THE WHO'S WHO OF MEXICO'S ENERGY SECTOR

The Assembly brings together 350+ CEOs, CFOs, VPs and Regional Heads of E&Ps, High-Level Investment Funds as well as Regulatory & Government bodies. Mexico Assembly is attended by operators in both the Public and Private Sector, alongside Consultants to gather for two full days behind-closed-doors. Offering 1-2-1 meetings and high-level discussions to navigate the uncertainty surrounding Mexico’s energy industry. Mexico Assembly boasts representatives from 15+ countries and an audience made up of over 65% VP level and above. Mexico Assembly is where Mexico’s Energy Sector sets the agenda for the weeks, months and years ahead.
After the postponement of the 2020 Mexico Assembly, the Energy Council is delighted to confirm that the 2021 Mexico Assembly will go ahead on May 26-27 2021 and take place exclusively on the Energy Council’s Virtual Event Platform. In light of the travel restrictions in place due to the pandemic, we believe the best and safest way to ensure that the sector’s key stakeholders are able to share insights and network is via our fully integrated Virtual Event Platform. Between now and May, all sponsors, delegates and speakers will be shown how to effectively use the platform to ensure all parties maximise its potential.
The Mexico Assembly Team has been in touch directly with all sponsors, speakers and delegates in relation to the status of the Assembly and are delighted to announce the Virtual format for 2021.
We look forward to seeing you all in May!
