This is one of the best LNG events that we’ve been to. Especially the presentations in the sessions are very interesting. It is great that the sessions are divided into small-scale and large-scale which allows the participants to choose which direction they want to follow. The booths are extremely well-organized – we come here and we don’t have to carry anything with us as BGS does all the set up. You know, you just sit down and your booth is ready for you. And the organization of individual meetings is done perfectly. There is no complain.

Sebastien Demange, Director Latin America, France, Iberia - Cryogenic Division at VRV S.p.A

I am very happy to be here, because doing this kind of conferences and congresses in the past months I’ve seen less and less audience but this congress in really growing, it’s very professional from organization side and I think it gathers together all the specialists and experts in LNG world.

Philippe Heisch, Global Sales Manager LNG Distribution Systems at Cryostar SAS

I am very glad to be here. The event is being great with a lot of participants, a lot of voices. People present great material, and there is a good ground to meet again and to work together.

Giuseppe Bernardelli, LNG & Power Business Development Director Flow Europe at Emerson

I’ve been in other events related to LNG and in this case, the productivity of the team, well, helping the attendees to have all the service, to reach all the companies. The most important thing is to be able to reach the most of the contacts we want to reach, to hear and to attend a lot of explanations that are very interesting in order to keep all know-how in your company, in your personal knowledge in order to grow up in LNG business.

Marc Andreu Llauet, General Manager at Furuise Europe Company Sl.

I must say that the conference is well-organized. I mean the number of attendees and represented companies is very good. The questions received on our small table are very interesting and most likely will provide opportunities for the future.

Herman Hofstede, Business Development Manager at Krohne Oil and Gas B.V.

The organization is fantastic. The arrangements are fabulous. I think that the fact that we have a number of rooms to be able to meet people as well as the caliber of the candidates and the people who have come here is exactly what we want. For me the highlight of the conference has been the visitation of the terminal of Enagas as it was fantastically done. The topics seemed to me quite relevant and very interesting.
