2015 International LNG Conference in BC
The future of B.C.’s natural gas on display this October
British Columbia is experiencing unprecedented growth as a result of one of the province’s most promising resources – natural gas.
Natural gas is the world’s cleanest burning fossil fuel. This has made it an attractive commodity in markets where energy demands are increasing. For this reason, the province is building an export industry capable of shipping liquefied natural gas to Asia.
Exporting liquefied natural gas overseas will be a focus of the provincial government’s international conference - Clean Energy. Reliable Partner - this fall. On October 14-16, 2015, participants from all over the world will congregate in Vancouver and take part in three days of discussion that will help guide B.C.’s energy future.
The conference provides the perfect forum to discuss the latest technology, standards, safety measures and best practices for transporting natural gas overseas.
Other highlights include:
Larger conference scope
The conference is part of the provincial government’s commitment to ensure B.C.’s natural gas supports a growing and global economy. More than 4,000 people are expected to attend this year.
Three days, Three Themes
Each day of the conference will centre around three specific areas: Investment (Day 1), Technology & Innovation and Partnerships (Day 2), and Partnerships (Day 3).
Insightful discussions to move B.C.’s LNG industry forward
A variety of panel sessions are planned relevant to the three themes, including clean technology and innovation in industries that utilize LNG, like transportation and shipping.
High-profile speakers and global participation
The conference will include participation by global LNG experts, industry proponents from around the world, educators, local governments, community leaders and First Nations. There will be keynote speeches as well as involvement by many participants during the panel discussions.
The Vancouver Convention Centre space will be available for all registrants to use, including separate rooms for meetings that can be booked on-site.
Larger exhibit and trade-show floor
Last year a tradeshow floor was added to the conference and it was a major success. This aspect of the event will be expanded, providing attendees with an opportunity to connect with stakeholders and companies, through programs like LNG-Buy BC.
A ‘GameChanger’ youth expo will also be introduced this year, providing students with an opportunity to show their science skills and knowledge about energy.
The conference - Clean Energy. Reliable Partner - will be hosted by the provincial government at the Vancouver Convention Centre from October 14-16, 2015.
Registration is now open. Details, sponsorship opportunities and additional information about the event can be found online at: http://lngconference.ca/
