It’s A Wrap | Natural Gas Connect

Natural Gas Connect Wrap Up Blog

Earlier this month, Southern Gas Association hosted attendees at our first ever Natural Gas Connect. This conference merged SGA’s ESHTMCEC and Operating Conference to create a premier experience for the natural gas industry.

Connecting at the J.W. Marriott San Antonio Hill Country, nearly 1,300 leaders from across the natural gas business and country gathered together to network with 117 exhibit booths, engage in 150+ sessions and learn from 331 speakers all in a matter of three days.

Sessions included experts from the industry and facilitated open discussions involving the challenges our industry is facing. SGA volunteer leaders led the exploration of new ideas and continued the push toward a cleaner energy future.

The conference began with registration in full swing, general session and then dusting off the cowboy boots dancing the night away at the special event at Knibbe Ranch. After a night of armadillo racing and line dancing competitions, day two had a full schedule of the exhibit hall, roundtable sessions and ending the day with the Section Connection Hub, a place to network with a twist of competition. Day three wrapped up those meaningful conversations with committee breakouts and joint sessions before heading home.

We are excited to see the conversations and ideas generated at Natural Gas Connect become part of our 2020 vision and strategy.
