The Global Energy Show Canada (GESC) kicks off on Tuesday, welcoming more than 30,000 attendees over the next three days. From June 11 to 13, 2024, international delegates, speakers, and exhibitors will converge at the newly expanded BMO Centre in Stampede Park, offering energy professionals a platform to engage in debate, discussion, and collaboration on the most pressing issues in the global energy sector, both current and future.

Key topics for this year's convention include meeting increasing global energy demand, providing clean, affordable, and accessible energy, investments in new projects and technologies, changing global energy policy, energy security, and game-changing technology and innovation.

The exhibition features 500 exhibitors showcasing live equipment, technology, and services across five exhibition halls. Attendees can explore multiple specialized topic zones, nine international country pavilions, and special presentation theatres. Additionally, the ISA Calgary Show is co-located alongside the expo for 2024.

“We are thrilled to be hosting the Global Energy Show in Calgary for the 2024 edition, bringing together industry leaders from around the world to address complex issues currently facing the global energy value chain,” said Nick Samain, Senior Vice President North America, dmg events. “This year’s theme of Energy Powering Opportunity is driving our mission to expand a number of new and exciting topics on the exhibition floor and in our conference sessions. We’re looking forward to hearing from leaders in everything from oil and gas and LNG to hydrogen and CCUS, wind, solar, petrochemicals and much more.”

The event’s Strategic Conference will provide insight into global geopolitics and energy policy outlook, Canadian innovation and technology investment opportunities, challenges of decarbonizing while protecting the economy and jobs, scaling energy exports, energy investment outlook and new project announcements. The Technical Conference will dive deep into the complex technical issues that face the energy industry today with critical, industry-leading knowledge from top executives and industry influencers.

“No single source of energy can meet increasing global energy demand, and the Global Energy Show Canada is where Canadians can meet the world over three-days, all under one roof, and demonstrate their vision and leadership to meet global challenges with real-world solutions,” added Samain.   

This year’s event will feature four theatres hosted on the exhibition floor, including the Plug and Play Innovation Zone, showcasing the leading innovators essential in our quest for a cleaner tomorrow; the Future Forward – Next Gen Zone, known as the place to be for young professionals to learn more about the opportunities that exist and align with their outlook on sustainability in the energy industry; the Emissions Reduction Zone, showcasing solution providers that monitor, measure and reduce methane emissions; and the Equity Zone, highlighting the successes, challenges and opportunities that exist for diversity and inclusion as the energy industry strives to create a more diverse and fair talent base.
