Abu Dhabi, UAE
An unprecedented number of opportunities for Minister-to-global business leader strategic dialogue, along with a record number of expert submissions on a wide range of industry challenges and trends, will see the world’s energy leaders converge on the UAE capital for the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) 2017, later this year.
Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE; hosted by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC); and supported by the UAE Ministry of Energy, the Abu Dhabi Chamber, and the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, ADIPEC will take place from 13 to 16 November 2017, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).
The premier meeting place for energy ministers and C-level executives from the world’s oil and gas giants, ADIPEC 2017 will convene under the theme: ‘Forging Ties, Driving Growth.’ It is expected there will be more than 45 ministerial and CEO sessions, up from 25 a year earlier, cementing Abu Dhabi’s leadership status in the global energy industry.
Ali Khalifa Al Shamsi, Al Yasat CEO and ADIPEC 2017 Chairman, said: “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 (SPE), sets the international standard for the exchange of best-practice 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.
Christopher Hudson, President – Global Energy at dmg events, said: “Driving growth in a volatile industrial sector can be challenging at the best of times. ADIPEC 2017,
