Accelerant Solutions attended the 2019 Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC). The exhibition was held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates from November 11th-14th, 2019. Comprised of petroleum industry companies and associated businesses such as shipping, mining, and training suppliers, the conference drew approximately 155,000 attendees from around the world. There were over 2,000 exhibitors in 13 exhibition halls.
Accelerant was one the exhibitors!
ADIPEC is the world’s largest and most influential event for the oil and gas industry and the event attracted a record-breaking crowd. The conference brought together Energy Ministers, global CEOs and leading decision makers alongside the companies that shape the future of oil and gas supply. The goal of the 4 days was to facilitate focused business dialogue and knowledge transfer that addresses today’s energy needs and defines tomorrow’s energy landscape.
ADIPEC gave exhibitors unparalleled access to the top decision-makers in the oil and gas industry and was the ideal platform to create new business opportunities, strengthen existing relationships and network across the entire energy sector. Mike Cadden, Accelerant’s Chief Operating Officer, devised a strategy for the conference.
Mike said, “My strategy for the conference is to man the booth and to introduce myself to as many attendees as possible.” The booth was manned continuously. Mike elaborated further, “I plan on attending a few key sessions to learn more about what is trending in the industry and how we can participate. I intend to meet new people and visit other exhibitor booths to look for possible synergistic opportunities.”
Innovative Software to Serve ADIPEC
The 2019 ADIPEC conference marked Accelerant’s first significant foray into the oil and gas industry. Accelerant Solutions, along with our partners Tecnatom, staffed a booth in the Technology and Innovation pavilion. The team was able to network with potential customers from around the world, demonstrating the wide range of products and services that Accelerant provides.
Demonstrations of the SOUL™ (Smart Open Universe of Learning) and PLANT™ were provided at the Accelerant booth for interested attendees. Additionally, such demonstrations were presented to audiences in the presentation area established by the conference organizers. Accelerant presented the capabilities of SOUL™ and PLANT™ several times during the event. This effort was instrumental in placing the Accelerant brand into the minds of the oil and gas industry representatives.
Mike was accompanied by Tim Pilmaier. Tim is a Project Director for Accelerant. As a team, the two carried out Accelerant’s strategy. Tim was pleased to join the effort. He stated, “It is an honor to help Accelerant grow as an international company. Our mission here is grow the brand, specifically in the oil and gas industry. We are doing exactly that.”
One of the goals supporting the strategy was to sign up potential customers to view a full webinar that completely demonstrated the power of SOUL™. To that end, the team was able sign up dozens of interested attendees for the webinar. Accelerant plans to grow its business in the United Arab Emirates and other areas of the world. Attending the ADIPEC conference was an integral step in implementing this strategy
