Adipec set to be the largest show yet
The large presence of NOCs (National Oil Companies), IOCs (International Oil Companies), super major EPC contractors, consortium leaders, service companies, technology providers, international manufacturers along with engineering contractors, trading companies and consultants from across six continents on the floor make Adipec an all-in-one solution for those doing business in the industry.
No other event brings together ministers, royalty, C-level executives, engineers and business energy professionals under one roof.
Adipec plays host to more than 45,000 leading industry executives who come together in Abu Dhabi for 4 days of interaction to determine the future of the international energy industry.
The international audience attending Adipec reinforces the fact that the world is looking towards GCC countries (Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, UAE, Bahrain and Oman) to lead the way in energy exploration, development and investment and Adipec is the platform of choice for regional players to show case their projects, establish new relationships and strengthen trade and business ties across the globe.
Fully supported by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and the UAE Ministry of Energy, Adipec is honoured to receive patronage from royalty and endorsements from governments, ministers and associations.
What makes Adipec the complete oil and gas exhibition in the world is quality, content and global representation (higher participation of IOC’s, NOC’s and National Pavillions than any other event).
Adipec 2010 is set to be the largest show to date with all exhibition space sold out eight months prior to the event. With 17% more space on offer this year, the number of exhibitors has grown to over 1,600.
A number of key industry players have signed up to participate in Adipec 2010, from NOCs and IOCs to oilfield service companies offering a variety of innovative technology and services across all sectors of the industry. Exhibitors will showcase the very latest in exploration & production, processing, refining, storage and transportation.
Now in its fourteenth year, the event will encompasses the whole space of the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) with over 31,000m2 of exhibiting space indoors and an extensive new outdoor area for equipment and machinery.
The Adipec Conference is held over four days parallel to the exhibition and functions as a meeting place to discuss and debate the latest and most innovative technological solutions available in the oil and gas industry. Over 250 industry leaders join together to present a comprehensive programme of technical and panel sessions at the conference.
Hifazat Ahmad, event director of Adipec 2010, said: “We have seen a significant increase in the interest shown from new companies in exhibiting at this year’s Adipec, over and above the already confirmed existing client base, reinforcing that it has become a must-attend event for the global industry.
“Adipec is now the second largest event for the oil and gas industry in the world, the largest outside of America, and the Middle East continues to strengthen its position as the business hub for emerging economies.”
A key factor to the growth of Adipec is in its location, which acts as a gateway between the east and west. Of the 1,050 billion barrels of proven crude oil reserves, the region accounts for about 31% of total world production, and about 50% of exports. The energy sector is estimated to spend US$ 800 billion in the region in the coming decade. Abu Dhabi holds 98.2 billion barrels and almost 5.8 trillion cubic metres of the world’s natural gas.
