CIEX - Accelerating innovation across the chemical value chain

CIEX is created for C-level R&D and Innovation experts from the consumer, industrial and specialty chemical sectors. By bringing together all players across the value chain, we create a unique platform for participants to learn, exchange ideas, and collaborate. CIEX is all about creating value – though bringing the right people together, through creating synergies, and through actively connecting potential partners.

Hear from and discuss with industry leaders, international experts and innovative thinkers from around the globe. Keynote presentations, panel discussions, round tables as well as one2one meetings give you every opportunity to connect with other participants.

"CIEX allows penty of time for interaction in between the presentations, the evening drinks, and networking breaks. There's just a real opportunity to get to know each other and to figure out how we can leverage each other's strengths."
Chief Technology & Sustainability Officer, DowDuPont
