CRU’s Phosphates Conference is firmly established as the premier gathering for senior decision-makers representing the fertilizer, feed and industrial phosphates industries. Business leaders from producers, traders, engineering, technology and equipment providers, and consumers, meet at this annual event to engage in high-level networking, negotiate business contracts and share industry knowledge.
Phosphates 2018 will provide delegates with key insights and in-depth market information about phosphates raw materials, intermediates and finished products. The two-day programme will cover key commercial subjects including: current and forecast supply dynamics; phosphate fertilizer cost outlook; updates on new projects and their anticipated impact on oversupplied markets; and demand drivers from the fertilizer, feed and industrial markets.
