Conferences Overview


The Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) is positioned at the forefront of influencing decisions on the future direction of the worldwide energy mix and remains the world’s premier meeting place for government ministers, thought leaders, NOC and IOC CEOs. A showcase for technological innovation and a forum for overall industry excellence and knowledge sharing. ADIPEC is the central point for the global energy industry, where decisions are reached by business and government, shaping the short and long-term future of this vital sector.

Taking place from 9 -12 November 2020, the ADIPEC conferences, drive discussions that enable industry experts to exchange initiatives on energy mega-trends, policy formation and geopolitical factors that shape the future of the energy sector.

As globally demand for energy continues to grow, the need for the industry to adapt and change increases, ADIPEC’s 2020 Strategic Programme creates the fundamentals to embrace these changes and shape its evolution.

Covering topics spanning the value chain, this all-encompassing programme provides insights that will change the way leaders do business to ensure sustainable, climate conscious growth and relevance to the future energy mix. From shifting industry dynamics, digital innovation and disruptive technology, finance and investment opportunities to transformational organisational agendas focused on people, talent and new strategic partnerships, ADIPEC’s programme brings forth unprecedented dialogue, insights and thought leadership from across the industry.

The ADIPEC Conferences provide the fundamental knowledge blocks for a new era of oil and gas, connect the global energy industry and set the foundations for new partnerships and ecosystems of the future.

Last year we were talking about ideas - this year we are talking about applications. Companies are coming and presenting how drones, artificial intelligence, robotics and oilfield operations contribute to saving and bring the cost per barrel down.
