Over 5000 participants expected at 2025 Guyana Energy Conference

…event set for February 18-21

Following another successful event this year, the fourth installment of the Guyana Energy Conference and Supply Chain Expo has been set for February 2025 with over 5,200 participants expected.
Billed for February 18 to 21, 2025, the conference will be held under the theme, ‘Connecting the Dots: Integrating the Future.’ According to the conference Secretariat, this flagship event is anticipated to attract over 5,000 delegates, feature 180+ booths, and host more than 70 distinguished speakers at the Guyana Marriott Hotel.
It was explained that the theme emphasises the interconnected nature of various elements within the energy sector and the wider supply chain ecosystem. It highlights the necessity of collaboration among stakeholders – including government bodies, industry players, academia, and civil society – to address common challenges and seize shared opportunities.
“Given Guyana’s strategic location within the Caribbean region, the theme for this four-day event also highlights the importance of regional integration and fostering closer ties with neighbouring countries in areas such as trade, energy, and infrastructure development.
‘Connecting the Dots: Integrating the Future’ therefore serves as a unifying theme that brings together diverse stakeholders with a shared commitment to shaping a more sustainable, resilient, and inclusive future for Guyana’s energy sector and supply chain ecosystem,” the Secretariat explained.
This fourth installment of the conference will continue its leadership on discussions pertaining to a just energy transition and balancing economic growth with environmental sustainability. Other focus areas include financing sustainable development initiatives, developing a workforce for the future, building resilient supply chains, and promoting the advancement of women in the industry. Given the expanded focus of the conference, panel discussions will also identify investment opportunities in agriculture, tourism and infrastructure projects locally and regionally.
Since its 2021 debut, the Guyana Energy Conference and Supply Chain Expo has established itself as a meaningful platform for connecting industry professionals, government officials, investors, and experts in the energy sector. Participants have benefitted from invaluable engagements with policymakers and regulatory authorities, leading to a deeper understanding of the legal framework, as well as, key
development plans.
For exhibitors and participating business professionals, this platform has allowed for products, services, and solutions to be showcased to a targeted audience with opportunities to connect with potential partners for joint ventures, strategic alliances, and project collaborations.
The Secretariat said, having been entrusted with the oversight and execution of the conference, it has meticulously crafted its 2025 prospectus for sponsors and exhibitors who wish to not only gain visibility within the industry, but also play a crucial role in shaping the discourse around energy sustainability and supply chain excellence.
The third edition of the Guyana Energy Conference and Supply Chain Expo, held from February 19 to 22, 2024, saw participation from more than 21 countries in 19 sectors – outside of the energy sector.
Speakers at this year’s conference included the Prime Minister of Qatar, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani along with Regional Leaders, representatives from international oil and gas operators and specialists from various fields such as energy and environment.
Back in April, the Secretariat announced leadership changes with a new Chief Executive Officer and a new Media and Operations Director. (G8)
