Dear Colleagues,

I hope my message finds you well.

As a precautionary measure to safeguard the health and safety of citizens and guests in the United Arab Emirates, we at the Gulf Petrochemical and Chemicals Association (GPCA) have decided to postpone the GPCA 2020 PlastiCon, which was scheduled to be held from 18 – 19 March in Dubai.

We will be announcing the new event dates in due course.
We would like to thank you in advance for your understanding in the matter and are hopeful for your support once the new event dates are finalised.

As the international and regional community continue to work together to defeat any imminent health threat to citizens across the world, the health and safety of our employees, partners and friends remains our top priority.

We thank you and your team for your efforts and look forward to welcoming you to our future events.

 

Kind regards,
Dr. Abdulwahab Al Sadoun
Secretary General
Gulf Petrochemicals & Chemicals Association (GPCA)

ABOUT GPCA PLASTICON

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 Park Hyatt 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?

ABOUT CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Circular Economy by itself, strives to lower operating costs but also champion innovation and development of new products that further add value to the system. Creating an effective after-use plastics economy is the first step towards closing the loop. Not only is it critical to capture more material value at every stage which will in turn enhance resource productivity, it will also prove to be a direct economic enticement to avoid leakage into the environment.
