Date: 27th September 2017 - 28th September 2017 Location: Chicago - Illinois - USA

The Impact of Evolving Trends, Environmental Standards &
Consumer Preferences on the Demand of Specialty Surfactants

Following the success of our two European editions and inaugural North American version last year, we are pleased to announce the 2nd edition of our Future of Surfactants Summit North America will take place on the 27th & 28th September 2017, in Chicago, IL.

This year, the conference will give updates on the drivers and trends of the evolving surfactants industry. Over the two days, the event will bring together key industry stakeholders from the entire surfactants value chain: feedstock suppliers, surfactants producers, end-products manufacturers (household & personal care), as well as technology providers, to discuss the industry’s challenges & opportunities through case studies, interactive sessions and panel discussions.

With an in-depth look into the market, for both feedstocks and surfactants, the conference will also explore key industry themes such as sustainability, surfactants performance & application, consumer preferences and bio-based alternatives.

Join us in Chicago to exchange on your point of view and experience with your peers, and engage in excellent networking opportunities.
