Top Energy & Tech Innovators on Show at Gastech 2018

Australia's top energy and gas technology innovators will descend on the world stage next week as part of the international Gastech Exhibition & Conference 2018.

For the first time in the event's 45-year history, NERA (National Energy Resources Australia  Growth Centre for the oil, gas and energy resources sector) is bringing Australian innovation under the one umbrella at Gastech 2018, facilitating a country pavilion to showcase the best of Down Under a first for the nation and our energy resources sector.

More than 30,000 visitors and 700 exhibitors are expected to visit Gastech 2018 in Barcelona Spain, from September 17 to 20.

Speakers at the Australian pavilion during the four-day event include Australian Ambassador to Spain HE Julie-Ann Guivarra, WA Agent General Mike Deeks and Shell Vice President for QGC Tony Nunan.

Deloitte partner Bernadette Cullinane will also be posting daily updates from the Australian pavilion. Follow #TeamAusGT for all the updates.

NERA chief executive Miranda Taylor said ground-breaking Australian innovation and technology leaders would be on show at the event.

Ms Taylor said NERA was proud to have taken the lead on this national presence at such an important event, ensuring the world's oil and gas industry could truly recognise the efforts taken by Australia to become a global energy powerhouse.

We here at NERA believe in Australian small businesses. They are building a brighter energy future for the whole of Australia, Ms Taylor said.

For the first time, we have coordinated Australia's presence at Gastech putting these businesses up in lights at one of the world's pre-eminent events in the energy resources space.

It's important that Australia continues to tell its story as the global leader in LNG exports and showcases our best and brightest as true global innovators.

As a result of NERA's funding and support, this year marks the first time Australia will exhibit a country pavilion at Gastech, supported by a custom program created by NERA around a strong cohort of innovative small businesses who are looking to take the next step to the export market and take their local business global.

The Smart Australia: Take Local Global program has put 10 small businesses through a rigorous three-day program where each business finetuned its individual commercial offering, value proposition and pitch to prepare them to take their businesses to the global marketplace at Gastech 2018.

NERA worked collaboratively with a group of proven experts in the delivery of this global program, led by EMJ Consulting, with assistance from Austrade, Mills Oakley and Wrays.
