The IGU Coordination Committee has announced the call for papers is now open for submissions for the 28th World Gas Conference (WGC 2021). The event will take place in Daegu, Korea on 21 – 25 June 2021.

The call for papers presents an opportunity for industry leaders worldwide to be part of the four-day conference programme and to submit a call for paper abstract to showcase their expertise on a vast range of topics and speak in front of the global WGC 2021 audience.

Held under the patronage of the International Gas Union (IGU), WGC 2021 has support from the Korean government, Daegu Metropolitan City, the National Organising Committee, hosted by the Korea Gas Union and host partner KOGAS. The event has confirmed over 21 global energy industry leaders as keynote speakers.

WGC 2021 will embark on a journey to discuss A Sustainable Future Powered by Gas and promote the role of natural gas in a sustainable future. The programme will also look at tackling critical issues such as meeting the increasing global energy demand by improving accessibility and availability, enhancing affordability while lowering greenhouse gas emissions and improving air quality.

“We look forward to presenting another high-value WGC event and encourage submissions from experts representing a wide range of topics and perspectives across the global gas industry to shape the global energy agenda and advance the role of natural gas in the sustainable future,” said Bong Kyu Park, Chairman of the National Organising Committee for WGC 2021. “The World Gas Conference takes it to the next level for interested speakers by providing the perfect opportunity to speak in front of the Asian gas market and beyond. We look forward to receiving submissions.”

The WGC 2021 programme mainly consists of plenary, current debates, industry insights and technology and innovation sessions. The call for papers submission is aimed to select speakers for the industry insights and technology and innovation sessions. Industry insights is comprised of 5 sessions with 39 topics while technology and innovation will have 4 sessions with 26 topics. In each session, there will be around 5 speakers with an assigned separate moderator.

WGC is the only global gas event conducted by the gas industry for the gas industry. The IGU has established 11 committees and two task forces to prepare a range of relevant topics confronting the gas industry, setting it apart from other global gas events. Industry professionals are invited to submit abstracts, which are reviewed by the committee members and selected abstracts are then incorporated into the programme alongside invited senior level speakers. The submission deadline is 19 October 2020.

The event is expected to draw more than 12 000 representatives of the gas industry including policymakers, business leaders, decision-makers, customers, NGOs, media and members of the global financial community. Over 500 speakers are due to present in 70 sessions across a 4-day programme and 350+ energy and energy-related companies will host stands in the EXCO exhibition space.
