More than 1,500 companies from 40 countries will display the latest technologies in the areas of water, energy and environment, at the upcoming Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (Wetex 2014) in Dubai.
The 16th edition of the event will be held from April 14 to 16 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre on a display area of 47,230 sq m featuring 28 national pavilions.
This was announced by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) at a press conference held today in Dubai.
Wetex 2014 coincides with major activities related to the energy sector, including the World Green Economy Summit, SmarTech Shopper for consumers and Green Week from April 14 to 20.
“I am pleased to announce that preparations for Wetex 2014 have been completed 19 days before the start of the exhibition, which will coincide with other activities related to energy and environmental sustainability in the region and around the world,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, vice chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, MD & CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa), founder of Wetex and chairman of the Higher Organising Committee.
“Over the past 16 years, Wetex has evolved into a major event that complements the biggest exhibitions on Dubai’s calendar. It also represents a valuable addition to the Emirate that strives for excellence in the field of energy, adopting the latest environmentally-sustainable solutions at all levels.
“We have organised a significant number of specialised events held on the sidelines of Wetex, such as Green Week, which is being held for the first time from 14-20 April, to raise awareness of environmental sustainability and conservation of electricity and water. DEWA will also launch for the first time SmarTech Shopper, an open platform for consumers to encourage the responsible use of eco-friendly products and household appliances to reduce consumption of electricity and water,” Al Tayer added.
“Since its inception in 1999, Wetex has served as an international platform that offers plenty of opportunities to manufacturers, investors, companies, commercial representatives to display the latest technologies in fields of water, energy, environment, oil & gas and other relevant industries,” Al Tayer continued.
“The exhibition contributes to the establishment of a global platform and combines elements including Sustainability, Mobility and Opportunities, which support the main theme of Expo 2020, which is ‘Connecting minds, Creating the future’ to create partnerships for global innovation and sustainable development.’”
