The 11th edition of GPCA PlastiCon will be held under the theme ‘Circular Economy: The New Engine for Value Creation’. This year’s conference will take place from 18-19 March 2020 at the Oberoi Hotel, Dubai, UAE. Leading polymer producers, brand owners, regulators, plastic processors, manufacturers and technology providers will share their inspiring experiences and expertise in innovation and recycling to promote a circular economy within the plastics industry.
The program this year will look to answer key questions:
- How do we create an effective after-use plastics economy?
- How will innovation ensure improvements in end-of-life recyclability and high performance of recycled material?
- How do we prevent leakage of plastics and ensure increased re-usability and inclusion of recycled content?
- How can value chain collaboration accelerate the development of a circular economy within the GCC?
