ADIPEC 2023 will take place in Abu Dhabi from 2-5 October, bringing together industry leaders, innovators, and policymakers to accelerate the practical action and credible solutions needed to tackle the biggest challenges in energy and climate
Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates, and hosted by ADNOC, the theme for ADIPEC 2023 is ‘Decarbonising. Faster. Together.’
More than 160,000 attendees from around the world will join the leading energy producers, the biggest energy consumers, and enablers in government, finance, and technology, to provide thought leadership, foster cross-sector partnerships, and inspire the innovation needed to deliver the clean, affordable, and reliable energy the world requires.
ADIPEC 2023 takes place less than two months before the UAE hosts the 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28), providing a platform for the energy industry to advance credible solutions and collective action towards eliminating methane emissions, phasing out carbon emissions across the value chain to achieve net zero by 2050, assuring energy security and investment in the global south, as well as scaling-up clean energies and decarbonisation technologies.
Tayba Al Hashemi, chair of ADIPEC 2023 and CEO of ADNOC Offshore, said, “By 2030, the world will be home to an additional half a billion people, demanding more energy every year. At the same time, the global challenge of climate change calls for urgent, game-changing solutions to eliminate emissions. Every government, industry, business and individual has a role to play in decarbonising quicker, and creating the future of energy, faster, while safeguarding energy security and ensuring nobody is left behind.
“ADIPEC 2023 will be a progressive force for energy transformation and leadership. It will unite the expanding and increasingly diverse world of energy and help us work together to transform, decarbonise and future-proof our industry, by accelerating the innovation and tangible actions needed to enable a lower-carbon and higher-growth future for the world.”
ADIPEC 2023 will host more than 350 conference sessions across 10 strategic and technical programmes – including a new Hydrogen Strategic Conference – with more than 1,500 speakers who will explore the strategies and solutions critical to achieving a cleaner, more secure energy future.
Christopher Hudson, president of dmg events, organisers of ADIPEC 2023, said, "ADIPEC 2023 will actively support the transformative global energy agenda. As climate challenges intensify, the energy sector’s responsibility to lead the necessary progress on decarbonisation is greater today than ever before. ADIPEC 2023 will bring key industry decision-makers together to accelerate the innovation, collaboration, and investment necessary to drive us towards a lower-carbon future."
Spread across 140,000 square metres, ADIPEC 2023’s exhibition will host more than 2,200 companies from around the world. The exhibition will include four dedicated industry zones – an expanded Decarbonisation Zone, the Digitalisation in Energy Zone, a Maritime and Logistics Zone, and a dedicated Manufacturing and Industrialisation Exhibition and Conference.
Last year, ADIPEC had record global attendance of more than 160,000 attendees from 164 countries. It also generated an estimated US$8.2bn in business for exhibiting companies and brought the UAE an estimated US$200mn in business through sectors that supported the four-day event, including tourism and hospitality.
