Why do you need to participate?

Key issues such as Gas Monetisation, Development of Petrochemicals sector in Russia as well as the Modernisation of the Refining Sector will be addressed during Moscow Week’s two events: GPTC & RRTC. The goal of Moscow week is to provide delegates with the latest updates to help them have a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities that this region offers.

We look forward to welcoming you to Moscow Week where we will bring together major Gas Producers, Refiners and Petrochemical Producers with Licensors, Contractors, Equipment Suppliers, Consultants etc. to exchange ideas and opinions on critical market and technology issues and discuss the road ahead for our industry.



GPTC - is a combination of our two traditional Gas and Petrochemicals conferences. Since the topics of these conferences are closely connected, the participants now have a unique opportunity to discuss issues of interest with their colleagues from related industries at one site!



Organised in 2018 for the first time, this session is the most effective way to visit all the booths and exchange business cards. We will be organising an express review of the exhibition, so that exhibitors can present their capabilities and delegates are able to return to their preferred stand for more information.

The week offers:


of intensive networking


from technologing companies


from industry experts


for exhibiting companies
