Dear Madam, Dear Sir,

On behalf of Jean-Claude Depail, President of GIE, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 11th GIE Annual Conference in Venice, Italy on 23 and 24 May 2013. The conference will be co-hosted by SNAM, the major Italian gas infrastructure operator.

Take the opportunity to meet other key gas players and discuss the most recent energy topics and latest news on gas infrastructure developments in Venice, one of the most beautiful cities in Italy.

This year’s conference will gather again top level representatives from the European Institutions, regulatory authorities, international organizations and the natural gas industry. More than 350 participants attended the last edition. We are convinced that the 11th Annual Conference takes place at a crucial time for a high-level discussion on where today’s energy policy is going and to define the important role of natural gas, the infrastructure and new developments in the gas business.
