LNG Bunkering Summit North America

November 15-17, 2022- Washington, DC, United States

Driving the Decarbonisation and Sustainability of the North American Shipping Industry

To accompany our Global LNG Bunkering Summit, the most established event in the industry, we're delighted to announce due to great demand, the launch of the LNG Bunkering North American Summit. Our inaugural North American Summit, coming to Washington 15th-17th November 2022, will look at the viability of LNG as a long-term solution, explore the viability of AMFs and provide insights that cannot be found anywhere else into the decision making, planning, development, operation, safety and training processes that are driving the LNG Bunkering market in the region forward.

With industry-leading partners already on board and an incredible community built up over nine years of running the Global Summit, this inaugural event is not to be missed. Join us in Washington to discuss the future of the industry and gather in one place with the major players from the entire supply chain: Shipping companies, Law-makers, Ports, Terminals, Oil and Gas companies, Financiers, Classification Societies, Technology Providers and many more!
