Helium Super Summit 2023

Navigating Through a Period of Uncertainty

NOTICE: Less than 50 tickets remain to attend our Helium Super Summit 2023.

Four major global shortages in 18 years, and yet the greatest challenge facing the helium business in 2023/24 is the uncertainty that hangs over the market and its array of end-users.

The source of that uncertainty – and perhaps the enduring Helium Shortage 4.0 – is the terse geopolitical climate the world is engulfed in. Sourcing, shipping and supplying helium where it’s needed has arguably never been more challenging, or rewarding.

This new ‘gold rush’ has given rise to innovative helium extraction and production, with exploration activity on five continents. But at a time when demand growth is expected to accelerate, the supply chain is crunched and helium hotspots continue to come to the fore, the same cloud of uncertainty still hangs over this invaluable business.

All of which means there are a host of questions to be answered as the global helium business and its customers are Steering Through Uncertainty.

What does the big picture look like in helium for the next five years?
What next for global helium markets?
What role for new helium exploration, and where are there tangible ‘shovels in the ground’?
How hot is the helium demand heatmap, and where will gaps need to be filled?
Where are the opportunities emerging in equipment and technologies?

Expect to see all of these questions answered as gasworld delivers Helium Super Summit 2023 from October 30 – November 1 at The Westin Galleria Hotel in Houston, Texas.

The ultimate gathering of the global helium business, loaded with unrivalled speakers and insights, 2.5 days of quality networking opportunities, and a toolkit of knowledge to inform your investment in helium and its services.
