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.
The theme for 2019 was “Comparing Lucrative Energy Projects”. We welcomed 69 expert speakers and a record number of 421 delegates joined us over the two days. Attendees enjoyed 17 off the record panel discussions on topics from across the energy value chain and 8 hours of networking including three private dinners.
We would like to thank all our speakers, sponsors and delegates for making Mexico Assembly 2019 such a success

The Oil and Gas Council provided a world-class platform from which to learn about the Mexican energy industry. They brought together key decision makers from both the private and public sectors. You met only C-level people operating in the Mexican energy industry as well as senior representatives from global financial institutions and the Mexican government. It is a fantastic platform for all those connected to the Mexican energy sector to engage in meaningful discussions and learn about the latest trends impacting Mexico’s energy industry.David Chelich

As always a very good seminar with the right insight and approaches to the different subjects. Not to mention all the organization running seamlessly.Luis Villalobos
Great event; focused panels of relevant topics with experts from a good cross-section of government, investors and industrial companies. The limited number of guests makes it great for effective networking.Gabriel Cerdio Gudiño
It was a great couple of days with spot-on topics and great attendance. The Mexico Assembly was well organized with a great selection of topics and moderators. Networking opportunities during breaks were very fruitful since a lot of people flew into Mexico City.Alex Fabrega

Meet the Speakers
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.
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.
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.
