Stephen Ballard Managing Director at BCM Public Relations runs the main media conference at IPTC in Doha, Qatar.
Speaking at the press conference was Saad Sherida Al Kaabi, Director, Oil & Gas Ventures, Qatar Petroleum, Andrew Swiger, Senior Vice President, ExxonMobil, Dato’ Mohamad Idris Mansor, Director, PETRONAS and other senior executives from the petroleum industry in the Middle East.
Record media coverage was generated from the event with broadcasts from five TV stations, extensive editorial within both the national and regional newspapers together with features in the Oil & Gas specialist media and websites. Social media once again played a major part in informing both the media and delegates/visitors of key news issues throughout the three day event.
Jeremy Vickerman who managed the event said,” We were extremely pleased with the engagement from the media at this event with over 100 journalists attending. IPTC Doha follows our PR management of LNG17, Houston and WGC2012, Kuala Lumpur and demonstrates our deep domain knowledge of the petroleum industry something which benefits our client base on a day to day basis”.
