The conference, which annually convenes energy ministers and C-level executives from the world’s oil and gas giants, is introducing global downstream technical sessions, set to drive the conversation on downstream expansion, diversification, technology innovation and R&D.

“ADIPEC 2017, the world’s most influential oil and gas exhibition and conference, is evolving to bring more event attendees fully into the realm of industry decision-making, from passive to active participation, and our new global downstream business leader sessions are testament to this progressive new approach to inclusion,” said Christopher Hudson, President – Global Energy, dmg events.

Under the theme ‘Forging Ties, Driving Growth,' the conference will feature 45 ministerial and CEO sessions, best practices and operational excellence in the world energy sector, and events such as the ADIPEC awards, Women In Industry Conference, Young ADIPEC, and a VIP conference programme for Middle East Petroleum Club members.

More than 10,000 delegates, 2,200 exhibiting companies, 900 speakers, and over 100,000 visitors from 135 countries are projected to gather in the UAE capital, breaking the event’s previous records in international participation.

"We believe that this annual event is where global energy strategies are proposed and agreed each year,” said Ali Khalifa Al Shamsi, Al Yasat CEO and ADIPEC 2017 Chairman.

The event is organized by the Global Energy division of dmg events, 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, the Abu Dhabi Chamber, and the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority.
