GETENERGY VTEC AMERICAS 2017
Connecting governments, the oil and gas industry and the education and training community to develop workforce capacity across the Americas
Getenergy Americas 2017 will take place in Colombia in association with ANH, providing a unique platform to create partnerships around education and workforce capacity development. Maintaining the growth of our industry in growth markets such as Colombia and Mexico, will be in part dependant on attracting and training future oil and gas professionals. Colombia looks to be the perfect backdrop for Getenergy’s 5th Americas event, as Ecopetrol looks to increase production by 2020, and more licensing auctions and fewer rules for the private market.
The event will address the need for greater engagement between government, industry and education, and looks to develop local education capacity.
We would like to thank all of our speakers, sponsors, partners and attendees who helped to make Getenergy VTEC Americas 2016 such a success, and we look forward to welcoming you all in 2017.
