Gastech postponed to September 13 to 16 2021; to be held Singapore
dmg events along with the Gastech Governing body, and in consultation with our partners, Enterprise Singapore, the Singapore Tourism Board and key stakeholders, have taken the decision to postpone Gastech 2020 to September 13 to 16, 2021.
We have made this collective decision based on the current global pandemic and concerns over accessibility and of course the wellbeing of our speakers, delegates, exhibitors and visitors.
The postponement of Gastech gives the gas, LNG and wider energy industries the opportunity 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, the pressure is increasing to solve the technical and engineering challenges of emissions reduction and decarbonisation. Gastech 2021 will help shape a roadmap for collective and individual responses to these challenges through its strategic and technical conferences and exhibition floor.
The Gastech 2020 conferences will now take place virtually, in September, with strategic and technical conference content streamed online, enabling the gas, LNG and energy industries the opportunity to engage with a series of interactive conference sessions, as it adapts and responds to the collective challenges and opportunities the industry faces. 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.
Gastech’s power to convene energy policy makers and industry leaders will be crucial as economies recover and demand for gas increases. Over the long-term, global LNG demand is expected to double to 700 million tonnes by 2040, according to forecasts, with gas playing a significant role in shaping a lower-carbon energy system, particularly in Asia, where South and South-east Asia are forecast to generate more than half of the increased demand. China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam are all seeing increased investment in gas infrastructure for commercial and domestic use.
Gastech 2021 will be critical to connecting the global gas, LNG and energy industry with the issues and opportunities shaping the future global energy agenda and will allow the industry to continue to play a key role in economic prosperity, for decades to come, in Asia and elsewhere. The Gastech team will be in contact with you with regular updates and we look forward to working with you on creating and delivering, in 2021, another successful edition of the world’s largest integrated conference and exhibition supporting the gas, LNG and energy value chain.
