This unique event travels the globe annually bringing together CEO’s of key LPG companies, government, senior representatives of major intergovernmental organisations, and media to explore the LPG industry, discuss its growth potential and to forge new business relationships.
Don’t miss your chance to meet with all types of industry stakeholders. Alongside the conference, the exhibition will provide all delegates and visitors with the opportunity to see the latest products and services available. The exhibition area will be a central point for all Forum participants to network, learn, and develop exciting new business opportunities.
In 2020, the world will meet in Dubai at the occasion of Expo 2020 Dubai. Expo 2020’s theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’ is about the power of collaboration and partnership to create a better future. The World LPG Forum under the theme ‘Bringing Energy to Life’ fits in perfectly and will take place at the same time as Expo 2020 Dubai to allow participants to be part of this exceptional vibrant platform for economic and cultural exchange.
THE MIDDLE EAST LPG MARKETS
The ME has traditionally been the powerhouse producer of LPG for the global markets and although it may have been overtaken by the US recently it remains, with 22% of the global supply, the second largest producing region, and critically important for the fast-growing Asian LPG markets.
The ME region accounts for 11% of total global demand for LPG, of which 75% is used as a chemical feedstock, giving plenty of opportunity for demand growth in other sectors such as residential, commercial, and transport.
The UAE is the fourth largest LPG consumer in the ME region and amongst the top ten LPG producers in the ME with over 10mnt/year of production, according to the 2018 Statistical Review of Global LPG.
