2019 GasNZ Industry Forum

Following on from last years’ “biggest ever” forum, we are pleased to announce that the 2019 GasNZ Industry Forum is to be held Wednesday 30 October – Friday 1 November at the Rydges Latimer Square in Christchurch.

This year the Forum theme is “Pathways to net zero carbon”, which continues the discussion around options for the gas industry in the face of the climate change challenge.

The overall shape of the Forum programme is likely to remain similar to that of previous years. Exact programme details and pricing will be announced once these have been finalised by the Forum Committee.

The Committee is now seeking expressions of interest from anybody interested in presenting at this year’s Forum, or ideas for topics you would like to see covered. All we initially require are presenter contact details and a brief description of the topic you would be addressing. Responses can be sent to Peter Gilbert at, or feel free to give him a call on (04) 914 1765.

Those planning to attend this year’s event should consider booking accommodation early by logging onto the hotels’ accommodation booking page.

The Forum provides a unique opportunity to engage with decision makers in the Natural Gas and LPG Industries’. Click here to see this year’s sponsorship opportunities, including Trade Display spaces on offer.

For those who have attended previous Forums, we thank you for your ongoing support of this significant industry event, and we look forward to seeing you at this year’s Forum. Keep an eye out for further email updates or you can check on the Forum page of the GasNZ website.
