NGV Global 2017 Biennial Conference and Exhibition Set for Rotterdam
NGV Global’s 15th Biennial Conference and Exhibition—NGV Global 2017—has been set for March 21 to 23, 2017 at the Ahoy Convention Center and Arena in Rotterdam, Netherlands. NGV Global 2017 is the world’s leading natural gas conference, bringing together sustainable transportation stakeholders from around the world—fleets, technology companies, OEMs, infrastructure developers, fuel providers, and Government representatives and policymakers—to discuss the growing global use of natural gas in the transportation sector.
NGV Globals says important market drivers have brought the event to Rotterdam next year as a focus of alternative fuel developments both in Europe and internationally. New standards and policies are in place, the oil price is slowly but surely edging upward, emissions targets are known, gas supply is secure and the price is low, and there are exciting discussions taking place between stakeholders about the synergies of fuel supply for on-road, off-road, inland waterways and coastal shipping. NGV Global will lead that discussion at the conference in Rotterdam that will focus on policy, technology and implementation.
The change of venue from St. Petersburg in 2016 to Rotterdam in 2017 has received support from NGVA Europe, NGV Italy and NGV Global Sponsors and Members, and has already captured interest as an exciting location and natural gas mobility hub. Following the announcement of the new location during the NGV Italy event in Bologna last week, several companies have already moved to secure exhibition space at the Ahoy.
