Top names have been confirmed to speak at NEPIC’s Meet the Members Conference & Expo.

The major North East chemicals networking event, which opens its doors to guests on Wednesday 21 June 2017, brings together manufacturers and suppliers for the sector’s biggest event of the year.

Visitors attending the event at Wynyard Hall’s Grand Marquee, can hear from major manufactures including SABIC UK Petrochemicals, Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies, px Group and Sirius Minerals all focusing on investment and supply chain opportunities for the North East.

As North East England is witnessing its biggest spike in chemical-processing sector investment in a generation, we also welcome Northern Gas Networks, Armstrong Energy and Emerson to outline their involvement in further investment plans billed for the region.

The event also offers the opportunity to keep up to date with the latest business news including important Brexit, Industrial Strategy, Devolution and Northern Powerhouse updates courtesy of PwC and Recognition PR’s, Graham Robb.
