GDS International Pushes the Boundaries Once More for its Latest NG Downstream Summit in
7th September 2012, Glasgow, SCOTLAND: On the 5th to the 7th of November 2012, The Turnberry Resort in Scotland will witness GDS International’s hotly anticipated second Next generation Downstream Europe Summit.
The summit is an invitation-only event, which means that only the most senior executives will be attending. Joining this year’s 65-strong delegation will be: Kari Kolsi, VP Porvoo Refinery for Neste Oil; Nathalie de Muynck, GMfor the Zeeland Refinery (Total/Lukoil);
Martin Hunter, Global Business Development Manager for M-I SWACO, a Schlumberger Company, was an attendee at last year’s event. In his own words: “The NG Downstream summit for me was the most productive conference I have ever been to since coming back into the oil field six years ago” In agreement, James Chew, General Manager Energy Services Downstream Europe, Russia and Africa for Nalco, says: “We really targeted high-level meetings that, if we were to do them independently, would involve a high amount of time, travel and expense. With this summit, you get it all in one place.”
Indeed, the summit has been expertly tailored to make use of every minute. Spread over an intensive two and a half days, the summit combines high-level roundtable discussion with working lunches, vibrant roundtables and intimate one-on-ones to ensure all delegates in attendance have unparalleled networking opportunities and receive the most possible ROI.
Joe Thompson, Next Generation Downstream Europe Summit Director for GDS International – the global events company behind the event – says: ‘Now more than ever, refineries in Europe need to better understand their business management procedures and how they can effectively monitor performance in a tough climate to enhance product yield, improve their environmental footprint and achieve long-term, sustained operational excellence. Our clients are telling us that this is the only event in the market that allows key decision makers to discuss top-level strategy to shape the future and recovery of the European market.’
