IPTC is a flagship, multi-disciplinary technical event which rotates annually between the Middle East and Asia. IPTC, one of the world's largest professional society based oil and gas conferences, is sponsored by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).

The sixth IPTC, to be held in Beijing, China will be hosted by China's largest oil and gas producer – China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) – and co-hosted by the world's largest non-governmental producer of oil and natural gas – Exxon Mobil Corporation. Over 5,000 participants from around the globe are expected to attend IPTC in Beijing, including influential industry leaders, professionals, as well as senior government officials and NGO representatives.

IPTC provides unprecedented opportunities for energy professionals to address technical and business issues that challenge oil and gas organisations operating in all parts of the world, and over-arching industry issues such as health, safety, and environment; security; competency and training.

The success of IPTC is based on the knowledge, capabilities and strengths of the participating industry leaders and the sponsoring societies' global membership, along with the spectrum of multi-disciplinary technical knowledge shared during the event.
