This September, gasworld celebrates its decennial year in hosting global industrial gas conferences, and returns to where it all began in 2007, the magnificent Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai (UAE).

The event titled Partnerships – A Route to Success’ will explore key trends and opportunities in corporate partnerships, from sourcing and supply partnerships, to geographical collaborations. Partnerships are becoming an increasingly important factor for the industrial gas industry; as markets become global, product ranges expand and applications develop. Sourcing the right suppliers, technology and human capital is paramount.

 Sessions will include engaging speeches on sourcing and supply partnerships, technological and safety partnerships, and geographical collaborations. Plus, delegates can expect presentations on topics such as mergers and acquisitions (M&A), and the importance of human capital.

For this milestone event, gasworld has managed to secure Chairman, President and CEO of Air Products, Seifi Ghasemi, as the Keynote Speaker. Ghasemi took over the helm of the Tier One company in 2014 and is one of the most well-known and respected figures within the industrial gas industry. He has driven the US-headquartered, global industrial gas giant to further success with his focus on strategic development, leadership and empowerment.
