Presenting voices of the future for chemical distributors

The European Association of Chemical Distributors (Fecc) welcomes you to this year’s Annual Congress in Sitges (Barcelona area in Spain) on 12–14 June 2019.

The Fecc Annual Congress is the leading event for the European chemical distribution industry, offering a unique platform to communicate to all stakeholders of the chemical distribution supply chain.

This year Fecc will offer participants an attractive programme with a new format: high-level participants have been invited to join two panel sessions where they will debate and share their vision of the future for the chemical distribution industry. The speakers include representatives from all stages of the supply chain, from manufacturers to customers. The panels will be moderated by Katrina Sichel, who has twenty years’ experience in communications as a television producer, event presenter/moderator and campaign director.

The main themes of the panels are:

                     Digitalization and cyber-security

                     Value chain and services for the future

                     Promoting and attracting young and diverse talents into chemical distribution

                     Sustainability, security and safety.

Each panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session, during which our interactive application (Fecc2019APP) will be used for live questions, in addition to the traditional microphone, and will facilitate interactions between the participants. The programme will close with a full day dedicated to networking on 14th June – this will include a tour on a catamaran followed by a networking lunch.

Fecc invites delegates to join and experience first-hand the Congress, which offers a key opportunity for networking in the chemical distribution value chain to generate new businesses and reinforce existing relationships, while also learning about new trends to improve the company’s performance.

The beautiful city of Sitges will host the Congress this year. Located just 35km from Barcelona and 25km from Barcelona-El Prat Airport, Sitges will provide participants a perfect location for networking, with an unforgettable insight on the region's gastronomy and culture.

Fecc would like to thank its congress sponsors who have provided added value to the event and support this unique stakeholders’ gathering in the field of chemical distribution.
