We’ll be at ADIPEC 2016 – will you?

Touted by its organisers as the world’s most important oil and gas exhibition and conference, ADIPEC (Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference) is a truly vast affair, with conferences, exhibitions and award ceremonies set in the lavish environs of Abu Dhabi’s National Exhibition Centre. We’re taking it an opportunity to talk to the market about our industry-leading double block and bleed butterfly valves.

Our very own business development manager Gethin Hale will be representing team Hobbs at the event, so if you’d like to catch up be sure to get in touch with him on or call 07867 315 486.

November 7th to November 10th are the days you need to mark out in your diary, with the opportunity to see over 2,500 exhibitors and listen to 700 speakers in conference at the event described as a proven platform for bi-lateral trade and investment.

“For us, ADIPEC is an incredible opportunity,” explains Gethin. “It’s rare to get so many personalities from the world of oil and gas together in one venue so I’ll be lining up meeting after meeting.

“ADIPEC is well known in the industry – since 1984 it’s been bringing people together from across the planet, with engineers, scientist, entrepreneurs and business development specialists deciding the future of the fossil fuels industry on a global scale.

“Our double block and bleed butterfly valves will be of particular interest to attendees, especially given their significant weight, size and maintenance savings when compared to traditional ball valve and gate valve DBB alternatives.

“My only concern is managing to get around all 2000-plus exhibitor stands before collapsing with exhaustion!”

If you get tired of treading the hallways, don’t forget that ADIPEC even organises an official golf day for those who prefer to do their business on the green.

So book your flight, pack a pair of comfy shoes and we’ll see you there!
