LogiChem 2012 Conference
Hilton, Antwerp, Belgium
Managing Uncertainty in the Face of Economic Volatility
The 11th edition of LogiChem brings you a programme covering the most pressing issues affecting senior supply chain professionals within the chemical industry in a format that fosters high levels of interactive networking, learning and benchmarking.
The market is now very concerned about the volatility of the economic environment, particularly since lower production levels (particularly in August) and amid fears about a double dip recession that will ultimately impact even the fairly robust chemical industry.
Equipping yourself with the knowledge and the strategies to face the current challenges and build a resilient supply chain is critical to the survival, growth and bottom line of your business.
