Clearly the events of 2020 will stay in the memory for a long time, and their consequences may lead to significant shifts in the global and regional economies. The petrochemical industry is no exception: the first half of 2020 revealed a series of trends, which, if developed, could dramatically affect the industry landscape and its prospects.
Among the pending questions are: How quickly will petrochemical products demand rebound? Have all the market participants coped with changes in supply chains? Are there any business areas which managed to benefit from the Covid-19 pandemic, and will they be able to sustain their success?
Our conference will be a platform for discussion of the petrochemical industry’s preliminary results for 2020. The event will offer access to the most up-to-date forecasts for future development. Our experts will discuss in detail the factors which will determine the state of industry in the context of the “new normal”.
Besides the standard live participation and networking, we also invite you to join the conference online and connect from any place convenient for you.

The ban on mass events in Moscow has been lifted by the decree of the Mayor of Moscow dated 9 July 2020. However, some restrictions on intercity and foreign travel are still in place. In the current environment, we are pleased to offer a new format of events combining face-to-face and online participation.
In addition to personal attendance, you can now join the conference from any place that suits you. The isolation has helped us to learn the true importance of meeting in person, but the online format of an event allows expanding the audience to an unlimited extent by connecting participants from around the world.
We will make every effort to ensure that you can maximize the use of different formats.
