The 8th GPCA Fertilizer Convention

Date: 26-Sep-17 to 28-Sep-17
Location: The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain / Manama / Bahrain
Category: Agriculture, Farming & Forestry Technology Conferences & Trade Fairs

Changing market dynamics in the fertilizer industry are creating new business opportunities as producers emerge from a period of sluggish growth, low product prices and increased competition abroad. Opportunities are running high for the GCC region, which due to its close proximity to key export routes, access to abundant feedstock and established position as one of the world’s top fertilizer exporters, is well placed to establish a foothold in new markets, while growing its global reach.

Set to take place under the theme 'New beginnings: Return to growth' the 8th GPCA Fertilizer Convention will offer exclusive insight into the likely impact of new market changes on fertilizer trade, and highlight the key drivers behind future growth. It will further delve into the topics of how to create a stable environment, reinvent global distribution channels, link business and innovation, and learn about the latest technological advancements in the region and globally.
