Risk and governance: Essential insight, visionary solutions..... APPEC goes virtual

How many more oil shocks and black swan events can the industry take?
 
How can we face the effects of a pandemic and contend with a new world order?
 
How can we maintain healthy margins and successfully move forward?
 
Join us at the cornerstone of the oil industry - the Asia Pacific Petroleum Conference (APPEC), where we discuss these and more.
 
Back for its 36th year on September 14-16, this event gathers the energy industry together to discuss; risk and resilience in the new COVID-19 environment; develop potential operating and trading strategies to embrace the new supply/demand paradigm; explore novel strategic approaches to ensure success and contemplate new financial financing options, amongst numerous other key critical topics.
 
The conference will feature more pressing issues, increased industry insights and progressive networking. 2019 included more than 600+ senior delegates, 70+ speakers, and endless business benefits. 2020 will be no different - except that we will be meeting you virtually with on demand content and presentations that you can playback!
 
Join your industry leaders and hear how they are coping in such volatile and turbulent times.
 
This is where the energy markets meet.
