The Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) will now take place online from 9-12 November 2020.
The organiser, dmg events, with partner the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), took the decision to go virtual after a directive from Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism stating that large events cannot take place.
Christopher Hudson, dmg events global energy president, says that the ‘concentrated and abridged’ virtual conference will ensure that the industry and the community can still discuss and share the learnings of the past year and address the key challenges.
The ADIPEC Awards 2020, which celebrates ten years this year, will be presented in an interactive virtual awards show in November 2020.
‘Despite the global challenge of COVID-19, we are delighted the ADIPEC strategic and technical conferences will take place virtually this year, enabling leaders from across the oil and gas industry to come together to share ideas and connect on a range of key industry trends, challenges, and opportunities,’ says Omar Suwaina Al Suwaidi, Chairman of ADIPEC.
ADIPEC 2021 will take place from 8-11 November 2021 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
