The Sixth International Conference and Exhibition on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG-6) will be held April 6 through April 11, 1980, at the International Conference Hall in Kyoto, Japan.
Sponsored by the International Gas Union, London, England, the Institute of Gas Technology, Chicago, 111., and the International Institute of Refrigeration, Paris, France, the conference will bring together speakers and exhibitors worldwide to present developments in LNG technology and trade since the close of LNG-5, held in Dusseldorf, Germany, in August 1977. That conference attracted 1,600 registrants from 38 countries, and 120 exhibitors from 13 countries.
LNG-6 co-chairmen are E. Giorgis, vice president of the International Gas Union and delegate administrator of Compagnie Industrielle et Commerciale du Gaz, Switzerland, and Hiroshi Anzai, president of the Japan Gas Association and chairman of Tokyo Gas Company, Ltd. Mr. Anzai also serves as chairman of the LNG-6 Organizing Comittee.
Host of LNG-6 is the Japan LNG Congress, an organization created especially for the purpose, whose 90 members represent the Japanese gas industry, education, research institutes, trade associations and industrial corporations, all concerned with LNG. Its general secretary is Yoshimitsu Shibasaki, vice president, the Japan Gas Association, 15-12, Toranomon 1-chome, Minato-ku, Tokyo, 105, Japan.
Kyoto, noted for its temples, gardens and ancient crafts, is located 283 miles from Tokyo and 26 miles from Osaka. Eleven Kyoto hotels have reserved 1,050 rooms to accommodate up to 1,920 guests attending LNG-6. Committees are now organizing the exhibition and technical program, and will issue a call for papers in November 1978.
