Post Oak Hotel | Houston, TX
KPMG’s 17th Annual Global Energy Conference, hosted by the KPMG Global Energy Institute, took place June 5-6, 2019 in Houston, Texas. It brought together senior energy executives and luminaries gather to share insights and discuss key issues impacting the industry. This year’s event titled “Thriving in an unpredictable world” discussed the need to move away from a reactive focus on relevance and merely surviving toward a proactive effort to increase value and spur growth. It’s about thriving in what has become a volatile, unpredictable energy environment.
