Texas: Specialty & Custom Chemicals America, Feb. 2019
This week we announced a strategic alliance with the Society of Chemical Manufacturers & Affiliates (SOCMA) to partner together on the previously-announced Specialty & Custom Chemicals America event next February in Fort Worth, Texas. The roots of this partnership actually run much deeper than the new Texas show. SOCMA member companies were among the first to support our September trade show back when it started in 2012, and member representatives have continued to be key ‘sounding board’ advisors as that show has grown.
Our goal is to combine each organization's expertise in order to provide SOCMA member companies, as well as the broader specialty, fine and industrial chemical industry, a focused meeting forum at the start of the calendar year. We believe working together on the new Specialty & Custom Chemicals event next February will deliver even greater business networking benefits for SOCMA members and their customers, plus complement well the value our current Specialty & Agro Chemicals trade show has offered, and will continue to offer, to those markets each September.
As a first tangible step in our partnership, SOCMA will host a 'Cowboys & Chemicals' Texas-Style Networking Event on Monday evening, February 11th, for all trade show attendees. Join us for an authentic western experience at River Ranch, located in the Fort Worth Stockyards historic district. The evening will be a casual affair, featuring cuisine from various food stations, open bar, whiskey tastings and other Texas-style additions. The dinner rate will also include a keynote breakfast on Tuesday morning, February 12th, prior to the trade show's start at 11:00 AM.
