The World Gas Conference (WGC) is known as the Olympic Conference of the global gas industry, and China was awarded the right to host the conference for the first time, which will be held in May 2025 at the China National Convention Center I and II. The total exhibition scale of the conference is over 40,000 square meters, and more than 6,000 industry leaders and energy experts from nearly 100 countries are expected to attend the conference.
Beijing Gas Group Co., Ltd. and Beijing North Star Industrial Group Co., Ltd. signed a strategic cooperation agreement.
Since 2014, when Chairman Li Yalan of Beijing Gas Group ran for the chairmanship of IGU and bid to host the congress, China National Convention Center received several visits as the bidding venue, and finally helped the congress to successfully bid with first-class venue facilities and perfect service level. With the establishment of North Star Convention & Exhibition Group and its renaming to Capital Convention & Exhibition (Group) Co., Ltd. in July 2021, the whole industry chain upstream and downstream business has been continuously innovated and developed in the direction of "internationalization, branding, and digitalization". During the preliminary preparation of WGC2025, Capital Convention & Exhibition (Group) Co., Ltd. gradually changed its role from a single venue service provider to an exhibition operator and assisted Beijing Gas Group in completing previous research and exhibition planning for the conference, which was recognized by Beijing Gas Group and the International Organizing Committee.
At the first steering committee meeting of WGC2025 held on August 25, Capital Convention & Exhibition (Group) Co., Ltd. was approved as the IGU-approved WGC2025 designated operator (PCEO). After the signing of the commissioning agreement between the two parties at the International Conference & Exhibition Economic Development Forum, Capital Convention & Exhibition (Group) Co., Ltd. will be fully responsible for the conference's exhibition planning, investment, and exhibition recruitment, media promotion, etc., and join hands with Beijing Gas Group to create a top international-level gas event.
In addition, North Star Group and Beijing Second Foreign Language Institute have agreed to jointly establish Beijing Second Foreign Language Institute - North Star Exhibition Research Institute, integrate the advantages of resources, collaborate to cultivate exhibition professionals, create a new model of collaborative education between schools and enterprises in the exhibition industry, and provide support for exhibition talents for the construction of the capital international communication center.
Firm belief, heel things to increase China. The conference and exhibition industry is a strong engine of urban development and the modern service industry. The current impact of the epidemic has not yet subsided, accelerating the recovery of the industry, and the desire to strengthen communication and promote economic and trade cooperation through conference and exhibition activities is stronger than ever.
