ADIPEC Creates Opportunities to Make New Connections,
Drive Business Growth
UAE Capital is at Crossroads of Global Energy Industry
Abu Dhabi, UAE – 26 October 2017 – This year’s Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) will give oil and gas professionals an unrivalled platform to meet potential new business partners from around the world, organisers said today during the lead-up to the annual event.
From exclusive C-suite networking sessions in the VIP-only Middle East Petroleum Club, to a bespoke matchmaking concierge service that will pre-arrange highly targeted face-to-face meetings, ADIPEC will offer a wide range of carefully designed opportunities for visitors, delegates and exhibitors to make valuable new connections and drive business growth.
“ADIPEC puts Abu Dhabi at the crossroads of the global energy industry, bringing together more than 100,000 professionals from across the world, all wanting to move their business forward,” said Jean-Philippe Cossé, Vice President, Middle East – Global Energy at dmg events, which organizes ADIPEC. “When you come to ADIPEC, you know you are having the right conversations with the right people – whether that’s between top CEOs discussing markets and strategy, or a buyer and seller closing a deal on the exhibition floor.”
To support ADIPEC’s role as a meetings hub, recent editions have seen consistent development of features designed to help bring people together.
For senior government ministers and officials, as well as C-level attendees, the Middle East Petroleum Club is the exclusive VIP club for oil and gas decision-makers. It provides an environment for high-level private networking, first introduced in 2013.
For trade professionals, the biggest challenge can be to identify opportunities amid the vast scale of ADIPEC. Over four days, the event will attract an estimated 10,000 conference delegates and 100,000 exhibition visitors from around 135 countries, while 2,200 exhibiting companies are confirmed from more than 53 countries. Those numbers keep growing year on year, partly because ADIPEC keeps expanding in its scope. In 2015, the Offshore and Marine area was launched, while last year the Security in Energy event was added to the programme. This year the downstream oil and gas industries will be included for the first time, as part of the expanded conference programme covering both strategic and technical content for the sector. Each comes with its own conference programme and exhibition area, and attracts additional attendees.
With so much ground to cover, 2017 will see an expansion of ADIPEC’s Global Meetings Programme, which acts as a vehicle to drive bi-lateral trade as buyers and sellers from all around the world converge on the event. This bespoke networking and matchmaking service gives conference delegates, exhibitors and VIPs an efficient way to search for and connect with new and existing business contacts, and pre-arrange meetings either in a dedicated lounge or on exhibitor stands.
Each attendee at ADIPEC can upload a profile onto the Global Meetings Programme platform, including company and personal details, listing their areas of interest, and the programme will suggest possible meetings. Anyone attending ADIPEC can use the programme, although access will be higher depending on the type of badge a participant holds.
“The matchmaking concierge service organised around 600 meetings last year, a number we plan to more than triple to about 2,000 for 2017, and we have designed the system to make sure these are all high-value meetings for both sides,” said Jean-Philippe Cossé. “An important feature of the system is that, although initial matches are made by sophisticated algorithms, recommendations are checked and validated by a member of our specialised concierge team before passing them on.”
Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, hosted by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), and organised by the Global Energy division of dmg events, ADIPEC is one of the world’s leading oil and gas events, and the largest in Africa and the Middle East.
ADIPEC will be held at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre from 13 to 16 November 2017.

Tyre market in Bangladesh is forecasted to grow at over 9% until 2020 on the back of growth in automobile sales, advancements in public infrastructure, and development-seeking government policies.
The government has emphasized on the road infrastructure of the country, which has been instrumental in driving vehicle sales in the country.
The tyre market reached Tk 4,750 crore last year, up from about Tk 4,000 crore in 2017, according to market insiders.
The commercial vehicle tyre segment dominates this industry with around 80% of the market share. At least 1.5 lakh pieces of tyres in the segment were sold in 2018.
In the commercial vehicle tyre segment, the MRF's market share is 30%. Apollo controls 5% of the segment, Birla 10%, CEAT 3%, and Hankook 1%. The rest 51% is controlled by non-branded Chinese tyres.
However, Bangladesh mostly lacks in tyre manufacturing setups, which leads to tyre imports from other countries as the only feasible option to meet the demand. The company largely imports tyre from China, India, Indonesia, Thailand and Japan.
Automobile and tyre sales in Bangladesh are expected to grow with the rising in purchasing power of people as well as growing investments and joint ventures of foreign market players. The country might become the exporting destination for global tyre manufacturers.
Several global tyre giants have also expressed interest in making significant investments by setting up their manufacturing units in the country.
This reflects an opportunity for local companies to set up an indigenous manufacturing base in Bangladesh and also enables foreign players to set up their localized production facilities to capture a significant market.
It can be said that, the rise in automobile sales, improvement in public infrastructure, and growth in purchasing power to drive the tyre market over the next five years.
