London 2003, the international version of AAPG's successful
Prospect and Property Expo, will be held February 17-20 in London, England.
AAPG will present and expand
the second version of its popular prospect and property exhibition at
One Great George Street near the heart of London. It will be held in
conjunction with the Institute of Petroleum's ever popular "IP Week,"
Europe's annual focal point for leading figures of the oil and gas industry.
Last year, more than 1,200
people participated in IP Week activities, highlighted by the IP annual
dinner. This year's featured dinner speaker will be Philip Watts, chairman
of Royal Dutch Shell.
Last year's program set
a high standard of excellent prospect opportunities, a comfortable business
environment and a select audience that took time to discuss and investigate
each presentation. In short, a true exploration experience.
The mere fact that APPEX
London existed last year reflects the determination of those involved,
a gracious effort by the Institute of Petroleum and an insight for opportunity
from those companies that exhibited.
The Thursday technical symposium
of the IP Week program will be organized and convened by AAPG.
Chaired by Wolfgang Schollnberger
and Jeff Aldrich, the program is titled "Perspectives on the Upstream
Business of Oil and Gas." Presenters will include industry analysts
and corporate executives in a moderated forum of regional business climates
and strategies for growth.
Sessions include issues
and outlooks on Global Upstream, North Sea, Western and Eastern Europe,
Middle East and Africa.
You are encouraged to register
early both for the IP Week program and the APPEX London expo. IP Week
attendees will receive free access to the APPEX exhibition, and there
will be one-day APPEX viewer only passes as well.
For more information about
exhibiting at or attending APPEX
London. Viewer registration information and details of the IP Week
program can be found at www.ipweek.co.uk.
We look forward to you joining
us and the rest of the exploration industry at this truly innovative
international set of programs.
