Major Chemical Processing Sector Event takes place next week

A major chemical-process sector conference will take place on Teesside this week and BPE will be at the centre of the action.

The Meet the Members Conference and Exhibition, organised by the North East Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC), will welcome 600 delegates and 100 exhibitors to Wynyard Hall’s Grand Marquee on Wednesday 19th June.

Influential speakers from global companies will be taking to the stage to present process industry investment highlights and showcase potential business growth and supply chain opportunities.

Confirmed speakers to-date include world class companies such as Sirius Minerals, global chemical firm Venator, consumer goods corporation P&G, Britain’s largest nuclear power station operator Sellafield Ltd and biotech giant FUJIFILM Diosynth.

The Conference, now in its 9th year, also offers unique one-to-one mentoring sessions. Industry leaders from across the region will be on hand to assist attending companies, particularly SMEs, with advice on becoming suppliers to the sector, or enhancing existing relationships with clients.

As a key player in the chemicals sector, BPE will be at the centre of the action. It will have a stand within the exhibition zone, ready to speak to delegates about engineering design. There will also be plenty of copies of the company’s industry whitepapers to read and opportunities for collaboration with BPE’s partners Boulting Environmental Services and Britest, who are exhibiting on stands 18 and 16 respectfully.

Jon McGeehan, who will be attending from BPE, said: “NEPIC is a fantastic organisation bringing together the many innovative companies working within the sector in the North East. It’s important for us to be at the event to network with our industry peers and share our insight into the latest developments within chemical process engineering.”

NEPIC’s comms manager, Louise Gwynne-Jones, said of the conference: “The North-East Process sector works through NEPIC to secure the future of the whole sector. Demonstrating that we have a vibrant local supply chain that can underpin and support all the needs of chemistry-based businesses is vital to both existing industry and future investors.

“This event not only provides companies with a unique opening to exploit the opportunities that lie within such major regional process sector developments, but also offers a place for companies to come together to network and collaborate.”

Event registration is now open and NEPIC would like to welcome all North-East companies (both members and non-members) that participate in, or are looking to supply to, the chemical-processing sector to register and attend the event.
