Renowned for providing up-to-date information about the latest technological developments in the power industry, POWER-GEN Middle East is a must attend event for professionals and decision makers in the power industry. This premier event not only provides the gateway to establishing a strong market presence in the region, but enables the chance to hear about exciting new developments as growth and vitality in the Middle East continues to soar in response to increasing demand and rapid industrial developments which has positioned the Middle East region as one of the most dynamic power sectors in the world.
Attracting delegates and attendees from 69 countries across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and around the world, this high-quality event is the industry’s leading platform to meet and network with senior executive and industry leaders. If you work in the power industry or supply products or services to the power generation industry in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, then POWER-GEN Middle East is essential to reaching influential and major players.

The event is critical to discussions about how GCC countries can meet the estimated 6% to 10% annual surge in demand for power, which is around 8GW of additional capacity. GCC countries are projected to invest more than $300 billion in some 20 energy projects by 2020.
