For another year, APGA's MSTTC and the APGA SIF's Operations Conference come together in one location for several days of informative sessions on marketing and operations. The annual APGA MSTTC provides exceptional speakers and presentations to help attendees increase the use of natural gas in their communities and the SIF Operations Conference focuses on pipeline safety and new technology for natural gas operations and pipeline safety. New in 2016, the two conferences are joined with the premier of the GPC, which will focus on the policy and politics affecting the natural gas end-use market. The three conferences are held concurrently for those who wish to attend all conferences' sessions.
