Gastech shifts to Dubai from 21-23 September 2021

Event News

Gastech, one of the leading global exhibitions and conferences supporting the gas, LNG, hydrogen and energy industry, has been relocated from Singapore due to COVID-19 uncertainties and travel restrictions and will take place in Dubai, from 21-23 September 2021

Organised by dmg events, the event is to be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Gastech 2021 was due to be held in Singapore. They country has an excellent record in managing COVID-19 and a strong reputation as a safe, innovative and trusted destination for business and leisure events.  However, recent COVID-19 outbreaks across South-East Asia have created uncertainty around accessibility and travel, making it necessary to find an alternative venue to host Gastech 2021.

Gastech 2021 is supported by the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure of the UAE.  HE  Suhail Mohamed Al Mazrouei, minister of energy and infrastructure, commented, “Gastech comes at an important time for the energy industry with a shared global mandate to lower carbon emissions and provide clean affordable energy for all.  Gastech is a key enabler of conversations and connections that drive the energy transition agenda.”

Explaining the decision to move Gastech 2021, Christopher Hudson, president, dmg events, said, “Singapore and its stakeholders have provided us with great support and commitment. However, the uncertainty created by the rising rate of infection across the region have made it challenging for our industry to plan its participation in Singapore, and we had to look for an alternative location. When the time is right, we look forward to returning to Singapore.”

“Thanks to its robust, world-leading vaccination programme and well organised testing and travel measures, Dubai is one of the safest and most accessible places in the world to travel to.  It is a world-class location with a long and strong track record of successfully hosting major events, making it an ideal location for the global energy industry, partners, exhibitors and attendees to conduct business.”

According to Hudson, “Gastech 2021 will provide the leadership that will enable the gas, LNG, hydrogen and energy industry to thrive in post-COVID-19 energy markets.  Alongside the disruptive forces accelerating the transition to cleaner energy, Gastech provides unparalleled opportunities to build the long-term sustainable business relationships required to address climate change issues, and the decarbonisation of energy.”
