The City Series – Pittsburgh is an invitation-only event with limited capacity, aiming to be inclusive and all-encompassing by welcoming diverse viewpoints from participants within and outside of the industry for true debate, dialogue, and formation of solutions. This event was presented by Energy Dialogues LLC, a distinguished international alliance of energy leaders, and took place at Carnegie Mellon University. Its objective was to bring subject matter experts, policymakers, socio-environmental representatives, and C-level leaders from all stages of the energy value chain together to connect and form partnerships through in-depth discussion of the energy market’s role in the economy and the world at large.
I used to believe that the energy business is already fully saturated with conferences; however Monika has shown that she has the tenacity and creativity to surprise even the most jaded conference attendee. Monika understands the energy business as well as any industry executive, and organizes events to ensure that each attendee walks away impressed.
– Jeff Hammad, Vice President, Commercial at Golden Pass LNG
The North American Gas Forum takes on the pressing issues in the industry and examines them through the view of the leaders who are tackling them every day. The forum attracts a high-level expert group of industry insiders whose caliber grows each year. I look forward to Direct Energy’s continued participation in the future.
– Badar Khan, President and CEO, Direct Energy
This is an outstanding forum and a great collection of very senior people both from industry and government with a great exchange about opportunities and trends in the natural gas industry. These are exciting times and this conference brings a lot of key people together.
– Bruce McKay, Managing Director of Federal Affairs, Dominion
Some of the key things we look at when attending these type of events are the program, the level of attendees and the networking opportunities. On all three fronts we are very pleased with the results from the North American Gas Forum.
