The 2nd edition of the Saudi Arabia International Oil & Gas Exhibition and Conference (SAOGE) has come to a close after attracting a total of 6,770 attendees over the three days.
The event, held in Saudi Arabia enjoyed increased attendances compared to its first year.
“This year has surpassed expectations, the attendance grew by 23% and we welcomed 274 companies from around the world. The figure for visitors this year has also grown with 6770 industry representatives visiting the exhibition, quite an achievement given the economic downturn that we have been witnessing,” said Piero Zipoli, President, IES.
Industry figures such as Lord Digby Jones, the former Minister of Trade and Industry UK and Dr Randy Gossen, president of the World Petroleum Council spoke at the event.
An ‘Industry meets university’ session was also held at the event, giving students to ask questions to industry members.
