gasworld is delighted to announce the dates for its eagerly anticipated European industrial gas conference.

gasworld last visited the region in 2010, when Kiev, Ukraine was the venue for discussion and debate concerning the trends, challenges and potential of the Eastern Europe industrial gas business.

Leading on from this event, gasworld's 2015 conference will explore the developments and opportunities within the wider European market since then. We will be shining the spotlight on the continent by inviting a host of prestigious speakers to take to the stage to discuss both the Eastern and Western Europe industrial gas businesses.

Booking will be open for delegate places in early January. There are also a host of sponsorship opportunities available. For more information, please contact a member of our dedicated team.
