Taking place at the University of Strathclyde Technology and Innovation Centre on Friday 25 September, this year’s event marks the first conference to be hosted by the newly-branded Scottish Energy Association (SEA) and Scottish Energy News.

No stranger to events and what gets people talking, fatBuzz is delighted to be part of a conference which, this year in particular, promises plenty of lively debate.

Gordon White, Managing Director of fatBuzz, commented on the sponsorship:

“fatBuzz has a long history of supporting and sponsoring events, we are pleased to continue that as the title sponsor for the 2015 UK Shale Energy Conference.  We are delighted to continue our relationship with Scottish Energy Association in this manner.

“We were privileged to be part of the Scottish Energy Association rebrand earlier this year, and we see this sponsorship as an opportunity to be involved with a fast moving industry once again in what promises to be a very rewarding and insightful day for all those attending.”
