Gastech 2018 has celebrated record visitor numbers, closing with the organisers reporting over 30,000 attendees over four days.
The 30th edition of the event was this year co-located with GPEX (Global Power & Energy Exhibition) in Barcelona and lays a strong foundation for the 2019 event which will be held in Houston.
The four-day exhibition and conference brought together 500 global exhibiting companies and a record number of visitors from across the upstream, midstream and downstream gas, LNG and energy industries worldwide.
The industry-leading event saw more than 1,200 CEOs, Chairpersons, Managing Directors, Presidents, Government Officials and Ministers among 2,500 global conference delegates consider the key challenges facing the industry today, and discuss the most important topics that will shape the future of the world’s gas, LNG and energy industries for decades to come.
During the event, 300 speakers examined the global drive towards the greater adoption of gas and LNG as the fuel of choice and how the industry continues to see signposts pointing towards further long-term growth.
Gastech 2018 explored the new demand centres for gas, the challenges for the gas sector in Spain and beyond and a range of other issues including the burgeoning trading sector, project financing, the interplay between gas and renewable energy in power generation, project development, managing emissions and project financial risk management.
Another key theme was the growth of the North American gas and LNG industry, a topic that will be a focus for Gastech 2019, which will be co-located again with GPEX at the NRG Centre, Houston, September 17-19.
