Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is hosting the 24th World Energy Congress 2019 from 9th to 12th September in that would witness 250 speakers, 100 hours of learning and 70 sessions.

In just a few generations, Abu Dhabi has transformed itself from a small island settlement into a thriving international business hub. Capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi is a dynamic modern city, at the forefront of global green initiatives and planning for the next generation's transformation.

Located on an island on the coast of the Arabian Gulf, Abu Dhabi is the largest of the seven emirates that make up the UAE and has a highly diverse population, with residents from 120 countries making up 80 per cent of its population. Due to the vision of the UAE's leaders and the abundance of oil and natural gas reserves, Abu Dhabi has grown to become one of the largest and most strategically-important energy producers. While recognising the success of the oil and gas sector, Abu Dhabi is working hard to reduce its reliance on hydrocarbons and broaden the emirate's economy. This is part of a progressive agenda that encompasses economic and environmental sustainability, education and human development, healthcare and the arts. Investment in all these areas – as well as infrastructure, transport and tourism - is continuing, in line with the Abu Dhabi Government's 2030 economic plan.

Tourism has also played an integral role in Abu Dhabi's economic development. The emirate has many things to offer to visitors: direct flights to the world's business and population centres, a range of world-class hotels, a versatile landscape, and one of the lowest crime rates in the world. This September, join us in Abu Dhabi as we welcome each one of you to the 24th World Energy Congress which takes place in the Gulf States for the first time in the Congress's 95-year history. Congress will deliver an inspirational programme that will challenge your thinking, get you ahead of the curve, and give you both the courage to set ambitious targets and the tools to achieve them.
