AO EXPOCENTR, Messe Düsseldorf GmbH and OOO Messe Düsseldorf Moscow are postponing the leading networking platform for the Russian oil and gas industry NEFTEGAZ due to the effects of the Coronavirus Covid-19. The trade fair and the parallel National Oil and Gas Forum will now take place from 22 to 25 June 2020 in the halls of the Expocentre exhibition center in Moscow.
“We are very lucky to have found alternate dates for our trade fair so quickly. The entire team of Messe Düsseldorf together with its co-organisers, partners and exhibitors has put a great deal of effort into the preparation of the trade fair. Together we will make sure that our exhibition halls in June will again turn into the central meeting point for all top decision-makers in the Russian oil and gas industry,” says Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director Operative Trade Fair Business at Messe Düsseldorf GmbH.
NEFTEGAZ is the biggest trade fair in Russia and it is among the top ten global oil and gas trade fairs every year. More than 600 exhibitors from 25 countries present a wealth of innovations and services at the four-day event to thousands of trade visitors.
