In its fifth year, FutureGAS 2013 has adopted a new look which celebrates the previous event's successes as one of Australia's leading gas conferences and exhibitions. This rebrand signifies the global transition into a lower emission natural gas economy and reflects the evolution of the annual gas event. Check out the new branding at www.futuregas.com.au

The rebrand is not the only exciting new development for FutureGAS; 2013 will also see conference sessions relocated inside the Exhibition Hall. By bringing delegates closer to the action, FutureGAS aims to increase traffic to exhibitor booths, as well as foster a greater sense of community amongst all event attendees.

Next year, the Exhibition Hall will also feature live demonstrations, allowing delegates to see the latest gas technology in action, and providing exhibitors with the opportunity to showcase products in their full capacity.

As in previous years, the streamed conference program will encompass both the upstream and downstream aspects of the industry, and will include both technical and business focuses.

All your favourite networking events will also return in 2013, including the free Engineers at the Exhibition Drinks, the gas industry night-of-nights – the Gala Dinner and Awards Evening, and the sell-out Women in Energy: Gas Networking Breakfast.

All major sponsorships were snapped up quickly, a measure of the gas industry’s excitement to be involved, with both loyal supporters and fresh additions on board for 2013.

MWM, a major contributor to the event, will be returning as Platinum Sponsor for the fifth year running. FutureGAS is also excited to welcome back Tremco Pipeline Equipment as Gold Sponsor, now in its fifth year supporting the event’s Exhibition Opening Cocktail Function.

New to the FutureGAS community is 2013 Gold Sponsor Comdain Infrastructure, who will be sponsoring the Gala Dinner. Returning sponsors GHD and Zinfra Group will also be supporting the event.
