World energy leaders, government officials, decision makers, and more than 100 000 oil and gas trade professionals from 125 countries are gearing up to attend the world’s most influential event for the oil and gas industry, the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC 2016).
Preparations are underway as the UAE capital prepares to welcome thousands of movers and shakers in energy to address the imminent challenges and opportunities facing the petroleum sector, including the vital need to drive operational efficiency in a rapidly changing energy landscape.
Held under the patronage of the President of the United Arab Emirates, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, ADIPEC connects decision makers with technical experts, innovators, and thought leaders, serving as a catalyst for new ideas, policies, and technologies that drive energy sector progress.
The landmark energy event is hosted by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), and organised by the Global Energy division of dmg events.
More than 50 per cent of ADIPEC attendees are expected to have sole or joint purchasing authority, demonstrating the event’s position as a powerhouse for local, regional, and international business opportunities in energy.
“As the energy sector witnesses a transformation, businesses must adapt their strategies not only to survive today’s challenges, but also to create a resilient foundation for what tomorrow brings,” said Mr. Ali Khalifa Al Shamsi, CEO of Al Yasat Petroleum Operations Company and ADIPEC 2016 Chairman.
“Knowledge is key to unlocking the opportunities presented by the new energy landscape. As the global meeting place for oil and gas professionals, ADIPEC offers stakeholders access to real on-the-ground intelligence and information on the latest industry developments,” Mr. Al Shamsi added.
ADIPEC will host more than 2000 exhibiting companies, 8500 delegates, 700 speakers, and 25 international pavilions, including major oil producing countries, such as the US, Saudi Arabia, China, and Russia, as well as emerging markets, such as Indonesia, Malaysia, and Spain.
