LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER: Petcore Europe Conference on 23 February 2016 in Brussels

ALL ABOUT PET - New date. Same place. Same audience. Same topics: Sustainability, European Circular Economy, Innovation and Globalisation.

Wednesday, December 2, 2015 — Brussels

Petcore Europe invites you to its annual conference on 23 February 2016 in Brussels.

Due to the exceptional situation in Brussels in November 2015, we had to postpone our conference scheduled to take place on the 24th. But to postpone is not to abandon!

We are looking forward to welcoming you on that new date - same place, same topics, same speakers and with more than 130 experts and leaders from the complete PET value chain in Europe and beyond as well as representatives from the European institutions.
