IN APRIL, the Press and Journal and Munro’s Travel Group of Aberdeen launched their first Middle East oil&gas conference and exhibition initiative, and we are pleased to report that this is attracting considerable interest.
Following the huge success of the partnership’s OTC Houston and ONS Stavanger ventures over the years, the belief is that the package, which is built around Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference (ADIPEC), will rapidly become as important as the Offshore Technology Conference and Offshore Northern Seas missions operated for more than 25 years.
As if any Energy readers need reminding, ADIPEC has become one of the largest oil&gas events in the world and, this year, it will be staged on November 3-6.
The biggest ADIPEC yet, the trade-show element will cover more than 85,000sq m of indoor exhibition space.
Abu Dhabi is an oil&gas producer in its own right and, as one of the United Arab Emirates, is located at the heart of the Middle East petroleum industry, with Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran among its near neighbours.
