The UK’s leading manpower provider to the oil and gas sector has signed on as the headline sponsor of an exclusive evening reception in Abu Dhabi, where over 200 guests from the Middle East’s major oil, gas and power companies will be in attendance.
Orion Group and The Energy Industry Council (EIC) will welcome esteemed guests to the St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort in Abu Dhabi this evening (1 June 2015) between 7pm-9pm for a night of networking with key members and decision makers from across the sector.
The high-level business evening will take place ahead of tomorrow’s (2 June 2015) EIC Connect Middle East 2015 conference, where industry leaders will outline what is expected for the oil, gas and power sector in the region over the next five years.
David Cordiner, Orion Group Divisional Director Middle East: “We are excited to be involved in this year’s prestigious event. Orion Group has been operating in the Middle East for over 10 years and events such as this organised by the Energy Industry Council are essential for bringing the key industry people under one roof."
The Conference, which is one the biggest “meet the buyer” events of its kind in the region, will be chaired by Eddie O’Sullivan, chairman of events at MEED. Speakers will include Phillip Parham who is the British Ambassador to Abu Dhabi and Ali Al-Jarwan, CEO of ADMA OPCO.
Designed to directly contribute to the UK’s and UAE’s 2015 bi-lateral trade targets, the EIC Connect Middle East 2015 event is a prime platform for Orion Group to cross promote its UK and UAE offering.
