The Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition & Conference 2005

Wednesday, 09 February, 2005

The US and Danish governments are the latest international groups to commit to the Australasian Oil & Gas (AOG) 2005 Exhibition. They will join Australian government-backed groups from the UK, China, Italy, France, New Zealand and other hydrocarbon producing regions from around the world at what is recognised as one of the world's premier oil and gas events.

AOG 2005 will be one of the biggest events as yet staged in the newly-constructed Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre when it runs from 23-25 February 2005.

According to the organisers, AOG is the biggest oil and gas show of its type in the Southern Hemisphere and has been running for almost a quarter of a century.

And this biennial event is about to get bigger. After outgrowing three previous venues, AOG finally has a home that matches the expectations of the Expo; in 2005, it will be staged in the newly constructed Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.

According to the organisers, AOG is already the best attended oil and gas exhibition in Australia and expectations are that the move to a new purpose-built facility will lead to an increase in attendance. Recent anecdotal evidence is showing that the move is proving to be a highly popular choice with exhibitors, with stand bookings already well up on previous years and the remaining space is disappearing at a quick pace.

AOG 2005 has also obtained strong support from the Australian and Western Australian governments, as well as the backing of leading industry organisations around the world. With Australasia now experiencing a growth period in oil and gas-related developments, the three-day AOG 2005 Exhibition, according to the organisers, is expected to attract a large number of visitors and involve more than 400 companies from around the world.

The Federal Minister for Industry, Tourism and Resources, Ian Macfarlane, has accepted an invitation to open the AOG 2005 Exhibition and Conference. With the theme 'Australasian Oil & Gas - The Dawning of a New Era', the AOG 2005 Conference will provide a focused look at a range of new projects and will feature many of the new developments that are driving growth in this region.
