Welcome to Miami and the 27th annual World LP Gas Forum!
I’ve been to the International Poultry Expo and the World Pork Expo and similar events with global attendance here in the United States, but the vast majority of attendees are always from this country. Not so here at the WLPGF. The World LP Gas Association has members in 130 countries and a good percentage of those are represented here at this event. But because it’s here in the United States this year, the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC) has a special presence to showcase new innovations for propane use in a variety of markets, including agriculture.
Alison Abbot, marketing and communications director for the World LP Gas Association, says the event moves around the globe each year. “It’s the first time since 2008 we’ve been in the United States, the last time was in Chicago,” said Abbot. Last year it was in London and next year it will be in Singapore.
Abbot says PERC is a very active member of the WLPGA and the work the organization is doing in promotion and research of new markets and innovations for propane is outstanding. “We work very closely with PERC,” she said. “What we do as the world association is we take what fellow associations like PERC in the United States do and act as a central hub to disseminate it out.”
