One of the marquee annual events in the global energy industry, Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) will be held virtually this year between November 9 and 12, 2020.

The event which is organized by dmg events will be hosted and supported by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).

ADIPEC is an annual global industry event that attracts world energy leaders to discuss and debate the future of global energy markets, geopolitics, and technology. Held for more than 35 years, ADIPEC underpins Abu Dhabi as a global energy hub in bringing together the best of minds at a government and industry leadership level including senior academics, technology innovators and financial leaders.

The decision to organize the event virtually follows a directive from Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism that events should not take place in light of the COVID-19 restrictions. The next full in-person annual exhibition and conferences will take place from 8th to 11th November 2021.

ADIPEC Strategic and Technical Conferences will continue to offer thought leadership that will frame the future oil and gas landscape and connects global organizations to shape the industry’s future.
