What is World Energy Capital Assembly?
The show started as a simple idea in 2008: Let’s connect energy investors and finance professionals with the whole industry. It seemed to resonate. World Energy Capital Assembly has grown to be the anchor event on the industry calendar.
World Energy Capital Assembly provides unrivalled access to what is now the world’s largest global network of senior executives from across the energy, finance and investment worlds. With over 1000 members joining us in 2018 from more than 40 countries, we explore the financial trends and digital technologies transforming our industry.
Under the theme “Transformation”, World Energy Capital Assembly will be held 3 – 4 December at the Hilton Park Lane in London. Expect to hear insights into emerging and re-emerging energy investment opportunities, review deals done in 2018 and chart E&P activity across the year. Hear inspirational discussions around new energies/renewables, digitalisation and energy convergence. A new format and venue will enable increased customisation of content and more time for you to network with those that matter to you at one of our networking breaks, pre-arranged one-to-one meetings, private dinners and drinks receptions.
Closing two packed days, the largest energy Awards Dinner in Europe offers the ideal setting for networking with contacts old and new, whilst celebrating the industry’s achievements in the most glamorous of settings
