About the Congress

Inspiring innovation
in a global economy

The Congress

The European Association of Chemical Distributors (Fecc) welcomes you to the Fecc Annual Congress 2016. The congress will take place in Istanbul, Turkey on June 6-8.

The Fecc Annual Congress is the leading event for the European chemical distribution industry and a key date in the European chemical industry's calendar. Hundreds of delegates, from business leaders to stakeholders, attend every year.

Join us

Join us and experience first-hand why the Fecc Congress is the choice of top leaders from the chemical distribution industry for networking. A wonderful opportunity to generate new business and reinforce existing relationships, while also learning new methods to improve your company's performance.


Fecc chose: "Inspiring innovation in a global economy" as this years theme. Fecc is keen to provide the delegates with tools to move forward despite the demanding times ahead.

With a refreshed programme the Fecc congress includes new and different elements in the schedule. This year's programme includes an inspiring presentation titled "Wings for the future" from Claude Michel who will tell us about the incredible " Solar Impulse" project. 

Istanbul will continue as the location of the Fecc Congress 2016, this was decided at a recently held Fecc Board meeting. This decision was made as it was felt that there is no immediate or apparent terrorist threat in Istanbul.

However, the safety of our participants is paramount and we are in constant contact with the Swissotel – The Bosphorus Istanbul who have reassured us that they will do everything within their capacity to secure the safety of their guests and the event in general.

In the case that the Congress does not take place due to a terrorist attack, Fecc will refund registration fees to delegates and partners. NB: This insurance does not cover cancelled travel, accommodation and personal losses. All participants are advised to take out individual travel insurance.

We remain convinced that the Fecc Congress in Istanbul will be a wonderful opportunity to generate new business, reinforce existing relationships, while also learning new methods to improve company performance.
