Frequently Asked Questions

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

The PCA International Conference is a gathering of owners, senior executives, and marketing managers, purchasing managers and technical managers from companies around the world engaged in or supporting Pine Chemicals businesses. PCA members and non-members alike are welcome.
The program consists of two mornings of presentations on a variety of subjects including global markets in pine chemicals, supply logistics and issues, technology, safety, sustainability and other subjects of interest in the pine chemicals industry. Additionally, the program includes several receptions and ample time each day for meeting and networking with industry colleagues.
The Conference is a highly efficient meeting allowing participants to readily interface with the "who's who" of the global pine chemicals industry at a fraction of the cost and time that it would ordinarily be involved with traveling to meet these key managers and executives.
