Exploring the supply, demand and technical dynamics shaping the global phosphate industry

We are delighted to announce that the 14th CRU Phosphates Conference will be returning as a live, in-person gathering in Tampa, Florida on 7-9 March 2022, as well as live streamed to the virtual platform. Running as a hybrid event will enable attendees to meet in-person in Tampa, or connect online via the virtual platform. All presentations will be available to live and virtual delegates on-demand for 30 days after the conference, meaning you can still access market-leading content and take advantage of networking - even if you are unable to travel. 

As 2021 has been a year when we couldn't gather in large numbers, we expect to reach an expanded industry audience at the 2022 event. Don't miss this opportunity to reconnect with your industry peers and gain access to a global audience of 400+ delegates from across the international phosphates supply chain.

This year's extensive dual-streamed agenda will give you the latest market updates and technical innovations. The expanded technical content stream, with a dedicated agenda of technical papers and showcase presentations, is specifically tailored for operators working across mining and plant-based facilities.

The technical agenda offers an ideal opportunity for you to share experience, develop solutions to operational challenges, and learn how new technology, process, materials, and equipment developments can improve efficiency, environmental compliance and productivity.
In addition to the CRU view on the global markets and industry trends, the commercial agenda will have a particular focus on how the industry is responding to changing dynamics of phosphate demand, in terms of new phosphate products and the evolving relationship with consumers

With its unique combination of market-leading analysis, producer and project updates, and technical and operational developments, CRU Phosphates 2022 provides a truly comprehensive offering to all players in the phosphate fertilizer, feed and industrial industries. Special rate available for operators.
