About Savannah, GA
The choice to hold our Specialty & Agro Chemicals America event in Savannah, Georgia continues to support the event’s overall mission and value proposition. Savannah is an accessible commute for the specialty chemical and agrochemical industry – within driving distance for many companies based in the Southeastern US, and with direct flights available from 29 major international cities.
Savannah offers the distinctive blend of a smaller, yet first-class business setting. Like Charleston, site of the 2015-2022 shows, Savannah is known for its deep roots of American history, southern charm and hospitality, plus a thriving, walkable downtown district with scenic water views. The city offers its own unique historical landmarks, architecture and award-winning, affordable restaurants, all “set under a veil of Spanish moss.” These features combine to make Savannah an ideal location to host our June Chemicals America event..
