Striving to be #1 in applied innovation at the plant level
In-depth stakeholder interviews began in June 2017 to determine real purchasing needs for 2018 and 2019. These stakeholder interviews were conducted with executives, key managers and multidisciplinary teams at Eastman Chemical Company and will be extended to include Nuclear Fuel Services, Wacker Polysilicon, hopefully BAE Systems and other companies still to be determined.
These market research efforts are cornerstone to making eChemExpo highly relevant to both exhibitors and attendees and in making eChemExpo the #1 multidisciplinary process industry gathering, for applied innovation at the plant level, in the Americas.
