Mexico Assembly

 April 3 – 4, 2019

St Regis, MEXICO CITY

THE MOST SENIOR ENERGY EXECUTIVE MEETING IN MEXICO: Upstream, Midstream & Power Investment

What is Mexico Assembly?

The Mexico Assembly is the most senior off the record energy executive platform in Mexico. Every year in Mexico City, over 350 Heads of Mexico, CEOs, CFOs, BD VPs and investors gather for two full days of behind-closed-doors networking and honest informal discussions. With representatives from 18 countries and an audience made up of over 65% VP level and above, government officials and investors – this is the unmissable Who’s Who platform in Mexico.

What makes Mexico Assembly different? 

 The theme for 2019 is “Comparing Lucrative Energy Projects” and you can expect 85 speakers; 21 off-record CEO-driven panels; ample 1-2-1 networking opportunities; an analysis of energy rounds and post- AMLO challenges and opportunities; fuel retail projects and investors’ opinions on the most profitable infrastructure and E&P projects in the country.

Can you afford to miss out?

Meet the Speakers

Niels Versfeld

The biggest challenge in Mexico is the same for anywhere in the energy industry, how do we provide the sustainable energy people are demanding in an environment where prices are depressed and volatile.

Jim Chisholm

The Canadian industry is facing some challenges in recent years, so you may see more Canadian companies show up in Mexico if the climate is investor-friendly.

Alejandro Moreno Benitez

We really believe that tender mechanisms and the energy reform have been very positive for the development of renewable energies in Mexico.

Alfonso Araiza

I believe Mexico continues to be a good option to invest in 2019. Despite the uncertainty related to the installation of a new administration, the needs, and hence the opportunities across the value chain remain.

Diogo Pais dos Santos

Mexico is a market of over 120 million people and very rich in natural resources, with strong companies, either on the private sector or the public one so it is an important country from an international point of view.
