Virtual 11th GPCA Agri-Nutrients Conference

The agri-nutrients industry plays a leading role in supporting this transition. There is a growing need for this critical industry to collaborate with governments and the value chain to improve agricultural productivity and provide nutritious and sufficient food for all. To avoid disruptions in agricultural production and to ensure food security, the GCC agri-nutrients industry will have to embrace new avenues of growth, including boosting international cooperation, exploring new markets, strengthening domestic supply chains, reducing their environmental footprint, and deploying advanced technology to maintain a competitive edge. Exploring new opportunities today will help build resiliency and sustainability, while preparing for potential future crises.

Now in its 11th edition, the GPCA Agri-nutrients Conference will take place virtually from 15-16 September 2021. Held under the theme ‘Forging new avenues for a food secure future’ the dialogues at the conference will present a host of opportunities for the agri-nutrients industry to contribute positively to the food security agenda, share progressive technologies transforming the agricultural food chain, shed light on the breakthroughs and innovations in the agri-nutrients sector and discuss the trends shaping the overall industry.

15th Annual GPCA Forum

The adoption of modern digital technologies has not only increased productivity, but also supported the development of new and innovative business ideas. The pandemic further accelerated the drive towards decarbonization, which in turn is supporting several nations’ vision to meet their net zero carbon emission targets. With clean hydrogen gaining traction around the world, it presents a new opportunity for the industry to embark on the journey of energy transition. In response to policy needs and evolving consumer preferences, investors too are taking decarbonization seriously, further intensifying environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts. Incorporating ESG strategies is helping build competitive advantage and advancing the industry’s sustainability agenda.
The rapidly changing market conditions and sudden disruptions is requiring industry leaders to devise tactics for a new era of growth for alternative feedstocks, waste management and recycling, and developing new circular business models for a sustainable future. Chemical companies are building on their unique strengths and capabilities to redesign an industry backed on sustainability and innovation.
The 15th Annual GPCA Forum will take place from 7-9 December 2021 at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, UAE, and will address the theme, “Redefine. Reshape. Reinvent. The chemical industry in a post-pandemic reality”. This edition will propagate key messages to redefine the challenges, reinvent strategies to capitalize on market opportunities and reshape a renewed future for the chemical industry, one fuelled with a sense of purpose. Bringing together stalwarts and industry experts from across the globe, this edition will stir strategic conversations, build strong synergies to thrive in a new reality, thus, laying the foundation for a collaborative, sustainable, and successful recovery.
