Milan 29th July 2021 – The northern Italian city of Milan will host the 50th anniversary edition of Gastech, the world’s largest exhibition and conference supporting the Energy, gas, LNG and Hydrogen industry, organisers dmg Events announced, today. Gastech 2022 will be held from 05-08 September 2022, at the Fiera Milano S.p.A. - Rho trade fair and convention centre.
The 50th edition of Gastech will take place at a critical time for the energy industry as governments and businesses navigate the complexities of the energy transition and the gas, LNG and hydrogen industry adapt to the trends, challenges and opportunities shaping global energy markets, decarbonisation agendas and climate mitigation policies.
Attilio Fontana, Governor of Lombardia Region, said: “Lombardy region looks closely to the great change of the energy and gas market. Fostering innovation and sustainability is the main goal of our regional development strategy for 2030. Gastech is a unique opportunity of discussion among leaders in energy sectors in crucial times for energy transition and new economy. Lombardy and Milan are confirmed as ideal venues for international events and exhibitions, such as Gastech, thanks to Fiera Milano, one of the biggest fair centre in all Europe - and a modern and well-connected system”.
Giuseppe Sala, Mayor of Milan said: “Decarbonisation, sustainability, environmental and energy reconversion are pivotal themes both for the City of Milan and for the development of the society and a conscious global community. By hosting Gastech 2022 at Fiera Milano, thanks to the support of our convention bureau YesMilano, our city will have the opportunity to demonstrate not only its experience in the management of high-level international events but also to contribute with competence and accuracy to the open debate on environmental problems and challenges that afflict our planet and to which all of us - from politics to industry - have the duty to find concrete solutions”.
Luca Palermo, Chief Executive Officer and General Manager, Fiera Milano S.p.A., said: Fiera Milano with this announcement is taking another important step towards the delivery of the strategic plan launched in February 2020. Global events, such as Gastech, find in the city of Milan and its fairground an international hub capable of offering a global network for organisers, exhibitors and visitors. We are pleased to host such important exhibition, organized by dmg events, that is looking very carefully to relevant topics such as the energy transition and the environmental impact. Fiera Milano S.p.A. has always considered sustainability as a pillar of its strategy. Furthermore, the agreement signed today sets the stage for a collaboration with Dmg events with the aim of developing new synergistic projects with existing exhibitions as well as attracting other events and congresses with a strong international appeal”.
Christopher Hudson, President, dmg events, said: “Gastech 2022 will take place at an important time for the gas, LNG and hydrogen industry. It will bring together energy industry leaders, policy makers and industrial energy consumers to address the hard facts about the transition to net zero carbon emissions and the enormous challenges the industry, regulators and end users will have to embrace to meet the objectives of COP 26. Milan is a world class location with a long and strong track record of successfully hosting major industry events. Its direct connectivity to the world’s business centres makes it the ideal choice for hosting the 50th anniversary edition of Gastech and the right location for our partners, exhibitors and attendees to meet and conduct business.”
