The WGC is the most important gas industry event organized by the International Gas Union. A large part of the WGCPARIS2015 programme will be the culmination of three years of studies and research conducted by over 1,000 industry professionals who make up the 14 IGU Working Committees, Programme Committees and Task Forces. The breadth of the World Gas Conference’s programme really makes it stand out from other leading industry events, with conference topics spanning across the whole gas value chain ranging from exploration to the burner tip, sustainability to geopolitics.
Some key statistics of the event:
• 4,000 delegates from over 100 countries
• 45,000 sq m of exhibition space
• 500 speakers
• 350 exhibitors

1) Natural Gas for Sustainable Development
2) Gas and renewables – the perfect combination
3) Natural Gas available everywhere
4) Human Resources for the Future
In addition, there will be a concurrent Youth Event, dedicated to students and young professionals between 20 and 35 years.
