The International Energy Conference and Expo Guyana 2023 has announced that ExxonMobil Guyana will be its premier sponsor.
President of ExxonMobil Guyana, Alistair Routledge in a statement said the theme for the Energy Conference and Expo – ‘Harnessing Energy for Development’ – is aligned with the company’s commitment to sustainably produce energy in a manner that protects people and the environment.
“Guyana is a thought-leader on low carbon development with an ambitious strategy to secure growth and prosperity for current and future generations. These credentials, I believe, put Guyana in the driver’s seat on energy issues regionally if not globally, and the International Energy Conference is an ideal platform to learn of developments and engage in the debate. ExxonMobil Guyana is proud to be associated with this event and is excited to be part of the transformational journey taking place in Guyana,” Mr Routledge said.
The conference, which will bring together policymakers, academics, industry professionals and entrepreneurs from around the world, will again see the participation of Heads of State and Government, and global energy thought-leaders such as Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs.
Chief Executive Officer of the International Energy Conference and Expo Guyana, Kurt Baboolall said the organisation is appreciative of the support it continues to receive from corporate Guyana.
“ExxonMobil, as is demonstrated in Guyana, is an unparalleled leader in energy development today and remains committed to meeting current and future needs for development. The rapid development of energy resources being undertaken by ExxonMobil Guyana has positioned Guyana in the middle of the current global discussions,” Mr Baboolall said.
Minister of Natural Resources, Vickram Bharrat also registered Government’s support for the conference and expo. He said the conference, which is entering its second edition, creates a platform for Guyana to showcase the vast opportunities for development and investment.
“Guyana of course is one of the newest oil producing countries in the Latin America and Caribbean region, and we have been moving at an unprecedented rate in developing our oil and gas sector and at the same time we have been incentivizing and working towards developing the traditional non-oil sectors,” he added.
The conference is billed for 14-17 February 2023 at the Guyana Marriott, and is expected to feature 35 sponsors, 300 exhibitors, and 1,200 delegates.
According to IECEG, over 60% of all spots have been taken and the remaining openings have become extremely competitive to secure.
The registration portal for the conference and expo can be found on the conference website, www.guyanaenergy.gy.
Pre-registration is now open for sponsors, exhibitors, in-person attendees, virtual attendees, workshop participants, and members of the media, all being done online.
