More than 2000 exhibitors and 8500 delegates are set to attend world’s most influential oil and gas exhibition and conference

The 19th edition of the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC 2016) takes place from 7-10 November at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC). Held under the patronage of the President of the United Arab Emirates, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and organised by the Global Energy division of dmg events, ADIPEC places itself as the global meeting point for oil and gas professionals. Standing as one of the world’s top energy events, and the largest in the Middle East and North Africa, ADIPEC is preparing to welcome world energy leaders, government officials, decision makers, and more than 100,000 oil and gas trade professionals from 125 countries. The event offers the opportunity for these visitors 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.

“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.

The distinguished ADIPEC Conference Programme, organised in collaboration with the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), will commence with a prestigious Opening Ceremony, including keynote presentations and three Global Business Leader sessions, which will invite CEOs of the world’s oil giants to the stage to shed light on critical industry topics, including a world outlook for the oil industry, the developing role of gas and LNG, and effective leadership strategies.

The 2016 edition of the ADIPEC Conference Programme will also feature two global ministerial dialogues, eight panel sessions, three breakfast sessions, and three luncheon sessions, and 106 technical sessions.

The exclusive VIP Programme is also back stronger than ever, as well as the dedicated Offshore, Marine, and Heavy Equipment Zone. Meanwhile, eight Offshore & Marine conference sessions will look at industry-specific topics ranging from developing offshore oil and gas fields to new technologies and enhancing safety.

Demonstrating its commitment to meeting emerging industry requirements, ADIPEC 2016 will launch the inaugural edition of the ‘Security in Energy’ exhibition and conference, while returning to ADIPEC 2016 will be the ADIPEC Awards, which celebrate innovation, best practice, and excellence in energy for people, companies, projects and initiatives in the oil and gas industry.

Challenging the perception that the oil and gas industry is a male-dominated environment, the official ADIPEC Women in Energy series will give attendees the opportunity of meeting with peers and discussing the future role of women in the energy arena, with a full day gathering on Wednesday, 9 November.

Young ADIPEC, the hugely successful programme designed to engage the younger generation in the oil and gas industry, is back for its third year.

ADIPEC has a longstanding track record of bringing together globally celebrated luminaries and experts to discuss challenges and opportunities in the energy sector. The landmark event is anchored on the international presence of some of the world’s leading petroleum producing countries, as well as emerging markets, underlining its position as the global meeting place for industry professionals.
