Representatives from the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) industry will descend on London in September 2013 following a successful bid to host the LPG World Forum event by UKLPG. Contracts were signed in the historic North Tower of Tower Bridge that will see London become the host nation of the LPG World Forum. The Forum expects to attract over 3000 delegates from countries across the world and will be jointly hosted by the World LP Gas Association, the AEGPL, the European industry association and UKLPG, the national LPG trade association. Stephen Rennie, Chair of UKLPG said “We are delighted to have been chosen as the host nation for such a prestigious event. The event will attract LPG suppliers, distributors and equipment manufacturers from across the world and it will provide the UK industry with an unprecedented opportunity to meet key decision makers and innovators on home ground with whom they can do business. It will provide a huge boost not only for our members but for the wider UK economy.” Ramón de Luis Serrano, President of both the World LP Gas Association and AEGPL said “London was a natural choice for the 2013 event. Following the huge interest in the Royal Wedding and with the Olympics coming soon, the eyes of the World have been firmly focused on the UK and so we believe that the UKLPG’s national organising committee will be able to provide a first class business environment for our delegates within one of the most vibrant cities of the world.” Nikki Brown, Vice Chair of UKLPG said “This event will be of particular benefit to those companies that design, manufacture and supply equipment and services to the wider LPG industry, the cost saving that will be enjoyed by having all of the worlds buyers together in one place makes this a non miss able event.” Industry Heads Contract Signing 2013 Left – Right : Stephen Rennie – Chair UKLPG, Ramón de Luis Serrano – President AEGPL and World LP Gas Association and Nikki Brown – Vice Chair UKLPG World LP Gas Association is the authoritative, global voice for LP Gas.
