THE PURPOSE AND GOAL OF VGE

VGE is an international networking event for energy experts, focusing on gases including natural gas and biogas (LNG & LBG) for power generation, transport and shipping. The event is held in the growing regional gas cluster. The cluster has several active companies and actors working together with innovative projects such as a new energy laboratory and gas fueling stations.

VGE will take place on Thursday, 22 March 2018, in the Vaasa City Hall. At VGE, enterprises will have an opportunity to meet other actors, driving forces and potential partners from Finland and various other parts of the world.

At the heart of the event is the exhibition hall where exhibitors can showcase their activities and products. Participants have an opportunity to reserve conference rooms to hold meetings with corporate representatives. In addition, there will be a free open seminar, exhibitor briefings and an evening and networking function on Wednesday, 21 March 2018.
