The sixth installment of the “Women's Global Leadership Conference in Energy & Technology” (WGLC) will
take place in Houston, TX USA 3 – 4 November 2009. We held the inaugural international WGLC in Dubai,
UAE on 24 May 2009, with great success! This important conference is organized by Gulf Publishing
Company and hosted by its two energy publications, World Oil and Hydrocarbon Processing, along with its
sister publication, Petroleum Economist.

The Women’s Global Leadership Conference is the largest women’s event in the industry, and the only
one that focuses on discussing the industry’s key environmental, economic, professional
development and human capital issues in one setting. This means that attendees leave with an
increased understanding of the full range of pertinent issues and an increased ability to be change agents in
our industry.

The first year for WGLC, was in 2005 and there were 250 registrants and 3 corporate sponsors. The 2008
conference held in Houston attracted over 850 delegates from corporations, government and other leaders
in the industry from throughout the globe. This conference had 11 corporate sponsors, and over 20 supporting
organizations. We anticipate the 2009 Houston conference to draw 1000 delegates with the continuous
sponsorship and encouragement of corporations and people such as you!

Sponsoring companies benefit in a number of ways:
   • Recognition as a thought leader addressing issues that are critical to the future of our industry
   • Opportunities to promote your company brand through a multitude of communication vehicles
       (PR, print, advertising, web, onsite) to the largest audience of women in the industry
   • Opportunities to meet and network with leaders in the industry by being a part of the Advisory Board
       and speaking agenda

We invite you to again partner with us on this tremendous event. Please note that we have added additional
benefits to our sponsorship packages. Thank you for your consideration.
