This year’s FEICA European Adhesive & Sealant Conference and EXPO, which took place September 9-11 in Vilamoura, Portugal, reportedly attracted more than 500 delegates.

Phil Derby, FEICA president, ended his two-year term by saying that he is confident that FEICA will continue to grow. “FEICA’s yearly event is the place to gain essential insights into the industry,” said Bernard Ghyoot, secretary general.

“FEICA not only provides exceptional networking platforms through its various events,” said Steve Kenny, incoming FEICA president, “but as an association it also strives to deliver the highest possible value for the industry it represents by actively contributing to the development and delivery of balanced European legislation and enabling our members to comply in a very cost competitive manner. FEICA also influences industry trends, helps to create a level playing field throughout the member states, defends the industry’s interests at a regional and global level, and generally assures its impeccable reputation in the public domain as well as with the European Commission and related bodies is sustained and enhanced.”
