During these four days, key policymakers, private sector companies, investors, and energy experts will converge to explore opportunities for renewed and strengthened partnerships, while tackling concerns affecting the energy sector.

Challenges of climate change mitigation and maximising the benefits of local content development in Guyana and the region will also be discussed.

Key topics on the agenda include trends and challenges in shaping the future of energy, balancing economic growth with environmental sustainability, building resilient supply chains in the face of disruptions, and developing a workforce for the future.

President, Dr Mohamed Irfaan Ali, Prime Minister, Brigadier (Ret’d) Mark Phillips, vice president, Dr Bharrt Jagdeo, Prime Minister of the State of Qatar, His Excellency Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani, Suriname President, Chandrikapersad Santokhi, and prime minister of Trinidad and Tobago, Dr Keith Rowley are among the dignitaries lined up to make presentations at the conference.

“You can participate by just purchasing an exhibition ticket for $1,000. Come in with your business cards, come in with your proposals, come in with your CVs. There are 200 exhibitors, who are there to interact with you. So, I do believe there is opportunity for every person at different levels. There are opportunities for our sponsors, exhibitors, our delegates, and there are opportunities for the persons coming into the exhibition,” he said at a recent press conference on this year’s event.
