Ali Al-Amri: “Local companies operating in the oil and gas sector and associated services are keen annually to be present at the exhibition.”
The Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference “ADIPEC 2021” concluded its activities yesterday, in the largest gathering of oil and gas since the exhibition session in 2019, before the spread of the “Corona” pandemic globally.
Participating foreign and local companies told "Emirates Today" that this year's session of the exhibition exceeded expectations in terms of attendance, and represented a great opportunity to display their various products, as well as learn about the latest technologies in the oil and gas industry.
A local company suggested allocating a pavilion in the next session of ADIPEC, bearing the name "Emirates", which includes all local companies.
The Chairman of the Board of Directors of Al-Shumoukh Oil Services Company, Dr. Ali Al-Amri, said that "the momentum of the exhibition in the 2021 session came above what we expected as companies, whether in terms of attendance, number of visitors or exhibiting companies."
He added that local companies operating in the oil and gas sector and associated services are keen annually to see the latest technologies, as well as attract new partnerships and benefit from the ideas and innovations discussed that keep pace with the development of the industry.
Al-Amiri suggested that a pavilion be allocated in the next session of ADIPEC bearing the name of the Emirates, which includes all local companies, especially from the private sector, which may find their individual participation somewhat expensive.
He pointed out that «many countries put all their companies in the exhibition under one pavilion, which divides the total cost on a number of companies, and therefore it is reasonable and not financially burdensome for the company, as is the case if it alone rents a space».
For its part, a spokeswoman for the Italian company, Copni, said that the company displayed tools related to oil fields at ADIPEC, as well as a new technology used to manage sites remotely.
She said that ADIPEC is a strong opportunity for all companies to showcase their latest products, learn about new in the market and forge new partnerships.
She added, "We did not expect such a large attendance at the exhibition, especially after about two years of the 2019 session, and the spread of the (Corona) virus last year, and the subsequent closure and suspension of aircraft movement."
In turn, the German "Fair Dose" company, which works in the manufacture of fire-fighting tools and materials in the oil and gas sector, confirmed that it is periodically keen to be present at ADIPEC every year, with the exception of the year of "Corona" in which the exhibition was held virtually.
