dmg events and the Gastech Governing body, in consultation with Enterprise Singapore and the Singapore Tourism Board, have collectively taken the decision to postpone Gastech.
Singapore will host next edition of the Gastech exhibition, which will now take place September 13-16, 2021. Gastech is the world’s largest integrated exhibition and conference supporting the gas, LNG and energy value chain.
The Gastech 2020 conferences will now take place virtually in September, with strategic and technical content streamed online, enabling the gas, LNG and energy industries the opportunity to engage, as it adapts and responds to the collective challenges and opportunities the industry faces.
Organisers dmg events said the collective decision had been “based on concerns around the global pandemic, accessibility and for the wellbeing of speakers, delegates, exhibitors and visitors.”
Gastech 2020 had been due to take place in Singapore this September.
Nick Ornstien, Vice President Energy for dmg events, said: “The postponement of Gastech 2020 gives the gas, LNG and wider energy industries greater scope to assess the impact of COVID-19 on energy demand and identify market growth opportunities, as the world moves towards a carbon neutral energy landscape.”
He added: “Gastech has a proven power to convene energy policy makers and industry leaders, which will be crucial as economies recover and demand for gas increases, post COVID-19. Gastech 2021 will help shape a roadmap for collective and individual actions and provide opportunities to identify future solutions and strategies.”
In addition to September’s virtual conference “and to ensure Gastech continues to play a crucial role at the heart of the global gas industry”, Gastech will produce a series of webinars, industry newsletters and unique networking opportunities to deliver insightful and relevant content to connect the industry with the challenges and opportunities shaping the carbon neutral agenda, in the run up to Gastech 2021.
Ornstien concluded: “We are confident, with the support of our partners in Singapore, our sponsors, and the industry, we will overcome this latest challenge, enabling the gas, LNG and energy industries to set the lower carbon energy agenda for the next decade and continue to play key roles in people’s lives and global economic prosperity.”
