In keeping with the theme, “Managing Marine & Offshore Transformation – Challenges, Solutions & Opportunities” we have invited experts in the relevant fields to be our speakers for the Visionary Sessions and Keynote Addresses.

The exhibition which is to be held simultaneously will provide the opportunity to showcase the “state of the art know-how and technology and will also reflect every organization’s commitment to marine, maritime and environment”. Offshore Arabia 2019 presents an excellent platform for networking, the exchange of knowledge and information between individuals, business opportunities and strategic partnerships between exhibitors and conference participants.

In this challenging business environment, new companies are emerging and new markets are being developed presenting plenty of new opportunities. But where are those opportunities, how can we identify them, and how can we avoid falling into the same traps that have caused so much instability and uncertainty over the past few years? Offshore Arabia 2019 is the only platform where east meets west, we are aware of the increasing business challenges and strategic decisions thus we offer improved initiatives here that can be realized.

This conference will provide some of the answers. A team of high-level speakers, from a wide range of sectors will highlight these issues. These involve the oil and gas sector to Oil, Chemical and other Harmful Substances, Spill prevention, Response, Protection, Contamination of Marine and Coastal Environment/ Crises and Disaster Management and from the Marine and Shipping Industry to Global Trade, from Global and Regional Environmental Issues and Climate Change to New Technologies and Renewable Energy and finally the role of legal & finance in the marine & maritime sector an event you will only love to be at.

We stand for global partnership and by working together we will demonstrate that there is a way out of the chaos. I invite you to participate and we are looking forward to your active participation in Offshore Arabia 2019.

Once again, I welcome you to your Offshore Arabia 2020 Conference & Exhibition.
