CWC Solutions is delighted to announce that it has been appointed as the Professional Conference Organiser for two of the energy industry’s largest and most prestigious upcoming events, the 27th World Gas Conference (WGC 2018), Washington D.C., 2018 and the 19th International Conference & Exhibition on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG19), China, 2019.
Held every three years and alternating between member countries (WGC) or producing and consuming countries (LNG), these events are the ‘Olympics’ of the energy industry hosting thousands of senior industry figures, ministers and professionals from more than 100 countries.
The CWC Group has over 17 years’ experience in delivering energy conferences, exhibitions and training, and during this time has produced more than 600 events in 35 countries across 5 continents.
CWC Solutions, a division of the Group, will build on its position as the leading Professional Conference Organiser in the energy industry after a successful track record of delivering outstanding results for renowned international clients. Over the years CWC has been a reliable partner, working with the industry’s authority, the International Gas Union (IGU) on both gas and LNG events including the World Gas Conference 2009, 2012 and 2015, as well as LNG 17; providing a range of event management services.
CWC’s expertise in taking care of logistics, global marketing and communications, speaker and programme management, ensures record attendance levels, global impact and a quality event for all involved.
Jay Copan, Executive Director of the LNG 17 event which took place in Houston, 2013 as well as of the upcoming 27th World Gas Conference (Washington D.C. 2018), says: “CWC’s expertise in the development of conferences for the energy industry is unique among conference organisers. As a result, the company has global reach and access to leading contacts, speakers and the latest industry knowledge that is necessary to successfully conduct an event of this size and in this sector.”
The National Organising Committee for LNG 19, China LNG Association, made the decision to work with CWC due to its forward-looking ideas, its excellent experience in organising large scale global events of the energy industry, as well as its close industry relationships. China’s importance as a growing natural gas market and LNG importer, and the tremendous growth that has occurred throughout Asia, makes it the ideal destination to host such an important event which will gather the global industry’s leaders.
Lisa Shelton, Director of CWC Solutions said: “We are delighted to have been appointed as the Professional Conference Organiser for WGC 2018 and LNG 19. Our team is looking forward to continuing to enhance and grow these important industry leading events, while helping to develop the IGU’s vision of serving as the voice for the natural gas industry worldwide.”
CWC’s key to success is its ability to partner with the client to deliver their vision. Whether it is a large scale event requiring several years of planning or a smaller bespoke event attracting leading decision makers, CWC makes it a priority to create partnerships which are mutually beneficial, sharing industry knowledge and event management expertise which leads to a high-quality participant experience.
