  • Axiall Corporation

    "The PEC conference was beneficial to Axiall because of the access to owners and contractors that are executing projects with risk profiles that are similar to projects that we are considering. The speakers had good experiences that they were willing to share. The networking was professional and very well managed "

    "Many of my customers (plant management, licensors, EPC/FEED engineering companies) were represented at the conference.

The PEC was arranged in such a way that I was able to achieve these objectives."
