gasworld’s second visit to South America saw around 150 delegates gather from across the globe. The event proved a prominent platform for the region in which participants discussed the key success factores for sustaining growth.

Return to South America…
In January 2009, around 130 delegates attended the first ever South American industrial gases conference in Santiago, Chile.

Two years on, and gasworld returned to South America for its seventh global conference, this time to Brazil, one of the fastest growing markets and by far the largest on this continent.

The conference proved to be of interest to the whole of the gases community and beyond, with up to 150 delegates converging on the Windsor Barra Hotel in Rio de Janeiro to attend the event.

The event again provided a forum for prominent speakers from all sectors of our community to present papers and discuss/debate/converse.

The main themes included:

  • The Rapid Growth of the Mining and Metals Processing Sector
  • On-Shore and Off-Shore Developments in the Oil & Gas Sector
  • Supply Chain Efficiency and Technology Trends
  • Gas Applications - Drivers for Growth
  • Safety - International Harmonisation of Standards

The conference has now come to an end, and is revered for the valuable opportunities it provided.

Pavel Perlov, Global Director of Business and Development at Electronic Fluorocarbons LLC, said, “I’ve been to around five gasworld conferences and all have been extremely successful forums. At this event, like any other gasworld conference, it offers the chance to gain new contacts with regards to sales but also it offers the very valuable tool of discussion – discussing both new business opportunities and new technologies.”

A full review, and presentations from the event will soon be available for download too – so stay tuned!
