Why Exhibit at ADIPEC 2019?

In November 2019, Abu Dhabi hosts the 22nd Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) and if there’s one sure thing in the highly speculative business of oil & gas, it’s ADIPEC, the centerpiece event of the Middle East petroleum industry and one of the crown jewels of international trade shows. No matter how high or low oil prices go, or how much more or less producers decide to produce, ADIPEC delivers consistently for exhibitors and attendees.

That value raises the stakes on the show floor where more than 2,000 exhibitors compete for the attention of as many as 100,000 informed, curious buyers and influencers. Add that to the 35 NOC’s & IOC’s on the show floor and this global business hub will be full of energy. From national leaders to consultants, ADIPEC attracts anyone and everyone serious about conducting business within the region and has grown into a benchmark for business, for networking and for thought leadership – an unrivaled platform for knowledge sharing and connectivity between the sector’s brightest and most influential minds.

Why Exhibit in the USA Partnership Pavilion?

Kallman Worldwide’s decades of experience organizing the U.S. presence at international shows around the world, including ADIPEC (since 2006), builds on America's advantage to help you stand out at the show. Our USA Partnership Pavilion is your on-site headquarters at ADIPEC: a destination for buyers, a business hub for exhibitors and a forum for all to share ideas and insights. In 2019, in addition to our suite of end-to-end show services, Pavilion exhibitors will benefit from a prominent, high-traffic hall location, access to public- and private-sector VIPs and influencers, exclusive business intelligence from industry thought-leaders and operatives and exclusive networking events.


We love our USA Partnership Pavilion location! But if your business needs are better met in another location outside the pavilion, turn to us first. We will work with our close contacts in the show organizer’s office to get you a location that best suits your needs.

ADIPEC delivers real buying power from across the world to Abu Dhabi

Over $3 trillion of projects are underway or planned in the Middle East region and Abu Dhabi continues to attract huge capital intensive projects. Over $9 billion of contracts were signed during ADIPEC 2018, a figure which is expected to grow in 2019. The event delivers real business opportunities: 81% of attendees are decision makers, purchasers or influencers.

ADIPEC represents major opportunities across the supply chain for international oil companies, independent exploration and production companies, EPC contractors and suppliers of technologies and know-how.

An increasing need for enhanced oil recovery (EOR), sour gas, heavy oil, tight gas, LNG, GTL, and “clean fuels” refineries has driven the need for advanced technologies and know-how, much of it garnered by joint ventures with international oil companies (IOCs) and their supply chains.

Despite hosting an estimated 40% of the world’s gas reserves, the region cannot keep up with the rapid demand for gas, driving major new exploration campaigns, production of unconventional and sour gas and importation of LNG.


Co-located exhibition and conference dedicated to security across the oil and gas industry, which brought together cyber and physical security leaders together for the first time at ADIPEC 2016. Cyber security is the number one security concern for the region’s petroleum industry. The need to manage and contain this risk will be major opportunity for specialist service providers who can contain and defeat these attacks.
