The single largest gathering of refining and petrochemical leadership within Europe
4 – 7 November, 2019 | Hilton Warsaw, Poland

As we say goodbye to Cannes, we can only say a massive thank you to the 610 delegates who attended. It was without doubt the best edition yet with a comprehensive 4 days of networking, training, thought-leadership and fun.

The underlying theme at this year’s conference was the role of the downstream industry in the energy transition. Delegates and speakers left with an upbeat mood as we explored renewable plastics, biofuels and the strategic embracing of digitalisation. We look forward to continuing this into 2019 where we will be in Warsaw.

Save the date in your diary for 4th November!

Au revoir!
