Further expanding its commitment to provide the pan-Asian oil community with greater market intelligence and insight, Platts, the leading independent provider of information and benchmark prices for the commodities and energy markets, announced it has acquired the Asia Pacific Petroleum Conference (APPEC), the leading Asian oil conference from Ace Conferences and Events.
APPEC serves as a focal point for the sharing of ideas and business networking for the Asian and global oil trading community. By way of this acquisition, Platts will leverage its existing conference expertise to increase the visibility of the Conference to a global audience, attracting additional attendees while bringing a deeper and more global level of thought leadership to the program.
Since the inaugural event in 1985, APPEC has grown to become one of Asia’s most important oil industry events. The conference, held annually in Singapore, has a proven track record in providing industry insights and reinforcing Singapore’s position as Asia’s oil trading hub by securing industry leaders and international practitioners to share their expertise and network.
Platts has been at the forefront of helping develop Singapore’s reputation as a hub for commodities benchmarks. APPEC joining Platts will enhance the conference to deepen the insights and audience the oil community has come to expect from APPEC in the Asia-Pacific and Middle East regions.
