MMSA has organized the International Methanol Conference for the International Methanol Producers and Consumers Association (IMPCA) since 2006. This event attracts a broad-based set of delegates from around the world, distributed evenly between suppliers, consumers, traders, and other services, and engaging them with distinguished presenters discussing topics that are critical to the methanol world today.

In 2013, MMSA introduced its MMSA European Methanol Conference with an emphasis on new and existing markets for methanol driven by policy demands, technological capabilities, and commercial viability. Held each year in Frankfurt, Germany, the conference features presentations from MMSA consultants along with industry leaders in methanol markets, process technology development, as well as academia.
