1st International LNG congress participants

1st International LNG congress by the numbers


Exhibition stand
Focus exhibition area has a limited number of exhibition stands; as a result each segment will be presented by one or two companies. This helps the exhibitors to stand out among the others and gives them the opportunity to find new connections for further collaboration. The exhibition stand is printed and installed by the organizers. The participants need only to create the draft, come to the Congress and get the benefit of the participation.
Delegate packages
International LNG Congress is a closed-door environment event with the limited number of participants. The delegate participation provides the companies with the opportunities to listen to the leading companies’ key specialists reports and to take part in the discussions after the presentations. During the coffee breaks the delegates exchange the contacts and share the experience with other participants.
Sponsorship opportunities
To get the maximum benefit from the Congress companies participate as the sponsors. The organizing team creates the most comfortable atmosphere for the negotiations providing sponsors with VIP-meetings and marketing promotion before, during and after the Congress. The companies invest not only in the “sponsor status” but in the future projects and collaboration with new clients.
The closing event on the second day of the Congress. Here the companies can talk to their potential clients in informal atmosphere with the live music, delicious courses and house wines. During the evening the participants usually get new contacts for the long-term cooperation.
