GameChanger ─ #LNGinBC2015 ─ highlights Natural Gas Week
Starting today, British Columbia’s natural gas sector will be featured at the third annual international liquefied natural gas (LNG) conference.
As part of the event, the introduction of the GameChanger Youth Expo will be a major highlight of this years’ conference.
GameChanger is a new, dynamic competition providing students of all ages an opportunity to showcase their creative-thinking skills to delegates attending British Columbia’s annual flagship LNG event. Over 1,600 students from throughout the province will participate in 12 competitions linked to energy, technology and trades.[sam id=”15″ codes=”true”]Challenges will take place on the tradeshow floor of the conference in Vancouver, Oct. 14-16. Work BC’s Find Your Fit and LNG-Buy BC also will have a presence at the conference, which is expected to have over 3,000 participants.
Over the last three years, the conference has become a key part of the government’s work to promote British Columbia’s growth potential in natural gas to global markets. Thousands of jobs and business ventures have been linked to the industry for over 50 years.
GameChanger and the LNG Conference are taking place in British Columbia during Natural Gas Week, Oct. 11-17, 2015. Updates from the event, as well as facts about natural gas sector, can be found online by following @BCJobsPlan and the hashtag #LNGinBC2015.
