2013 - a year of events

We survived the widely publicised end of the world, so there is no stopping us now! Brace up for 2013, for a lot is coming up. Read our brief guide and make sure you mark your calendar properly in order to attend all the major events this year.

First up is the NGV Prague 2013 conference – the 6th edition of one of the most important CNG/LNG sector meetings in Central Europe. Held in Czech Republic's capital, it will feature speakers and experts from Germany, Russia, Japan, Iran, Bulgaria, Poland and, of course, Czech Republic. If you are thinking of participation in the event, make sure you reserve time on February 19-20 and head over to Prague's U Hajku conference centre.

However, the above event is just a warmup before the series of shows and meetings scheduled for early March in Warsaw, Poland. Much like in 2012, the international GasShow fair and the LPG – Exceptional Energy conference will be held in the same time, but in different places. The GasShow will be accompanied by a number of side-events and publications, including the Autogas Motor Show (a display of LPG- and CNG-powered vehicles), a CNG-related conference and the Autogas in Poland 2013 Report. The LPG – Exceptional Conference, hosted by the Polish LPG Association (POGP), will focus on liquefied petroleum gas only, but in general terms, not only as automotive fuel. If you wish to attend either of the events, come to Warsaw on March 6-7.

If LPG and CNG are your game, take a trip to Kiev, Ukraine, where the World of Liquefied and Compressed Gases will take place for the 13th time. The three-day event (April 17-19, 2013) is about gas in general, including industrial gases, but gaseous motor fuels play a part important enough to make being there worthwhile.

What should be considered probably the biggest sector event this year – the 26th World LP Gas Forum & 2013 AEGPL Congress in one, also incorporating the UKLPG Annual Conference – is coming to London on October 1-3. The World LPG Forum is a „traveling” event, but since it is going to be held in Europe for 2013, the AEGPL (European LPG Association) Congress will coincide with it. And then, since the Forum will take place in London, UK, the British LPG Association (UKLPG) will meet for its annual conference as well. Great Britain's capital will definitely become the world's LPG capital this autumn!

Obviously, those events are by no means all that is happening. We are also looking forward to the 3rd edition of the Argus Autogas conference, which is being planned at the moment, with no precise time or location specified as of yet. Also, there will definitely be numerous local fairs and sector meetings in countries which are important autogas markets, such as Turkey, Germany, Italy, Croatia or Bulgaria, but little is known at the moment when it comes to details. Stay tuned – we will keep you informed!
