Exploring the supply and demand dynamics shaping the global phosphate markets

CRU is delighted to return to Morocco for Phosphates 2018 and celebrate the 11th event in the series.

We last brought the event to Morocco in 2012 and attracted a record attendance of over 500 participants. As Morocco remains a driving force in global phosphate production, this strategic location enables us to bring together one of the world’s largest audiences of phosphate mining and plant operators and engineers.

CRU’s Phosphates Conference is firmly established as the premier gathering for senior decision-makers representing the fertilizer, feed and industrial phosphates industries. Business leaders from producers, traders, engineering, technology and equipment providers, and consumers, meet at this annual event to engage in high-level networking, negotiate business contracts and share industry knowledge.

Phosphates 2018 will provide delegates with key insights and in-depth market information about phosphates raw materials, intermediates and finished products. The two-day programme will cover key commercial subjects including: current and forecast supply dynamics; phosphate fertilizer cost outlook; updates on new projects and their anticipated impact on oversupplied markets; and demand drivers from the fertilizer, feed and industrial markets.

Phosphates 2018 will also continue to grow the technical content, with a dedicated stream of technical presentations in addition to the popular technical showcases. Registered attendees will have the chance to share practical experience with other operators and meet with the industry's leading suppliers of technology and engineering solutions in the large scale exhibition.

The Phosphates Conference is the must-attend event for commercial and operational executives in the fertilizer, feed and industrial phosphates industries. We look forward to welcoming you to Morocco in 2018.
