Aussie energy and tech innovators on show at Gastech 2018
For the first time in the event’s 45-year history, NERA (National Energy Resources Australia — Growth Centre for the oil, gas and energy resources sector) is bringing Australian innovation under the one umbrella at Gastech 2018.
More than 30,000 visitors and 700 exhibitors are expected to visit Gastech 2018 in Barcelona, Spain, 17–20 September.
Speakers at the Australian pavilion during the four-day event include Australian Ambassador to Spain HE Julie-Ann Guivarra, WA Agent General Mike Deeks and Shell Vice President for QGC Tony Nunan.
Deloitte partner Bernadette Cullinane will also be posting daily updates from the Australian pavilion. Follow #TeamAusGT for all the updates.
NERA Chief Executive Miranda Taylor said groundbreaking Australian innovation and technology leaders would be on show at the event.
“We here at NERA believe in Australian small businesses. They are building a brighter energy future for the whole of Australia,” she said. “For the first time, we have coordinated Australia’s presence at Gastech putting these businesses up in lights at one of the world’s pre-eminent events in the energy resources space.
“It’s important that Australia continues to tell its story as the global leader in LNG exports and showcases our best and brightest as true global innovators.”
As a result of NERA’s funding and support, this year marks the first time Australia will exhibit a country pavilion at Gastech, supported by a custom program created by NERA around a strong cohort of innovative small businesses who are looking to take the next step to the export market and take their local business global.
The Smart Australia: Take Local Global program has put 10 small businesses through a rigorous three-day program where each business fine-tuned its individual commercial offering, value proposition and pitch to prepare them to take their businesses to the global marketplace at Gastech 2018.
NERA worked collaboratively with a group of proven experts in the delivery of this global program, led by EMJ Consulting, with assistance from Austrade, Mills Oakley and Wrays.
