HOW DOES IT WORK?

Participant Journey Map 

The multi-award winning Gas Fest is a unique ‘for industry, by industry’ in-person and virtual platform that convenes leaders, policymakers, experts, stakeholders and influencers across the fuel value system to explore the role of gas as a marine fuel in the transition towards a carbon neutral future.

 

With 100% of previous participants agreeing it's "not just another Gas event", this 'by-invitation-only' industry gathering engages participants on a unique journey of discovery and collaboration. 

 

In a post-Covid world, Gas Fest will be an important platform to explore drivers, enablers and issues impacting the marine fuel mix at large, as well as defining and articulating the role of gas as a a marine fuel in achieving the IMO 2050 targets. 

Methodology

Acknowledging the combined value of experience and diversity of views that make up Gas Fest participants, we employ a uniquely engaging methodology to get the most out of our time together. With a combination of keynotes, work groups, chat rooms and solution pods, we ensure everyone contributes to a more sustainable maritime future. We utilise graphical scribing to capture the discussions 'as they happen'. The 'Fest' in Gas Fest also means we plan to have fun while we solve the most complex challenges facing our industry!
