Salt 2018

Tower Hotel

Network with leading players in the salt supply chain and end user industries by taking part in the Roskill Salt 2018 Conference, to take place in London on April 10–11th, 2018.

Roskill, the market leaders in providing market information on materials and minerals, including salt, soda ash and potash, are ideally placed to bring you the Salt 2018 Conference to address the key issues in this market.

To take place at the five star Tower Hotel, adjacent to the iconic Tower of London on the River Thames, the conference will bring together a panel of high profile international speakers to offer market updates and commercial insight as well as news of latest developments in products and technology.

At our Salt 2017 conference in Düsseldorf last March we had more than 130 delegates who enjoyed some thought-provoking and informative presentations and excellent networking opportunities, not least in our very busy exhibition area. We are aiming to have even more delegates in London.

Among the topics to be addressed at Salt 2018 will be:

  • Salt market trends—regionally and globally
  • Cutting-edge research in salt production techniques
  • Chloralkali
  • Soda ash
  • Shipping and other transport and storage logistics
  • De-icing
  • Iodised salt

As well as gaining crucial market intelligence and enjoying excellent networking opportunities, the Salt 2018 Conference will also offer a range of excellent value sponsorship opportunities to promote your brand. Roskill events attract customers from around the world so if you want your corporate messages to reach a global audience, a sponsorship package or simple table-top exhibition booth can provide you with a great opportunity to showcase your company’s expertise, technology or corporate vision.

Anyone involved in the international salt sector would benefit from attending, particularly those in these categories:

  • Salt producers and processors
  • Equipment and machinery suppliers
  • Plant managers
  • Chemical resources managers
  • Public works professionals
