Argus Fertilizers 2023. Caspian, Black Sea and Eastern European markets Conference

Argus invites you to take part in the Argus Fertilizers 2023. Caspian, Black Sea and Eastern European markets conference, to be held on 14-15 September 2023 in Istanbul, Turkey.

Register Agenda Partnership

The fertilizers market went through numerous changes, price fluctuations and transport challenges last year, with tighter export and transit restrictions affecting logistics and pricing.

The volatility of fertilizer prices and logistical constraints have created uncertainty for producers and transporters alike, forcing them to minimise risks — sometimes to the detriment of consumers.

Rising production of nitrogen fertilizers in the Caspian region — possible because of reliable access to feedstock natural gas— has allowed manufacturers to ensure products can reach export markets. At the same time, the region has been overcoming logistical challenges by building new terminals and specialised transshipment facilities, while expanding the capacity of railways, seaborne transport and ports. Trading companies are introducing new tools to deliver vital products to consumers all over the world.

In Istanbul, attendees will address key themes for the coming years — the products, volumes and delivery methods that will define Caspian and Black Sea exports.

Standard conference rate € 2000
