Participants at the LPG West Africa Forum in Lagos
Gas Academy (Singapore) presented its first edition of LPG WEST AFRICA Forum & Exhibition, that took place at Eko Convention Centre, Lagos, Nigeria. The title for this year’s forum was ‘Building LPG Businesses in West Africa’. This event was well attended by more than 1,000 local participants who networked with more than 100 international companies who came down for the event.
This event was supported by the World LPG Association. The Managing Director, James Rockall, graced the event with his presence. This event was kick-started by a keynote presentation by Adedayo Adeshina, Programme Manager, National LPG Expansion Plan. In addition, the event had strong backing from local associations such as the Nigerian LPG Association, Nigerian Gas Association, Ghana LPG Operator’s Association and the Africa LPG Association.
Renzo Bee and Betty Ugona gave keynote presentations as they represented the Global LPG Partnership and Gas To Health Initiatives (GTHI) respectively, as the supporting organisations for the event.
The 2-day Forum & Exhibition has uniquely positioned the event to be a platform for networking and learning from these influential LPG experts.
Having the exhibition space next door also gave visitors a chance to exchange information and take a look at the new and advanced technological LPG equipment being offered by international dealers.
This Africa LPG Forum Series will be rotated yearly among the various key LPG markets in the region. Gas Academy is confident that with continuous support and encouragement from the region’s industry major stakeholders and ministries, it would be highly possible for the forum to become an annual affair in the ECOWAS Region.
