More than 100 corporate CEOs and government ministers, over 2,200 exhibiting companies and thousands of delegates from across the world will gather in Abu Dhabi for the next four attending the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (Adipec).
The world’s leading annual oil and gas industry event – the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (Adipec) – opens its doors in the UAE capital today (November 12), with strong growth in the number of companies, senior decision-makers, and expert professionals booking to attend the 2018 edition. 
Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE; hosted by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc); and supported by the UAE Ministry of Energy and Industry, the Abu Dhabi Chamber, and the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, Adipec will take place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (Adnec) till November 15.
With exhibition and conference sessions running across four days, Adipec 2018 will welcome more than 2,200 exhibiting companies, an increase of 8 per cent compared with last year. This includes 42 major national oil companies (NOCs) and international oil companies (IOCs), up 23 per cent on 2017, while 29 countries are hosting businesses on national pavilions, an increase of 16 per cent.
In a further demonstration of top-level support, more than 100 corporate CEOs and government ministers will speak during Adipec’s strategic conference, which is an increase of 25 per cent compared with the previous edition.
“We have seen a very solid increase in bookings for Adipec this year, which reflects the industry’s current positive outlook, and our efforts to ensure that both the exhibition and the conference are directly relevant to current industry concerns,” said Jean-Philippe Cossé, vice president, dmg::events Middle East.
“Companies of all sizes, right across the oil and gas value chain, come to Adipec to find new opportunities – many bringing their core leadership team to Abu Dhabi here to talk business and - engage in bi-lateral trade,” Cossé said.
As a platform for the global oil and gas industry to engage in dialogue, conduct business, and source the creative solutions and strategies that will shape the industry in the years ahead, Adipec’s landmark conference programme continues to evolve in line with emerging trends and challenges.
In a major new initiative, three invitation-only closed-door C-suite round tables will offer industry leaders a private forum to engage in open dialogue, with the purpose of embracing change and putting in place strategies to help them navigate critically important challenges. Hosted in strategic partnership with global consultancy groups Accenture, PwC, and AT Kearney, the round tables will lead to published outcomes after Adipec.
Other new and revised conference sessions include 10 upstream and downstream business leader sessions, two CEO finance breakfast briefings, six inclusion and diversity in energy sessions, 11 C-suite dialogues, and nine downstream technical sessions.
For working professionals, the technical conference programme will host 111 sessions, with a record 748 abstracts accepted for presentation during the event. These were chosen from 2,829 submissions, coming from 541 companies in 58 countries.  - TradeArabia News Service
