Middle East Energy 2021
UAE, Dubai: The 46th edition of Middle East Energy (formerly Middle East Electricity) has evolved into an exciting hybrid format for 2021.
The exhibition is to provide an interactive digital and live platform for professionals to engage with industry leaders and ensure business continuity during an era of unprecedented transformation for the energy sector.
In the run up to the in-person Middle East Energy exhibition (MEE), which will be held along with Global Energy & Utilities Forum (GEUF) on 14-16 June at Dubai World Trade Centre, will be a series of virtual conferences running from 17 May to 7 June.
The region’s leading event for the power industry – organised by Informa Markets – saw $5 B worth of deals signed at the 2020 show.
Digital events will include tech talks, interactive roundtables, panel discussions, thought leadership sessions and remote interviews. Networking opportunities will include hosted buyer meetings – facilitated by a trusted agency – as well as fireside chats, breakout sessions, personalised meetings and speed networking sessions.
The sector themed weeks will include:
- Renewable energy: week commencing 17 May
- Transmission & Distribution: week commencing 24 May
- Critical & backup power (Power generation): week commencing 31 May
- Energy consumption & management: week commencing 7 June
“We are excited to bring you the expanded MEE Live & Online,” states Gareth Rapley, Group Director of Energy & Utilities, Informa Markets. “Digital consumption is rapidly increasing in our business and personal lives – this was more evident in 2020 than ever before. As remote working enters the mainstream and traditional work practices become more fragmented, we are looking to offer a more robust suite of digital solutions to complement our in-person events. This new online version will overcome geographical obstacles enabling Middle East Energy to reach a much broader customer base. We believe that combining the best of face-to-face and digital interactions will provide a platform for the global energy community to network, learn through content and find solutions to help meet the world’s increasing demand for clean, affordable and reliable energy”.
