Egypt to host global oil and gas executives at EGYPS

The Egypt Petroleum Show (EGYPS), North Africa & the Mediterranean’s largest Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference, will be held at the Egypt International Exhibition and Conference Center (EIEC) from Monday 11 until Wednesday 13 February.

Held under the patronage of the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi and with the support of the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, EGYPS 2019 is set to build on the success of previous editions, expecting more than 20,000 attendees from more than 40 countries convening for 3 days to engage in dialogue, build partnerships and do business with local and international participants.

Growing in importance year after year, EGYPS 2019 will reflect growing global interest in the oil and gas industry’s prospects across the North African and Mediterranean region. EGYPS will host 22 National and International Oil Companies exhibiting at the event.

Under the theme “Delivering the Energy Needs of Tomorrow”, the third edition of EGYPS will see industry leaders discussing developments and trends that will influence the strategies of companies investing in and operating in the region, and will showcase oil and gas innovations and technologies that will change the way these same companies operate their assets.

This year, the exhibition will span 28,000 sqm of floor space with more than 400 exhibitors. The exhibition acts as a key enabler of bilateral trade, and will feature 13 official international country pavilions from Bahrain, Canada, China, France, Italy, Norway, Russia, Scotland, United Arab Emirates, England and United States of America, plus for the first time, pavilions from Germany and Cyprus.  Additionally, the exhibition will also feature a new Digitalisation in Energy zone, providing a much needed focus on companies enabling the future advancement of the industry, of which many are calling the fourth industrial revolution.

This theme will also run through the high level conference panels, where discussions to support and enable companies to embark on the transformation journey will take place.

EGYPS hosts a number of key features, returning in 2019 is the Women in Energy Awards, a platform created to celebrate the achievements of exceptional women in Egypt, North Africa and the Mediterranean oil and gas sector.  New for 2019 is the introduction of the HSE Excellence in Energy Award, recognising outstanding projects, case studies and strategies in health, safety and environmental protection across the oil and gas value chain.
