Young Gastech - Targeted at young professionals with up to 18 months job experience, post graduates and final year students
Gastech Exhibition and Conference is the world's largest natural gas/LNG/energy supply chain event in Houston on September 17-19, 2019.
The event has been around for over 40+ years and is returning to North America for the first time in twenty years.
One of the special features of the exhibition and conference is Young Gastech , a one-day program that takes place within Gastech, targeted at young professionals with up to 18 months job experience, post graduates and final year students. The aim is to provide anyone considering a career in energy an insight into in the different avenues open to them within the industry, share how people within the industry began their careers, along with providing networking opportunities to work together and ask the Young Gastech speakers questions about the industry.
All majors are welcome to participate and the program is free-to-attend, but there is an application process that prospective attendees will need to go through. Students will need to answer the following question, “What roles could the gas industry play in progressing a lower-carbon economy whilst ensuring affordable energy for everyone?” as either an essay or a video submission. The applicant with the best submission on the topic will be given the chance to take the stage at Gastech on the final day of the event and present their answer to the delegates.
Past participants have noted how valuable this experience has been and that it was a differentiator on their CV, helping to secure a job post-graduation.
