Gastech 2021 to take place in Singapore in September
Published by Lydia Woellwarth,
dmg events has confirmed that Gastech 2021 will take place as an in-person event in Singapore this September, safely and securely reconnecting the global gas, LNG, hydrogen, and energy industry in a post-Covid era and providing it with a valuable platform to engage and drive the conversation around collective challenges and opportunities.
Taking place at the Singapore EXPO from 13 - 16 September 2021, only three weeks after the prestigious World Economic Forum is also held in Singapore, Gastech will be attended by more than 25 000 attendees, including ministers, global business leaders, policy makers, disruptors and innovators.
The exhibition and conference will be run in line with dmg events’ All Secure Standard, which focuses on four key cornerstones – physical distancing, cleaning and hygiene, protect and detect, and communication – to ensure attendees can be confident their health and safety is being prioritised.
Duncan Reid, Senior Vice President, Energy Portfolio, dmg events, said: “After such a challenging year globally, it gives us huge pleasure to confirm that Gastech will be run in-person in Singapore this September as planned. As we emerge from the pandemic, the need for the energy business to reconnect has never been greater. As the first global energy event to take place in-person in 2021, Gastech is a critically important platform for the entire industry to convene face-to-face once again.
“Increasing energy demand, with gas and LNG continuing to underpin the needs of millions for sustainable, low carbon affordable energy, is driving regional growth across Asia, and Singapore, home to Gastech 2021, is a strategic hub for this expanding market.”
Among the exhibitors already confirmed for Gastech 21 are Shell, Venture Global LNG, Chevron, Baker Hughes, Uniper SE, Sempra LNG, Total, Bechtel, Cheniere, Vitol, and Conoco Phillips.
