The Queen’s Global Energy Conference was conceived in order to provide an unbiased platform where all parts of the energy sector may share their voice. We aim to create an environment where diverse and compelling discussions may be shared. Delegates will gain a holistic view of the energy landscape by connecting bright young students with current leaders. Sponsors will have the opportunity to show their support for a critical topic as well as facilitate the education of future industry leaders.
When: January 18th – 19th, 2020
Where: Queen’s University Campus
The QGEC executive team consists of Queen’s University students from a variety of programs from engineering to commerce to environmental science. The conference is fully run and organized by students.
QGEC is incredibly grateful for all the sponsorship we have received over the past five years from the 2016 conference all the way up to this year’s 2020 conference.
This conference would not be possible without the help of our generous sponsors. If you are interested in sponsoring this years 2020 conference through both in-kind and monetary value, please contact us through email@example.com.
