2 Dec - 3 Dec 2020, Online Conference | Die Akademie Fresenius GmbH
For many years, the Akademie Fresenius Conference has been the perfect platform for bringing together experts from all over Europe representing companies that manufacture and supply detergents and cleaning products. With the COVID-19 crisis, it has become difficult to gather physically. However, since we all need to continue to learn from one another, we have decided to transfer our dialogue to virtual space. We therefore cordially invite you to join this year’s Online Conference. Plenty of exciting presentations are awaiting you! And they will all be accessible from the comfort of your home or your office, thus reducing travel on the one hand and increasing accessibility on the other hand. We are looking forward to meeting you!
This conference is typically attended by experts from the R&D, analytics and quality assurance sectors. Find out first-hand about the most important issues within the trade.
The combination of specialist presentations from a broad range of different perspectives and the chance to discuss the topics with the experts.
