Gastech is proud to create a conference programme that is developed and run by the industry, for the industry.

The Governing Body is a 60-member committee established and appointed by dmg events to ensure the conference supports research of the highest standards. Individuals who serve on the committee must complete an application for selection to ensure the appropriate balance of knowledge, skills, experience, diversity, and independence of the Governing Body is maintained.

The Gastech 2023 Governing Body is made up of a senior, select group of professionals spanning the full gas, LNG, hydrogen, and energy supply chain. The heritage of some members goes back 40 years. Speakers featuring in the technical and commercial conferences are selected by the Gastech Governing Body on the basis of abstracts submitted in response to the present call for papers.

The committee assesses all eligible applications against a specific criterion and advises on the best papers for inclusion. In 2022, the committee reviewed over 1,000 abstract submissions from 35 countries.
