The UAE's meeting place for the downstream industry

ABOUT ABU DHABI INTERNATIONAL DOWNSTREAM

The World Refining Association would like to thank all Abu Dhabi Downstream International 2016 attendees, speakers and sponsors for contributing to another hugely successful event, and we look forward to welcoming you to the 18th Abu Dhabi International Downstream Summit in 2017.

You can view the 2016 gallery here.

In times when margins are tighter and we have to be more careful in how we are managing our Opex and Capex, there is much optimism in the Middle East downstream industry. The region, whilst experiencing the same tighter margins as the rest of the world is continuing to push ahead with downstream expansion projects such as the Al Zour refinery in Kuwait and the Liwa Plastics project in Oman.

Having been co-hosted by Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Company Takreer for the past 14 years, Abu Dhabi International Downstream is a carefully crafted refining and petrochemicals summit that provides you with an unparalleled platform to discuss market dynamics, highlight new projects and hear about all of the latest technologies which are shaping the refining and petrochemical complexes of the future and that will help the region remain competitive in a low oil price environment.

INTERACTIVE FORMATS

Speed Networking

Meet 50 delegates in less than 30 minutes! Join a table with five of your peers for three minutes. When the bell rings pick up your new business cards and move to the next table for more introductions. A great icebreaker, ensure you’ve met everyone vital for your business.

The Big Debate

This highly interactive format is coming to ADID for the first time, this year’s Big Debate is: This house believes there is a market for the new addition of polymers and aromatics production in the GCC. Based on the Oxford-Style format, after a 5 minute introduction from the moderator, each panelist will present a ten-minute opening statement either proposing or opposing the motion. This will be followed by 20 minutes questions from the audience and inter-panel challenges. To conclude, each panelist will deliver a five-minute closing argument followed by an audience vote.

Gala Dinner Reception

Business is not all about meeting rooms and conference calls, it is also about taking the time to understand your partners and finding out more about them. The ADID Gala Reception is the perfect place to relax with a refreshing drink while building these crucial bridges.
