Save the date in your diary now - Wednesday 9th February 2011, Washington DC: WLPGA North American-European Summit.

The World LP Gas Association (WLPGA), the global voice of the LP Gas industry, has decided to change the theme of its one day regional summit in Washington DC on Wednesday 9th February 2011. The Summit is part of a global series of gatherings with key industry business leaders and will now focus on North American and European markets under the title "LP Gas: Exceptional Energy for North America and Europe." Attendees will exchange ideas, innovations, and business opportunities, and explore crucial issues to the LP Gas industry in the North American and European markets. Come learn about developments in two of the world's biggest LP Gas markets, how they are similar, where they differ and their impacts on the global industry.

This event is free for WLPGA members, and by invitation to other industry leaders.

WLPGA is supported for this event by the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC), the National Propane Gas Association, Ferrellgas and AmeriGas/UGI.

Issues to be discussed include:
  • Where are the similarities and the differences in European and North American markets and how can they learn from each other?
  • Increasing cooperation worldwide is a priority for our industry. What is happening in North America and Europe to help the industry address global challenges in a unified way?
  • What is the future of Autogas on both sides of the Atlantic and what models from the rest of the world are relevant?
