Thursday 26th May 2022

09:30 – 16:00

Join us virtually or in person at The Chester Hotel, Aberdeen


Join us as we lead the conversation on Aberdeen’s future as Europe’s energy hub.

This hybrid event will look to answer the question: why Aberdeen? We will showcase the innovative leaders and businesses that make investment in the city’s future a compelling proposition.

Our expert panels will share their vision for Aberdeen’s evolution as an energy hub in a net-zero world. And we will celebrate the people, skills and technologies on our doorstep, exploring how that local expertise leads the way both in the UK and globally.

Across two keynote sessions with Q&A, Invest ABZ will cover topics including:

  • Technology and R&D
  • Talent & Skills
  • Offshore wind & renewables
  • Supply chain
  • Decommissioning
  • Hydrogen & CCUS
  • Pipelines
  • Local business
  • Growth sectors & opportunities
  • Future of oil & gas in Aberdeen

Whether you are part of Aberdeen’s diverse business community, an investor or business considering greater involvement in this thriving market, or a representative of local or national government, Invest ABZ will provide essential insight into the region’s potential.

You can register FREE to attend virtually or physically at The Chester Hotel, Aberdeen. Please note that in-person tickets are limited.
