Winning through Strategic Partnerships

The Annual GPCA Forum is the foremost gathering of the chemical and petrochemical industry in the Arabian Gulf.

Each year, more than 2,100 international chemical executives gather in Dubai to gain essential information, make new business connections and renew existing relationships.

“We must accelerate our joint efforts in creating partnerships through consolidation and portfolio exchange. This will create scale and value for our players.”

Leaders of Tomorrow

The Leaders of Tomorrow program is an initiative launched by GPCA and with the support of our members, it aims at building the local human capital in the region. The initiative falls under one of the three pillars of the association which is advocacy by promoting STEM and bridging the gap between academia and the industry. Leaders of Tomorrow is considered as the first official collective step where industry stakeholders collaborate in shaping skills and preparing the future industry leaders with the required skills set.

Innovation Zone

The chemical industry is embracing innovation to usher a new era of growth. In order to stay ahead of the competition chemical companies are rewriting their business models, adopting digitization and diversifying their product portfolios. At the 14th Annual GPCA Forum, we’re proud to introduce a dedicated ‘Innovation Zone’, an inspiring and interactive space for organizations to showcase their latest and innovative solutions and applications that are contributing or have the potential to contribute to the future success of the industry.

Sustainability Zone

The chemical industry is committed towards contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Governments and businesses have realized the importance of sustainability and are pushing it to encourage the chemical industry to attain a promising, sustainable future. Steadfast in its resolve to support the industry in these endeavours, GPCA is proud to bring back its sustainability initiative on a larger, more enhanced scale this year at the 14th Annual GPCA Forum.
