The region’s largest oil and gas event, which launched in 1984, is marking 30 years as a world-leading energy event and will welcome an estimated 60,000 visitors from 127 countries at ADNEC from 10-13 November.

Now in its 17th edition, the conference was re-launched last year as an annual event. Organiser DMG Events has grown it by 25% this year.

Regarded as one of the top-three energy events in the world, the conference will host 16 National Oil Companies (NOCs) and 17 International Oil Companies (IOCs), and will address the theme of ‘Challenges and Opportunities for the Next 30 Years’.

The event is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, and will be hosted by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).

Humaid Al Dhaheri, acting group CEO of ADNEC, said: "We are excited to be hosting this milestone edition of ADIPEC. The event has grown into the most important energy events outside of North America, and that is testament its organisers and sponsors."

The news follows other recent energy event wins for the region. Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, including the World Future Energy Summit will welcome 30,000 future energy and clean technology professionals in January. Earlier this month, Abu Dhabi was confirmed as the host of the World Energy Congress 2019, which will take place at ADNEC.

Dhaheri added: "ADIPEC, together with next year’s World Future Energy Summit and the recent announcement about World Energy Congress in 2019, demonstrates that our facility is providing a gateway to the energy future. And it continues to grow as a meeting place, where leaders from all corners of our energy world can exchange ideas and knowledge to progress this critically important sector."
