Alongside our partners it will provide the perfect online platform for C-Level gas executives from across Europe and beyond to discuss the outcome of the 2020/1 winter as well as addressing the long-term role of gas in achieving a carbon neutral Europe in 2050.

EGV Virtual Guide

 

In order to prepare our attendees for our digital event our team has put together a Virtual guide.
 
We encourage all registered participants to download this document and familiarise themselves with the event platform.
The EGV team highly recommends that our delegates log into the event platform as soon as it opens up prior to the event.
Make the most out of your digital event by building up your profile and making connections before the event launch 

What to expect

We at the Energy Council already have a vast experience of running virtual events in our portfolio and we are pleased to share the European Gas Virtual Guide which explains how we have adapted the virtual gathering to your needs in these unprecedented times:

 

  • Across the three days, we have compressed each day so that it runs from 9am-3pm CET with extra breaks meaning you won’t be exhausted from staring at your screen the entire day.
  • We have focused on an array of live panel discussions to make sure you can interact with and hear the latest industry updates on all things LNG, Pipelines, Geopolitics and Hydrogen.
  • We will maintain the exclusive senior audience expected from the physical event (around 300 people) as well as the 1-2-1 meetings arranged by our dedicated team to make sure you have the best platform to exchange ideas with your peers.
  • If you can’t make a session on the day, you will have full on-demand access to the presentations and panels after the event.
