The Asian Oil, Gas & Petrochemical Engineering Exhibition, Oil & Gas Asia (OGA), that was to be held from 7 to 9 December 2021, will now be rescheduled and merged with Malaysian Oil & Gas Services Exhibition and Conference (MOGSEC) to take place as one tradeshow from 13 to 15 September 2022 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
This strategic move bringing the best of both events will see the emergence of a brand-new industry led premier event, hosting not just the largest participation in the ASEAN region, but also the most inclusive and content filled.
On the merger, Gerard Leeuwenburgh, Country General Manager of Informa Markets Malaysia commented: “This is our response to a rapidly changing industry amidst a post-COVID era. The strategic alliance will further add strong business values to the participation of sponsors, exhibitors, and stakeholders, providing partners and visitors a solid return to trade show experience. I am glad that the response given by our industry partners and clients towards this move has been nothing but positive.”
In the coming edition, a conference track helmed by the Malaysian Oil & Gas Services Council (MOGSC) and partners will bring together speakers across the full energy value chain, addressing critical issues pertaining the industry, while providing a platform to network in engaging dialogues. There will also be new dedicated zones targeted for the benefit of local OGSE players.
“We look forward to a continued successful relationship with Informa Markets and fully support the enhancement of MOGSEC with the merger with OGA in 2022. With this enhancement, MOGSEC will continue to be THE platform to spotlight local industry players, but now leveraging on an internationally recognized platform, OGA. Not only am I certain that this will be another successful collaboration between MOGSC and Informa, but it will also be able to raise the visibility of Malaysian local OGSE players to a different level,” said Ts. Sharifah Zaida Nurlisha Syed Ibrahim, President of Malaysian Oil & Gas Services Council (MOGSC)
