South America Assembly

 

 

 NOVEMBER 12 -14, 2018

Buenos Aires, Argentina
Rio, Brazil

Connecting buy-side investors with the energy industry in the largest such gathering in South America

 

What is South America Assembly?

The South America Assembly & Power Day is considered by executives to be the industry-leading strategic platform for pan-regional energy investment. With 14 countries represented, it offers valuable face time for domestic and international stakeholders to meet in a collaborative environment.

The South America Assembly is where deals happen, with over 400 senior executives expected across the main assembly and Power Day.  Building on the dialogue of the 2017 summit, it will explore what investments and policy decisions need to be made to meet growing demand.

We’re back once again in Buenos Aires this November.  With over three concentrated business days, focused on regional oil and gas and power. This year’s theme and content is currently being developed and will offer the latest insight into regional activity, investment trends, policy advancements and technological innovation.

2017 at a Glance

Success Stories

“Thanks for arranging a terrific event. As with all Oil Council events, my team and I found the South America Assembly to be a great way both to hear from industry leaders on latest market trends and developments, as well as to do some very effective networking with players from around the region.
I always find this to be one of the most effective venues for us to see clients and partners.”

Lance Crist

Global Head- Oil & Gas, IFC

“Thank you to the Energy Council Team for your incredible work and world-class organization at this event. I truly appreciate your coordination and support for arranging my personal meetings and assisting me when required. I was surprised that the day after the conference was finished I had available for download the event showguide, presentation slides, key event documents and photos. Impeccable work.
Thank you again. I will definitely recommend that my colleagues participate at your next event. Looking forward to seeing you again.”

Dr Jorge Vallmitjana

President, Vallmitjana & Company Consulting Services

“It was really an interesting event for us. The networking with industry colleagues on latest projects in the region was invaluable. It was great to hear of new products that are coming for the O&G industry. It is also very valuable that people from the government informed us on new steps to follow for this industry so we, as a supplier for the industry, can forecast activity for next months.”

Success Stories

“The event was very well organized and addressed hot topics for the country and industry. Look forward seeing you in the next one.”

Fernando Rearte

Global Account Manager, Halliburton

”The conference was valuable from a content and networking standpoint. I firmly believe that if the Argentine economy can turn the corner over the next 2 years, some of the greatest gains in worldwide investing will be in Argentina’s oil and gas sector. ”

David Tawil

President, Maglan Capital

“Once again, many thanks for inviting me to the event. It was very useful, and I had a great time. I don’t have many benchmarks on similar events, but I can assure you that anyone can tell that it was top notch- great speakers, ample Power & Energy and Financial Sponsors network, excellent location and very nice food. Hope to see you next year!'”
