Keeping you informed of latest market developments
The ICIS community plays a pivotal role in networking and the sharing of ideas, intelligence and best practice across the industry. This is even more important in such volatile and unprecedented times. To assist in navigating these turbulent conditions, we have launched a series of webinars that shares opinion and industry insight on how best to manage this crisis.
The ‘Ask ICIS’ series will host short informal chats with leading participants from across the industry providing you with ample opportunities for questions and debate. We believe this rapport will ensure as an industry we best manage our current challenges.
