Following its first roadshow in Madrid last year, Gastech 2018 is preparing to hit the road once again, this time gathering regional and international business leaders, government representatives and renowned influencers at the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain, on Tuesday, April 24, to discuss the continued evolution of the growing gas and LNG market.
The one-day free to attend event, to be held at the same venue as the upcoming Gastech Exhibition and Conference, will allow global delegates to hear insights from major Spanish energy company Repsol, leading energy industry consultancy Wood Mackenzie, as well as key stakeholders and supporters KBR, Baker Botts LLP, Gaztransport & Technigaz -GTT Pte Ltd and Macquarie Bank.
This second roadshow event will also be held in conjunction with the Gastech Governing Body’s conference programme voting meeting, at which it is expected that the full conference programme for Gastech 2018 will be confirmed and released.
The roadshow will attract 150 attendees ahead of the Gastech Exhibition and Conference, which will be held in September 2018. The industry leading conference, which this year will share the same location with GPEX (Global Power & Energy Exhibition), the new hub for the international power and energy community, will see more than 1,200 ministers, government officials, presidents, CEOs, chairmen and managing directors among 3,500 global conference delegates.
Gastech governing body and programme director Gavin Sutcliffe explained: “The Gastech roadshow in Madrid was a fantastic introduction to the key issues, topics and trends that we will be discussing at Gastech in September, and our Barcelona roadshow on April 24 will build on that success.”
“We’re especially excited that this second roadshow will be in the same venue where Gastech 2018 will be held in September. It will enable delegates, exhibitors and speakers to become familiar with the site and give them a real buzz for what is to come. The roadshow will also allow them to network in a focussed and productive environment while benefitting from expert insight into growth opportunities”.
“Not only that, but we are delighted to be announcing the full Gastech conference programme and share the presentations that will be featured at the conference next September.”
Presenters at Gastech 2018 will discuss topics at the forefront of the evolving gas industry, including new market opportunities for traditional and non-traditional gas market players, the largest consumers of gas and LNG by 2040, and the impact of energy landscape fragments and new ‘disruptors’ (in the form of renewables and innovative technologies) on the future of gas and LNG.
The Gastech 2018 conference will include four days of panel discussions and presentations from the industry’s key global leaders, which will address the key challenges facing the industry and discuss the most important topics that will shape the future of the world’s gas, LNG and energy industries for decades to come.
