2017 Conference Highlights
FEICA is proud to announce the 2017 European Adhesive and Sealant Conference & Expo, set in Forte Village, Santa Margherita di Pula, Sardinia, Italy, from 13-15 September 2017.
Year-on-year FEICA manages to attract a record number of industry leaders to discuss market drivers and trends, innovation, sustainability and technological advancements. The FEICA Conference and EXPO is firmly established as the premier event for Europe’s adhesive and sealant industry, providing essential insights into the key issues affecting the industry and great networking opportunities for formulators, customers and raw materials suppliers to discuss the latest trends and wider business environment.
This year’s conference continues our recent overall theme of the pursuit of growth with a particular focus on innovation.
Business Forum “Driving Innovation”
The theme of this year’s business forum is “Driving Innovation”. Again, we will have highly regarded keynote speakers, followed by a panel discussion on innovation.
Innovation can be stimulated from many directions: “pull” from our customers, “push” from suppliers, from competitors or new entrants to the market, learning from other industries, and, internally, from your own people, working in a culture that nurtures innovation. At the Business Forum, professionals representing various links in our supply chain will share their perspectives on innovation and the growth opportunities it has brought them, providing some useful learning points for your own innovation process.
Parallel Breakout Sessions on Thursday 14 and Friday 15 September 2017 offer you a choice of important topics such as innovation, new opportunities and ideas, technological breakthroughs, research & development, new product and market applications, new equipment technology, sustainable development and regulatory impact on the industry.
