Adipec sees strong growth this year


The 2019 edition of the Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (Adipec) is set to confirm the event’s status as the world’s leading oil and gas exhibition and conference, with increased participation from major global oil companies.

Over 30 national oil companies (NOCs) have confirmed their participation at Adipec, which will take place in Abu Dhabi, from November 11-14, up from 27 last year, while 17 international oil companies (IOCs) have confirmed their attendance, up from 15 in 2018.

The latest edition of Adipec is also on track to host over 145,000 people during the event’s four days, from 136 countries. About 11,000 conference delegates are expected to attend the expanded conference programme of 166 sessions.

Demonstrating the increased appeal of Adipec among oil and gas professionals, the number of technical abstracts submitted for consideration has surged from 2,829 to 3,652. The number of entries for the prestigious Adipec Awards has also jumped sharply, from just over 450 to more than 600.

Meanwhile, Adipec’s exhibition will welcome over 2,200 international companies across 160,000 gross square metres of floorspace, with 29 exhibiting country pavilions. The exhibition will include offshore and marine industries at a unique waterfront exhibition that boasts ship, vessels and a Jack up barge display.

"We have worked consistently to expand the scope of Adipec in recent years, from an event that catered primarily to the upstream industries, to one that includes the full range of upstream, midstream and downstream sectors, and that gives us a unique position when compared with other, similar conferences or exhibitions internationally," said Christopher Hudson, President – dmg events, which organises Adipec.
