Adnec ExCel London to stage 2 key ME events
Abu Dhabi, October 18, 2010
Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company's (Adnec) ExCeL London, the UK capital’s largest exhibition centre, will stage two key Abu Dhabi linked events next week.
The European Future Energy Forum (Efef) takes place from October 19 to 21 at ExCeL, and is organised by Turret Middle East in association with Masdar. The Efef is part of the Future Energy series of events that includes the World Future Energy Summit held annually in Abu Dhabi.
On October 20, ExCeL will also host the Abu Dhabi Investment Forum - created to highlight the trade and investment opportunities the UAE capital is making available to the global investment community. This event is organised by the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development with Institutional Investor.
“The Efef perfectly illustrates how the very best Abu Dhabi events can be exported around the world using Adnec’s global network of venues,” stated Simon Horgan, Adnec Group CEO.
“I am equally delighted that the organisers of Abu Dhabi Economic Forum have chosen to take advantage of Adnec’s investment in the facilities at ExCeL and relocate the upcoming 3rd Abu Dhabi Investment Forum to our venue in the UK capital.”
ExCeL London has been owned by Adnec since 2008 and has cemented its status in the events industry, picking up 12 major awards and expanding significantly.
