ABU DHABI, 16th July, 2017 (WAM) -- World energy leaders will converge in the UAE capital for the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, Adipec 2017, to discuss an unprecedented number of opportunities for strategic dialogue, along with a record number of expert submissions on a wide range of industry challenges and trends.
Held under the patronage of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and hosted by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, ADNOC, Adipec will take place from 13th to 16th November at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. The event is supported by the UAE Ministry of Energy, the Abu Dhabi Chamber, and the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority.
Ali Khalifa Al Shamsi, CEO of Al Yasat and Chairman of Adipec 2017, noted, "Abu Dhabi has always served as an international gathering place for the energy world’s best and brightest. But, this year, Adipec is shifting gears to facilitate additional ministerial and C-level executive networking. We believe that this annual event is where global energy strategies are proposed and agreed each year." The Adipec Conference Programme, organised in collaboration with the Society of Petroleum Engineers, sets the international standard for the exchange of best practices and operational excellence in the world of energy, with all technical abstract submissions put through a rigorous evaluation process by the Technical Programme Committee. There have been more than 3,000 technical abstract submissions this year, with more than half submitted from outside the UAE.
More than 10,000 delegates, 2,200 exhibiting companies, 900 speakers, and over 100,000 visitors from 135 countries, are expected to gather for Adipec 2017, breaking the event’s previous records in international participation.
