The trade show will serve as a meeting point and networking event for executives in the industrial capital projects and infrastructure sectors, and is specifically directed at asset and resource owners, OEMs, EPCs and their project developers, as well as procurement and supply chain executives, said Specialized Business Media.

The conference will include presentations on managing contract risk and digital interconnectivity in the capital projects supply chain, as well as focus on the opportunities the sector has to leapfrog older and dirtier planned energy generation and instead focus on cleaner and more sustainable technology.

“The need for discussion is dramatically increasing as we work to decarbonise the economy and increase electrification,” said event organiser and Specialized Business Media general manager Nigel Brown. “There are many challenges to reduce emissions and reach net zero targets envisaged by governments, but also incredible opportunities as new technology and solutions become commercially viable.

“The global energy mix needs to undergo a seamless shift from fossil fuels to renewables and other cleaner technologies. As this energy transformation gains momentum, new ecosystems are forming, and new technologies are emerging.”
