About us

The World LPG Forum & AEGPL Congress is the ultimate event for those interested in LPG.

The event brings together the brightest minds from the academic field, the most innovative technologies available, and the experience of seasoned professionals. Typically, the World LPG Forum & AEGPL Congress has two dimensions: the Conference Programme, and the Exhibition Area. The Exhibition Area is the meeting point for business people and executives interested in knowing more about the most cutting-edge technology developed by the industry. The Conference Programme gathers a vast number of experts and academics exchanging views on the latest scientific and technological innovations. In addition, high-level policy makers representing the four corners of the World will be present, sharing the best examples from their regions and providing the necessary political understanding to the challenges and opportunities ahead for LPG.

WLPGA and AEGPL are particularly excited to bring this event to Istanbul, a city in the crossroads of different cultures, traditions and perspectives. Istanbul has historically been a welcoming city to knowledge and we are certain the 29th World LPG Forum & 2016 AEGPL Congress in Turkey will be a success.
