Due to its abundant resources and infrastructure, Mexico has always set the standard for other Latin American countries in terms of development, potential, and capabilities, and will continue to do so. This is exactly why the most important oil event in Latin America is held in our country. I am honored to share that the Energy & Commerce team has collaborated with the Mexican Oil Conference (CMP, by its acronym in Spanish) for nine years, and I am confident that we will continue to work together for many years to come.

Year after year, the organizing committee and associations take on the task of choosing the most suitable location to meet the demands of an event of this scale. This year, the 14th edition of the CMP will be held in the City of León, Guanajuato, from 19 to 22 June.

The CMP is a well-rounded event, made up of round tables, technical and highly specialized conferences, exhibitions, networking and discussion panels, but it also hosts big surprises that make it an impeccable experience. The industrial exhibition is also very crucial, which will have more than 700 stands and more than 200 companies in the sector. In more than 18 thousand square meters, they will present the main technological innovations for the hydrocarbon exploration and exploitation industries. On top of this, I consider the fact that the most distinguished experts in the oil industry of the world coincide in the same space, for a determined time, to be of utmost significance. This year, the attendance of approximately 8,000 visitors is expected, including 1,200 speakers from various parts of the world, who will generate an economic income of more than $120 million pesos for the entity.

I would like to extend my appreciation to the organizing associations (AMGE, AIPM, CIPM, AMGP, and SPE), to the attendees and participants, to the inhabitants of the City of León, Guanajuato and, of course, to Governor Diego Sinhue Rodríguez Vallejo, for allowing us to celebrate this event, essential for the development of the oil sector in Mexico and the world. I am sure that this year, like all others, the CMP will go down in history as the key platform for forging alliances and defining opportunities in favor of the country’s energy future.
