Your Networking Experience
Maximizing your opportunities to meet and do business with the people that are most important to you, is at the heart of what we do. Throughout the year, the Council team interacts with over 6 000 executives responsible for powering the oil & gas industry. This culminates each year at the World Energy Capital Assembly in London.
We want to ensure that you make the most of your time during your visit to WECA – let us help you with introductions, setting up meetings and providing you a private space to share ideas and do deals.
“WECA is the place I meet everyone and the best deals are done in these kind of places. When you put all these executives together in one room for 2 days, we share information, ideas and mutual interests which fuels the industry”
“I’ve been with WECA for 10 years because I feel that it manages to provide you with something that you really need when you are an oil & gas professional – a place where for 2 days you can meet a lot of people at the same time and you can talk easily in a nice environment. It is a great place to do business”
Council Connect is a service that provides attendees with a prescheduled programme of meetings. This service is provided to show speakers, investors and premium/ lead level sponsors.
As Council shows get larger, we want to ensure you use your time as effectively and efficiently as possible. Prescheduled meetings provide a time and resource efficient way for you to meet possible investors, appraise new opportunities and assess potential partners. The intimate format of meeting 1-2-1 allows for more in-depth conversation and close collaboration.
We don’t leave networking and your time to chance. Using Council Connect, we make introductions to structure and optimize your time on location. We assist our clients before, during and after our events enabling access to good deal flow and potential clients. We spend 365 days a year focused on connecting the energy industry to one another.

Networking Success Stories
“WECA allows us to come to one spot where there is a diverse audience of people who are here – from finance and the oil and gas space, many of which we may not have known before or heard. We are able to set up the meetings and move around and make those introductions, and in just two days we are able to do so many”
“When you are a small or medium sized oil and gas company you are always looking at how you are going to structure your capital for the next deal and this the ideal place to be to gain those contacts or mature and progress relationships.”
“WECA is a great event, the whole industry is here – banks, investors, oil & gas companies, service providers, it is a great opportunity to meet everyone in the same room and exchange ideas.”
Meeting Pods are the only exclusive meeting spaces available at the World Energy Capital Assembly. By hosting a pod you will have a branded private space in the main networking area for your client meetings and a base for your team. You will have full access to your pod for the duration of the assembly and the option to create a formal meetings schedule which will be managed by yourself and your Oil & Gas Council Corporate Development Manager.
