The annual AEGPL Congress, which took place in June in Lisbon, Portugal, featured 1,200 attendees from the propane industry, according to AEGPL.

The event, hosted by the European LP Gas Association, is the biggest of its kind in Europe. The Congress was divided into an exhibition area with 130 booths and a conference area where discussion panels were held.

The panels focused on challenges and opportunities for the industry. Topics discussed included the role of renewables, new areas for LP gas, the impact of public policy on the industry and the role of LP gas in communities, according to AEGPL.
