OPEX MENA attracts an audience of 75% end-users, making this Operational Excellence forum stand out from similar events. This high ratio of end-users to service providers makes the event a very worthwhile investment of time and resources for solution providers and consultants wishing to promote their services and capabilities via the excellent meeting opportunities that OPEX MENA uniquely presents.


The high number of regional end-users in attendance (oil, gas, and petrochemicals producers) clearly demonstrates how important it is to their organisations to have access to learnings regarding current approaches to Operational Excellence. Almost every end-user either has an OE programme well underway or is at an early stage of implementation. Organisations have a strong appetite for gaining access to live thought leadership in this field and to hearing how others have been successful and equally, what challenges they have faced, via case studies and interactive panel discussions.
