14th January 2020
Riyadh International Exhibition Center
The Saudi Plastics and Petrochem Summit will be held concurrently with the 17th edition Saudi Plastics and Petrochemicals Expo and the 18th edition of Saudi Print and Pack Expo at the Riyadh International Convention & Exhibition Center (RICEC), Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Petrochemicals derived from oil and gas feedstocks form the building blocks for products that range from plastic bottles, beauty products, fertilizers and explosives. Demand for plastics is the key driver of the petrochemical industry, superseding traditional sectors such as transportation, logistics, aviation and shipping.
Petrochemicals are particularly important given how prevalent they are in everyday products. They are required to manufacture many parts of the modern energy system, including solar panels, wind turbines, batteries, thermal insulation and electric vehicles.
Petrochemicals are expected to account for over a third of global oil demand growth by 2030 and nearly half of demand growth by 2050, according to the International Energy Agency
Showcasing state-of-the-art innovation in the dynamic field of plastics and petrochemicals, this year’s summit will highlight the significance of refinery to petrochemicals integration, technological advances in the industry 4.0 era and sustainability measures such as circular economy and waste management being implemented by these organization’s to diminish their environmental impact.
The Saudi Plastics and Petrochem Summit will be held on 14th of January 2020. The Summit will also host an Exhibition Pavilion which will feature an exclusive platform enabling innovative solution providers to showcase their products.
The Saudi Plastics and Petrochem Summit will align business strategy with industry dynamics to benefit from emerging opportunities, bringing together senior stakeholders, industry professionals, public and private sector representatives, industry experts, decision-makers, influencers and solution providers globally and highlight dynamic transformation in the sectors which received substantial investment from the Government in line with the roadmap presented by Saudi Vision 2030.
