Save the date – BSEF Asia Forum 2020, 4th November

For the 4th consecutive year, BSEF, The International Bromine Council, is organizing its Asia Forum. After the successful editions in China and Japan, and Korea, considering on-going developments with COVID-19, BSEF has decided to transform the 2020 edition of the BSEF Asia Forum into to a fully online experience that will take place on Wednesday November 4, 2020 from 15h till 17h45 KST. We believe this is the safest approach for the well-being of our global audience and we are excited that a virtual event makes it possible to broaden the learning opportunities and engagement with the industry at this time.

This year´s edition of the BSEF Asia Forum entitled “Megatrends, Materials and Flame Retardants” focuses again on South Korea, amongst the world’s leaders in key future-ready technology, and aims to bring together multiple Asian stakeholders and experts from academic, industry and government organizations to share knowledge and strengthen cooperation with South Korean partners.
