Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) 2023 opens today (Monday, October 2), bringing together the international energy industry.
ADIPEC 2023 will see more than 160,000 visitors from 164 countries attend its biggest edition ever.
Held under the patronage of UAE’s President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and hosted by ADNOC, ADIPEC will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) until Thursday, October 5.
The theme of the event is ‘Decarbonising. Faster. Together’. The exhibition programme covers energy-related technology, innovation, collaboration and digitalisation.
The show is taking place just seven weeks before the UAE hosts COP28, providing a platform to convene energy and related industries to align on the lower-carbon, high-growth future of energy.
Companies from across the energy ecosystem will showcase the innovations and technologies driving the industry’s journey to net zero, including direct air capture, carbon capture, utilisation and storage, green hydrogen electrolysers, power-to-x, artificial intelligence and the industrial internet of things, reported the state news agency, WAM.
Highlights of ADIPEC 2023
The ADIPEC Exhibition will enable visitors to connect with over 2,200 global companies across 16 exhibition halls and 30 country pavilions.
This year, the event also includes four specialised areas focused on facilitating cross-sector collaboration and game-changing partnerships: Decarbonisation Accelerator, Maritime & Logistics Zone, Digitalisation in Energy Zone, and Manufacturing & Industrialisation Exhibition & Conference, WAM reported.
The Maritime & Logistics Zone is located in the dedicated Marina Hall, which will also stage the Maritime & Logistics Technical and Strategic Conferences.
Visitors can also attend Innovation Sessions, where industry experts will share insights on new ways of thinking and working that are driving decarbonisation at scale and pace.
Split across three dedicated tracks – Decarbonisation, Maritime and Logistics, and Digitalisation in Energy – the sessions are designed to facilitate solution-orientated dialogue in a curated programme format.
They are supported by the Cross-Sector Co-Lab Programme, where visitors can explore the cross-industry partnerships that are accelerating the energy transition.
Christopher Hudson, President of dmg events, the event organiser, said the show has “something for everyone in the energy industry. Whether you are looking for insights on how to leverage digital technologies for greater operational efficiency, want to learn about the policies impacting the energy transition or find out about green finance and investment opportunities, ADIPEC is where to be”.
More than 1,600 speakers, including over 40 ministers and 120 c-suite executives from across the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas, will address more than 15,000 delegates in over 350 conference sessions.
They will share strategies and innovative ideas to accelerate collective, responsible action to future-proof energy.
