The USA is expected to put on a show of strength at ADIPEC with more than 200 exhibitors expected from the country, including heavyweights such as ExxonMobil, Schlumberger and Baker Hughes
The country's presence at ADIPEC is organised by Kallman Worldwide, in association with numerous government agencies such as the US Commercial Service.
The USA pavilion spans 3,400 sq m, spread across halls 7, 8 and 13 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).
Kallman worldwide president and CEO Tom Kallman said, “When the USA commits to exhibit at ADIPEC, we’re saying we believe in the power of this event to attract real business prospects and customers. The steady growth and diversification of this show speaks for itself. As the organiser of the US international pavilion, our team is proud to help our exhibitors capitalise on this international business event to grow their share of the regional marketplace, and further extend our nation’s global oil and gas leadership.”
Of the 104 companies participating in the pavilion, 35 are new to the show while 10 of the 35 are new to the market altogether. The USA pavilion is expected to create a wealth of opportunities and strengthen relationships with the buyers in the region.
Some of the product highlights presented by the USA include Bayco Products state-of-the-art dual-light flashlight; Galvanic Applied Sciences Inc.'s tail and gas pit analyser to monitor H2S, SO2, CS2 and COS; Vulcan Systems' innovative drilling waster solutions; Kerite's electrical submersible pump cable; DrawWorks' Casing Running Tool (DWCRT) and Flush Mount Spider (DWFMS); Lamons' fire safe flange isolation kits; Aereon's steam-flare assist options; inoVX's V-Suite business application; Victaulic's ball valve for upstream oil systems and Cestus' anti-vibration glove called TrembleX.
In addition, some other companies are using ADIPEC as a launch platform for major announcements - one such is the opening of Oxifree's office in the UK, which could potentially help technical and business development, and RedGuard's Middle East expansion plans.
The pavilion is primary destination for buyers to meet USA companies, and will be an on-site business hub for exhibitors looking to maximise their exposure and time at the event, said Kallman officials.
