that chemical distributors play.

Building on the success of the previous edition, the 2-day programme will also focus on the next phase of the Chemical Distribution 4.0 business models, where digitalisation, corporate social responsibility, the circular economy and sustainability are key pillars to the industry

Participants are welcomed to join the Congress in Nice during 4-6 June. More than 200 expected high-level chemical stakeholders are expected to attend. For details, please check out www.fecc.org or contact communications@fecc.org
