London Showcase and Lions' Lair

The popular London Showcase and Lions' Lair is back for another year. A joint event between IGEM's London, Southern & Eastern Section and The Pipeline Industries Guild this event provides a great opportunity to network with colleagues across the industry and to hear the latest innovations. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear a keynote speech from Mark Horsley, CEO at Northern Gas Networks, with a presentation entitled Northern Soul. This will follow the Lions' Lair. 

Up to five contestants will enter the Lions' Lair where each of the contenders will have four minutes to present their new innovation followed by four minutes of questions by the 'Lions'.  The competition winner will be presented with the coveted Tommy McNicholas Shield.

We're seeking real world examples of how your innovation has improved gas industry operations and had a positive impact on the sector.

The judging panel includes:

  • Chris Bielby, Director of Industry Liaison at SGN
  • Chris Clarke, Future Strategy Director at Wales & West Utilities
  • James Harrison, Head of Operations for London at Cadent


If you would like to present your latest ideas and innovations to an esteemed industry panel please enter the competition by submitting a 250 word extract on a subject or project relevant to the gas industry in which you have been personally involved. Submissions need to be made to and the deadline date is 18 January 2019.
