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.

Industry Overview

The MENA region is experiencing marked increases in energy and electricity demand associated with strong demographic growth, urbanization, expanding economy, and growing energy intensity, as well as high temperatures and scarce water. The Middle East population is expected to grow by 31% by 2025 while GDP is predicted to rise by 4.3% by 2020. Such rapid population growth—especially in urban centers—paired with economic expansion and urbanization, means greater demands are continuously being placed on the electric generation networks of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

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.
