Early in March 2018, in Astana, a Memorandum of Cooperation was signed between KAZENERGY “the Kazakhstan Association of Oil&Gas and Energy Sectors” and ITECA the leading Kazakhstan exhibition company .
The organisers of the two key oil and gas events - KAZENERGY Forum and KIOGE Kazakhstan International Exhibition and Conference decided to hold the events every two years. Starting from this year, KIOGE will be held in even-numbered years, and KAZENERGY Forum in odd-numbered years. The purpose of the two events is the development of the oil and gas sector, production support, attraction of new technologies and investment.
KAZENERGY Forum is the main international event for Kazakhstan energy sector. The heads of countries, governments, international energy companies and well-known industry experts attend the event. The success and credibility of the Forum is largely related to the participation of influential political figures and recognized experts in the field with a worldwide reputation.
The KIOGE exhibition and conference for the whole history of its existence became not just an industry event of specialists, KIOGE became a visiting card of oil and gas industry of Kazakhstan. Annually KIOGE hosts 500 companies-participants of the exhibition and conference and more than 4600 professional visitors from more than thirty countries. KIOGE is a business platform that demonstrates the main trends of oil and gas community, it is equally comfortable for top managers and technical specialists, representatives of sales departments, marketing services and auditors, lawyers and HR managers.
In the current alliance, these two events will cover a full range of geopolitical global issues affecting the sector within the framework of KAZENERGY Forum. Current issues, business needs and technical challenges will be covered extensively at KIOGE exhibition and conference. As the result, the two events are highly complementary, giving the industry a business focused exhibition in Almaty in one year and a high-level geopolitically focused forum in Astana the following year.
KIOGE organisers consider the agreement reached with strategic partner of KAZENERGY Association as a new milestone in the 25-years history of the project. This year, KIOGE exhibition and conference will be held on September 26-28, at Atakent Exhibition Center in Almaty with active support of KAZENERGY Association and traditional support of key structures of oil and gas industry in Kazakhstan. The organisers are preparing a new format for holding of the exhibition and conference on the united platform.
