The ADIPEC Strategic and Technical Conference will take place virtually between November 9 and 12, 2020, DMG Events, the organiser of the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) has announced.
This follows a directive from Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism that events should not take place in light of Covid-19 restrictions. The next full in-person annual exhibition and conferences will take place from 8-11 November 2021.
ADIPEC’s chairman, Omar Suwaina Al Suwaidi, said: “Despite COVID-19’s global challenge, we are delighted that ADIPEC’s strategic and technical conferences will be held virtually this year, allowing leaders across the oil and gas industry to come together to share ideas and connect with a range of major industry trends, challenges and opportunities.
“All ADIPEC participants’ health and welfare is our highest priority, and we look forward to welcoming all visitors to the full exhibition and conference in person at ADIPEC 2021. Looking to the future, collaboration, technology, and innovation will be crucial levers as we continue to identify new opportunities for smart growth across the global energy landscape.”
The virtual conference will bring together ministers, CEOs and leaders of the global industry to evaluate the collective measures that the industry is putting in place to continue recovery after COVID-19.
Dmg Events Global Energy President, Christopher Hudson, said: “We are committed to ensuring ADIPEC remains at the heart of the global oil and gas landscape, driving forward the conversations, collaborations, and connections that address key challenges and fuel innovative ideas and strategies that shape the industry.
“By staging a concentrated and abridged virtual conference programme this year, ADIPEC will utilise cutting-edge technology that has evolved exponentially over the past four to five months, to ensure the industry and its community has a voice to discuss and share the learnings of this year and into the future.”

Attracting more than 155,000 attendees and 2,200 exhibitors in 2019, the event brings together Energy Ministers, global CEOs and leading decision makers alongside the businesses that shape the future of oil and gas supply across four days of focused commerce, dialogue and knowledge transfer that address today’s energy needs and define tomorrow’s energy landscape.
