The 23rd World Petroleum Congress Organizing Committee has announced the launch of the Innovation Zone, a captivating additional feature on the exhibition floor of the Congress, which will take place in person in Houston from December 5-9, 2021 at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
The Innovation Zone, presented by ConocoPhillips, will provide startup companies an international platform to showcase innovative practices and solutions to combat the current challenges of the energy industry and bring awareness to progressive energy solutions available on the market today.
“For more than a century, innovation has enabled our industry to keep pace with the growing demand for safe energy,” said W. L. (Bill) Bullock, Jr., EVP, and CFO, ConocoPhillips. “ConocoPhillips is pleased to be the Innovation Zone presenting sponsor, where companies will showcase innovations that can propel our industry’s purposeful journey through the energy transition and into the future.”
Thirty-two selected startup companies and individuals will pitch their innovative energy tools, technologies, and practices on stage to Congress delegates and participants, who will then pick one to receive the Energy Innovator Award.
The Innovation Zone is open to all for-profit energy companies, private entities, and individuals operating as independent contractors.
