The 4th edition of the GAS symposium returns to the Asia Pacific country from 26th-28th October 2016 as an amalgamation of the Gastech Conference & Exhibition and Asia Pacific Small & Mid-Scale LNG (APAC LNG) Forum events.

With new streams and a free-to-attend exhibition added to the GAS programme, over 300 mid to senior level delegates are expected to attend the conference with over 50 industry experts offering insights across 18 sessions of strategic, technical and country focused content.

The new exhibition show floor will also offer more bilateral opportunities for the 60 companies that will be exhibiting from the gas, LNG and related industry sectors. Two thousand attendees are anticipated to attend this section of the event, looking to invest and do business within the region.

As such, the combined conference places a wider focus on encompassing commercial and technical aspects of the gas and LNG value chain
