Top-level Endorsements for our Industry Leading Events

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

Axiall Corporation

axiall

Many of the topics and speakers were interesting. Good availability to meet the speakers following their presentations. Excellent time management throughout both days. Plenty of time available for good networking. Good venue and location for the conference.

Look forward to seeing you again later this year at another Petchem Update conference.

Linde Engineering

Linde Engineering

Many of my customers (plant management, licensors, EPC/FEED engineering companies) were represented at the conference. My objective in attending PEC was to learn about some of the challenges facing new ethylene, LNG and MTP plant construction, as well as connecting with key contacts. The PEC was arranged in such a way that I was able to achieve these objectives.

Nalco Champion

Nalco Champion

As this was a new conference I had set my expectations to a lower level. However the quality of the speakers, panel participants and subject matter combined with the audience participation was excellent.

SNC-Lavalin

SNC-Lavalin

Great forum for discussion of direction and challenges facing the petrochemical industry.

AVEVA

AVEVA

The 2015 PEC conference combined relevant topics such as risks management during FEL, labour shortages and ethane cracking with key personnel from the petrochemical industry.

CDI Engineering

CDI Engineering

This was a well-organized event. A very diverse group of both presenters and attendees. I look forward to another round of discussions and updates.

Samsung Engineering America

Samsung Engineering America

The conference was thought provoking, sometimes unrealistic from the owner prospective with project outcomes, other times very insightful with owners providing clear results as to actual project outcomes.

Arkema Inc

Arkema Inc

I learned a lot about the industry in just 2 days that would have taken weeks of research on the internet.

Rider Hunt International

Rider Hunt International

For an Asian contractor, the conference was an eye-opener on issues facing US Owners-EPCs-Vendors.

Samsung Engineering America

Samsung Engineering America

The forum allowed for an elevated level of networking and valuable information exchange. The venue was right sized - supporting effective interaction with many. Industry and economic development leaders were present and shared their insights with thought-provoking discussions and presentations. I look forward to next year.
