Connecting at GIPEX 2019

The Centre was a leading exhibitor at the second annual Guyana International Petroleum Business Summit & Exhibition (GIPEX) 2019 held from November 20-22 in Georgetown. GIPEX 2019 provided an accelerated platform for major players from across the international oil and gas sector and local businesses to network, form collaborative partnerships in allied industries, and better appreciate how to enter the oil and gas sector in Guyana.

The Centre’s presence at the event provided access for scores of local and international businesses to meet with its representatives and learn more about its diverse business service offerings and the benefits of registering with the Centre’s Supplier Registration Portal (SRP).

By registering with the Centre’s SRP and joining its existing database of over 3,000 local and international companies, businesses have access to up-to-date procurement information and can better compete for contracts in the oil and gas sector and related businesses.

Natasha Gaskin-Peters, Centre’s Deputy Director, “There was great buzz around GIPEX this year. Guyanese-owned and operated companies made connections and are benefitting from the immense networking and business opportunities being showcased.”

More than 250 companies including 40 local suppliers and contractors participated in this unique gateway through which to feature Guyana’s untapped business potential.

GIPEX 2019 was organized by Valiant Business Media in partnership with the Government of Guyana through the Department of Energy, Ministry of the Presidency, and with support from the Guyana Office for Investment (Go-Invest). ExxonMobil Guyana was a strategic partner.
