"The World Bio Markets Conference in Amsterdam was a great opportunity to learn about companies and organizations across the whole renewables value chain, from farmers and resource managers, feedstock converters and bio-engineers, chemical manufacturers, polymer resin producers, large and small consumer product makers, to logistics and technology support firms and governmental bodies and NGOs. The schedule was very full but there were opportunities to engage with speakers during the panel discussions and networking breaks. The organizers provided a ready mechanism and rooms for scheduling individual meetings that were quite productive since the right people (i.e. thought-leaders and decision-makers) were in attendance. The speakers and panelists were well prepared and the session chairs/panel moderators were effective at raising challenging issues. Overall, one of best conferences I’ve attended."
Steve Cohen, Director, Catlyst and Chemicals Technology, Elevance
