Our team visited Fort Worth, TX shortly after last month's successful Charleston event – and believe Specialty & Custom Chemicals America is going to be a very valuable, second-yearly meeting place for our specialty chemical industry:

  • The exhibit floor plan is now more than 80% full with 155+ exhibiting companies registered. 
  • 2/3 of exhibitors in Texas are current Charleston show exhibitors, with 1/3 new to the Chemicals America shows. 
  • We are expecting about 1,000 total participants at this inaugural event, based on the typical ratio of exhibits to attendees at our Charleston show.
  • The show profile will feature a core of attendees working in the Specialty, Industrial and Custom Chemical markets.
  • As we’ve seen with the show in Charleston, the Fort Worth location is expected to attract many first-time participants who are based within driving distance from Texas and the surrounding Southwest US states.

The February show will feature a similar format and schedule as the September event in Charleston, with additional networking opportunities added on Monday evening, as well as a keynote breakfast Tuesday morning (see section below). 

Aside from the typical business value offered by the exhibits and conference program, our show's flat registration fee is reinvested into multiple meals and networking functions over the course of the trade show (11:00 AM Tuesday - 12:00 Noon Thursday) – including catered breakfasts, lunches, and afternoon receptions.

Specialty & Custom Chemicals America is partnering with the Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA) to offer the Cowboys & Chemicals event, a new networking component being added on Monday evening before the trade show opens. We toured the River Ranch venue in Fort Worth's Stockyards National Historic District last month, and this promises to provide exceptional value for attendees. Kick start your networking with a relaxed and casual, true Texas-style evening before the show gets under way.

The Cowboys & Chemicals event can be added as an a’ la carte option to your regular trade show registration. The Monday evening badge will also include attendance to the breakfast program featuring Texas State Senator Kelly Hancock and the industry panel on Tuesday morning (see pricing options above and program info below).

On Wednesday and Thursday, we are working with SOCMA to offer three general session presentations that will include:

  • "Challenges Posed by Trends in Chemical Industry Sustainability"
  • "Best Practices in Sourcing Custom & Toll Chemical Manufacturing"
  • "Emerging Leaders in Specialty Chemicals & A View to the Future"

Plus, on Tuesday morning, join us for a breakfast program featuring a keynote address from Texas Senator Kelly Hancock and an industry panel. The program is included in your registration for the Monday event (see section above).
