Gastech, the world’s largest exhibition and conference supporting the gas, LNG, hydrogen and energy industry, will take place in Dubai, from 21-23 September 2021, the event’s organisers, dmg events, announced. The event is to be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai.
Gastech 2021 was due to be held in Singapore. However, recent COVID-19 outbreaks across South-East Asia have created uncertainty around accessibility and travel, making it necessary to find an alternative venue to host Gastech 2021.
“Gastech comes at an important time for the energy industry with a shared global mandate to lower carbon emissions and provide clean affordable energy for all,” commented H.E. Suhail Mohamed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure. “Gastech is a key enabler of conversations and connections that drive the energy transition agenda.”
dmg events said it held multiple conversations with important Gastech stakeholders, the Gastech Governing Body and participating companies before today’s announcement. Those conversations underlined the need to meet face-to-face to address both the challenges and opportunities the energy industry faces, including the clear need for the industry to respond to the climate challenge, as well as the rapid acceleration of hydrogen as a possible clean source of future energy and the adoption of CCUS technology as a decarbonisation tool.
“Gastech 2021 will provide the leadership that will enable the gas, LNG, hydrogen and energy industry to thrive in post-COVID-19 energy markets,” said Christopher Hudson, President of dmg events. “Alongside the disruptive forces accelerating the transition to cleaner energy, Gastech provides unparalleled opportunities to build the long-term sustainable business relationships required to address climate change issues and the decarbonisation of energy.”
Gastech 2021 will be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre. It will be attended by more than 25,000 attendees, including senior decision-makers and energy industry thought leaders and over 400 exhibiting companies, who will set the agenda for the global gas, LNG, hydrogen and energy industry for decades to come.
