The inaugural APPEX Regional conference in 2012, complimenting the annual Global APPEX event every March in London, took place on 8th and 9th November (2012) in Istanbul and was organised in association with Turkey’s National Oil Company, TPAO.

Nearly 200 attendees from 29 countries came together last year to present and review upstream exploration and production deals in the exhibition, hear about the opportunities and challenges relating to the regional exploration of Eastern Europe, East Mediterranean, Former Soviet Union and Northern Iraq in the Speaker Programme and then discuss, meet new people and network the breaks and receptions.

The regional event has been built on the success of the annual APPEX Global conference in London, a forum established over 12 years for those looking to build partnerships and promote prospects for exploration and production all over the world.

Back by popular demand APPEX Regional will this year be held in Athens from the 5th – 7th November. APPEX is one, if not the world’s best regarded non-profit Global Acquisition and Divestment (A&D) events, organised by the AAPG, which brings together upstream E&P principals, senior managers, business developers and new venture managers for an unmatched opportunity to network and do business with NOCs, Governments, financiers and global E&P deal-makers and decision-makers.

Whether you are looking to buy, sell or farmout E&P deals, expand into new areas, find new partners, meet other industry movers and shakers, or just stay on top of the industry, APPEX is the place to be.

  • Meet the Right People: The key forum for networking and international deal development, carefully designed to let you meet, discuss and negotiate deals with global decision makers.
  • Hear what’s going on: Explore a programme of regional and topical speakers to keep you on top of worldwide trends and discovers; including finance forum, prospect forums, and the international pavilion.
  • Buy and Sell Deals: Connect with buyers, properties and prospects from around the globe – find the next deal first.
  • All under one roof: Your one-stop shop for global upstream opportunities.

Over two days, attendees will explore current and future trends in international business, new oil and gas hotspots, and discover and debate dozens of upcoming prospects from countries including:

Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia-Herzegovinia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgystan, Lebanon, Macedonia, Mongolia, Montenegro, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, plus some Mediterranean Countries (Cyprus, Italy, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Jordan).

All this takes place in a relaxed, friendly environment that has been carefully designed for maximum networking, allowing attendees to buy, sell and trade prospects and properties, find new strategic partners and clients, and stay one step ahead of the competition.
