Two key events for the Oil and Gas sector will be held in October in Almaty and Astana, successively - Annual International Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference KIOGE-2013 and VIII KAZENERGY Eurasian Forum. Both events are of special interest to Tengizchevroil.
On October 1-4, Atakent Almaty Exhibition Center will be filled with visitors to the International Exhibition KIOGE-2013, where everyone will have opportunity to meet with representatives of oil and gas companies, learn more about their activities and to discuss a wide range of issues – from employment to business cooperation opportunities. According to organizers, the event will bring together nearly 450 companies from 22 countries.
The organizers of KIOGE-2013 have made a number of enhancements to this year’s exhibition to facilitate meetings between participants and visitors, participation in workshops and networking. Now, visitors and participants can easily find their desired booth through mobile applications and online boards arranged throughout the center. These boards also enable attendees to pre-schedule meetings. In the middle of one of the pavilions, there is an area for workshops where a large screen will show video presentations. The new format for the workshops, as noted by the organizers, will attract the maximum number of listeners.
