About the Northeast Forum

What: The 22nd Annual Northeast Forum is the premier event where 600+ of the Natural Gas Industry’s leaders gather in Boston for 3 days of networking, insights, & deal making.

Who: See who attended in 2016; the current attendee list is coming soon!

Why: Got an eye for networking? Networking is at the heart of the Forums. There are multiple opportunities to meet and connect with people through our scheduled networking activities and before/after/in-between sessions. It is hard NOT to meet people!
