LONDON – Jan. 6 – Agility, a leading global logistics provider, has been awarded a contract to provide international freight and on-site handling services for the Gastech Conference & Exhibition in 2017 and 2018.

As official freight and on-site handling contractor, Agility Fairs & Events will assist exhibitors and their contractors with logistical and shipping requirements of exhibits to and from the show.

The Gastech Conference & Exhibition is organized by dmg::events UK and is the leading event for the international oil and gas industry, as well as a global meeting place for energy professionals working in the natural gas industry. This event is held every 18 months and attracts over 400 international exhibitors and 15,000 other delegates, VIPs, trade visitors and exhibition representatives. The Gastech Conference & Exhibition, first held in 1972, has been held 29 times.
