A record 738 participants took part in this year’s Trinidad and Tobago Energy Conference.
Held from May 31st to June 2nd, the trade show was a little smaller than in 2020, with 61 exhibitors.
The Energy Chamber said Covid related concerns about overcrowding meant it prioritised entry for potential customers, investors, or partners rather than opening up entry to everyone.
The Chamber said initial feedback is that this was well received by exhibitors, who commented on the quality of their interactions.
There were 550 additional visitors to the trade show, with no secondary school student visitors as in previous years.
The Chamber, in a media release Monday, said in 2023, the Energy Conference will return to its usual January slot starting on January 23rd.
The Energy Chamber said it will continue to use a hybrid structure for the Conference, building on the lessons learnt from delivering virtual events in 2020 and 2021.
The Energy Chamber says it is planning for a bumper trade show and to return to the pre-pandemic partnership with the Heroes Foundation to introduce students to the industry.
