Argus Asia-Pacific and Middle East Bitumen 2017

We are delighted to announce that the Argus Asia-Pacific and Middle East Bitumen 2017 conference will take place on 10-12 October 2017 in Singapore.

Returning for its 13th edition, the Argus Asia-Pacific and Middle East Bitumen conference is the premier event for exploring developments in the bitumen industry, creating a unique platform to understand the supply and demand landscape, market trends and applications of modified bitumen and the hot spots for trade in 2017-18.

The event last year brought together an unprecedented 250 industry thought leaders to discuss and shape the future of the bitumen industry. Delegates were able to leverage on the expanded coverage through a dual-stream session day, delivering up to date information on bitumen trade and technology innovation. 

Main themes for 2017:

  • Hot spots for bitumen trade: A look at arbitrage opportunities — where are we headed?
  • Refiners’ outlook: hear refining leaders as they discuss their future plans and response to market challenges
  • New technical workshop: Understanding the bitumen specifications for better road paving
