Plan now to be a part of the 2024 Energy Summit, hosted by the AAPG’s Latin America and Caribbean Region, taking place at the Enjoy Punta del Este Resort in Punta del Este, Uruguay on 19-21 November 2024.

The Energy Summit is an executive level event connecting decision makers working to provide reliable, affordable, and sustainable energy for communities throughout the world.

Enjoy keynote presentations and panel discussions with industry and government leaders who will share insights about E&P activities, decarbonization strategies, and technological advances shaping the region’s energy future. Meet privately with current and future partners at the Business-to-Business session held on-site during the event.

About the Energy Summit

The AAPG Energy Summit builds on the success of AAPG Energy Opportunities Conferences held in Cartagena Colombia in 2018 and Mexico City, Mexico in 2023, and the Energy Opportunities Executive Forums and a Virtual Conference held during the COVID-19 pandemic.

On average, 48 percent of Energy Opportunities event attendees held the position of CEO, Vice President, Director or Commissioner.

Our success stems from our compelling multidisciplinary programs including a diverse group of 50 speakers representing 40+ organizations.

The 2024 Energy Summit has a different name but a similar format. The event convenes executives and business professionals from national and international companies; government officials; and leaders from the technology, legal and financial sectors to explore new opportunities, network, and share strategies for success in an industry working to maintain energy security while moving toward a decarbonized economy.

The 2-day includes plenary sessions and panel discussions, International Pavilion presentations featuring investment opportunities in oil and gas and renewable resources, and an exhibition showcasing the latest trends and technologies shaping the energy sector.

While attending the Summit, visit our Business-to-Business (B2B) session, and take advantage of the opportunity to meet one-on-one with current and prospective partners in private conference rooms.

Officials from regulatory agencies and ministries are invited to arrive a day early and attend a private meeting designed to promote regional integration among entities working to develop energy policy and regulations for hydrocarbons and for renewable energies in their countries.

International Pavilion

The AAPG International Pavilion is pleased to be participating at AAPG’s Inaugural Energy Summit Conference in Punta del Este hosted by longtime IP participant ANCAP.

The International Pavilion (IP) provides a worldwide showcase for NOCs, Ministries, and government agencies to promote a broad spectrum of investment opportunities in Oil & Gas, Geothermal, Mineral Resources, Hydrogen and Renewable Energy generation and to share government strategies for moving toward a low-carbon economy.

The International Pavilion has two exciting offerings at the 2024 Energy Summit:

  • IP Stands – a dedicated area exhibition showcasing recent activity and exploration opportunities in the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia
  • IP Theatre – a program track featuring 20-minute presentations delivered by IP exhibitors

Visiting the stands and attending theatre presentations give Summit attendees the chance to meet with government and NOC representatives and get a first-hand look at opportunities to help countries meet increased energy demand while reducing their carbon footprint.

B2B Session

Taking place throughout the Summit, ongoing Business-to-Business (B2B) sessions give attendees the opportunity to meet one-on-one with current and prospective partners in private conference rooms located at the event venue.
A few weeks prior to the Summit, attendees interested in participating in the B2B sessions will complete a questionnaire identifying the companies and individuals they would like to meet with during their time in Punta del Este. Participants can set up meetings prior to the event or simply request a room while on site.
