Lpg Week Logo 02 With Dates
2021 / DUBAI

The primary aim of the Global Technology Conference (GTC) is to showcase the most innovative and original technological ideas and other developments from around the world that can create new opportunities for the LPG industry.

It brings the LPG industry together, represented by all its stakeholders, from research entities to academic partners, LPG producing companies to LPG equipment manufacturers, LPG distributors as well as the total LPG supply distribution chain and beyond it.

The preceding Global Technology Conferences that took place in Chicago, Seoul, Madrid, Doha, Bali, London, Miami, Singapore, Florence, Marrakech, Houston, Amsterdam and e-LPG Week were extremely successful and included presentations from all corners of the world. Typically, over 200 delegates attend GTC.
