The 15th Annual AVCA Conference will be held in Marrakech, Morocco

Given its rising regional influence, Morocco is an increasingly attractive investment destination. Our data shows that Morocco accounts for the largest share of private equity investments in North Africa, with one of the highest middle class concentrations in Africa.

AVCA continues to showcase the fastest growing countries in the world to investors, and we are delighted to gather the industry in Morocco in April 2018.

25-29 June 2018
Walter E. Washington Convention Centre, 801 Mount Vernon Place Northwest, Washington, DC 20001, United States of America

 The 27th World Gas Conference is the largest and most high-profile global gas conference and exhibition. 

From June 25-29, 2018, Washington DC is expected to host 12,000 attendees, 500 speakers and 350 exhibitors representing more than 600 companies from 100 countries.

Presented by the International Gas Union (IGU) and run since 1931, the World Gas Conference has 85 years of experience of bringing the gas industry together and delivers excellent insight. It creates exceptional business and learning opportunities, outstanding networking, and promises great return-on-investment.

The program benefits from the unrivalled expertise of more than 1,000 industry specialists representing 30 countries of the IGU's 11 committees and two task forces. During the three year period they work together to prepare a program that is unique amongst other global gas events featuring 500 speakers and designed to attract 4,000 conference delegates. The program will address the most up-to-date business critical issues facing the global gas industry.

The 12,000+ attendees of the gas industry are made up of policy makers, influential leaders, buyers and sellers, industry and technical experts, customers, NGOs, media, members of the financial community, and others.

It is the first time ever that the World Gas Conference will be held in a country that is both the largest producer and consumer of natural gas. WGC was last held in the USA in 1988, and it will likely be decades before it is held in the USA again.
