The UAE is set to host the year's most anticipated networking and exhibition event for the energy industry, its organisers have claimed.
According to dmg :: events, the upcoming Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) is expected to generate more than AED4 billion in industry deals this year.
Taking place from November 1st-4th at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, the event will bring together over 40,000 regional and international professionals, including 1,600 exhibitors from 59 countries.
In addition, dmg :: events stated that exhibitors have been particularly quick to fight for prominent placement this year, with the event totally selling out eight months in advance.
The company revealed that a survey of 1,300 local and international respondents - a majority of whom are key decision makers overseeing average mean budgets of more than $2 million - revealed that 95 per cent return for each ADIPEC event due to its high value to their companies.
Hifazat Ahmad, event director of ADIPEC, said: "With the Middle East increasingly viewed as the world's energy hub, there is tremendous demand to be a part of ADIPEC. Our latest research conclusively shows that ADIPEC is considered a 'must attend' event on the global oil and gas industry calendar."
