Organised by:
The premier gas event,
at the heart of Europe
Dear Colleagues,
Having supported the European
Gas Conference for the past
6 years, OMV is delighted to
become co-hosts of the 8th
edition of the conference, taking
place in January, 2015.
With over 350 key
representatives from regional
governments and industry leaders from more than
80 gas producers, the European Gas Conference is the
premier event at the heart of Europe.
The Southern and Eastern European region is an
important future market for the European gas business.
Today more than ever, developing its potential in terms of
interconnectivity and cross border trading opportunities is
the key to create further growth.
Once again located in Vienna, the Conference offers
an ideal platform to discuss European security of
supply and the role of alternative supply routes.
Due to the current time of change in the gas market, the
industry needs to more than ever adapt its strategies.
Interconnectivity is the corner stone in a sequence of
various measures for enhanced European energy security.
Take part in the debate and promote the role of gas in
the European energy mix by attending the European
Gas Conference.
We look forward to welcoming you to Vienna in January,
for what promises to be a pioneering gathering of our peers.
Best regards,
Hans Peter Floren
Member of the Executive Board - Gas & Power
OMV Aktiengesellschaft

TOP TIPS FOR ENTERING THE EUROPEAN GAS AWARDS OF EXCELLENCE:
1. Be concise as well as comprehensive. While it’s valuable to provide as much relevant information as
possible your chances of success will be improved if you can make very clear, very quickly, how your
entry meets the criteria and what makes it stand out
2. Check that you have addressed the award criteria before finally submitting your entry. Otherwise
excellent entries can fall at the first hurdle if information on a key criterion is omitted.
3. Be as specific as possible. A statistic that illustrates success will be more powerful than a generic
comment.
4. Remember that the information you provide remains confidential to the judges. You can be
confident that information which may be seen as sensitive (such as sales changes etc) will not be
shared more widely – and such information often provides the best illustration of success.
