The Woodlands Waterway Marriott
The Woodlands, Texas USA

TINC is a one-of-a-kind gathering, unique among the refining and petrochemical industries for its insistence on limiting attendance to owner operators. Free from the distraction of vendors, TINC offers a rare opportunity for attendees to engage with their peers.
