PROMOTING DIALOGUE BETWEEN EUROPE AND ITS MAIN SUPPLIERS
 28th – 30th January 2019 | Vienna Marriott Hotel, Austria

Alongside our hosts OMV and the largest delegation of Gazprom attendees, the European Gas Conference is dedicated to building relationships and bridging Eastern and Western Europe’s gas markets.

After an outstanding 2018 event as well as an excellent advisory board held in London this Summer, we are currently preparing our best agenda to date. We will address the key issues of LNG and its global impact, security of supply, pricing and trading, connecting Western and Eastern European markets, and of course, the most pressing issue of all – the future role of gas in the energy transition.

We look forward to welcoming you in Vienna.

To keep up to date on the latest news including agenda releases, please ensure you register your interest here or, to get a flavour of the event’s successful following, check out the 2018 Post Event Report.
