"We are very excited about the event. Several hundred members of the industry will meet in Istanbul for three days and government officials will also be invited," said Paul Ladner, the European LPG Association, AEGPL‘s president.
The World LPG Forum is the premier annual global event for the LPG industry and the AEGPL Congress brings the European LPG industry together every year. Two annual events will be rolled into one exceptional LPG conference and exhibition.
