The China Energy Assembly is recognised as the most international energy meeting in China, with the participation of Chinese SOEs and International energy companies, energy service companies, industry advisors, financiers and investors. The event is a business development, strategy and investment focused meeting designed for attendees to discuss the role that China’s domestic and outbound E&P development will play in the global energy industry.
Organised in association with the Energy Council, the 2017 Assembly will gather 500 executives from the upstream, midstream/LNG, downstream, trading, finance, investment and petroleum services sectors to Beijing for thought leadership, business development, and networking.
The event is held under Chatham House Rule and with simultaneous dual translation (Mandarin and English) for the benefit of local and international attendees.
