Host to 1,500+ conference delegates, the 2018 GPS Technical and Business Conference will attract over 150 expert speakers in their field. This premier conference will provide a platform for all industry players to share new technologies, develop strategies, and introduce new energy sources not yet discovered.

With the 2018 call for abstracts now open, technical professionals have the opportunity to submit proposals before February 28, to be considered for the 2018 GPS Conference. Global Petroleum Show is testament to the rising demand for knowledge exchange in our ever-changing energy world.
