Oil & Gas industry on show at AOG 2015 in Perth from today
The international oil & gas industry will be out to show its strength in Perth today when the first major international petroleum industry event of the year gets under way.
Oil and gas specialists from around the globe will come together to discuss the latest trends and hear from world leaders, view the latest and technology developments, and kick up their heels at a range of networking events when AOG 2015 is staged at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre (PCEC) for the next three days.
Thousands of attendees are set to view a record 620 companies from 25 nations, take their pick of 13 different conference streams, or catch up with their peers in one of the five specialist industry zones. There will also be plenty of opportunities to meet with old friends or make new ones at the various food and beverage centres open at various points around the venue.
“AOG has a long history of being one of the leading oil and gas gatherings of the year and we are looking forward to another highly successful event,” AOG Event Director at Diversified Communications, Bill Hare, said.
“With the global oil and gas industry at a crossroads due to unstable oil prices and major cut backs in capital expenditure, AOG 2015 is viewed as an early barometer of the amount of confidence that remains in the sector and what areas will still receive strong investment backing going forward.
“AOG 2015 is the place to be if you want to learn exactly what is going on from the leaders in their field at the conference, special industry lunches and the networking zones. And the many exciting opportunities and developments that are available in the industry will be very visible on the Exhibition floor at AOG this year, which will take all available space at the PCEC,” Mr Hare said.
In its 34th year, AOG is considered one of the key international oil and gas industry gatherings. It is also provides major benefits to the Western Australian economy, with large delegations flying into Perth from all of the world’s leading oil and gas nations.
“We are extremely proud of the international support we receive every year for AOG, with governments from around the world considering the event important enough to make sure it is always on their annual calendar to attend.
