The World LPG Association (WLPGA) announced e-LPG Week, the single most important LPG focused event that brings the entire value chain of the LPG industry together. The event will be held virtually from 2nd – 6th November 2020.
Themed ‘Bringing Energy to Life’, e-LPG Week aims to rally the LPG industry through interactive sessions and events, online networking, and a unique virtual showcase of LPG companies.
Hosted by ENOC Group, e-LPG Week will touch upon many industry opportunities and challenges; including advocacy in a post COVID-19 world, emerging global Autogas markets, opportunities for LPG to displace higher carbon alternatives in major demand sectors, digital innovation and diversity, and innovation and developments in using LPG to achieve the social and economic development targets laid out in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically the targets in areas of poverty, hunger, health, climate change, gender equality and energy access.
According to James Rockall, WLPGA CEO & Managing Director, “LPG Week, incorporating the annual World LPG Forum, is the premier gathering of the world’s LPG sector. That we are holding the event online this year as e-LPG Week brings unique and unprecedented opportunity for the global LPG sector to debate, discuss and do business more deeply and more widely than ever before”
