Held every year, the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference is one of the largest get-togethers for the oil and gas industries. It’s an opportunity for networking and sales of course but there are also technical speakers and government representatives from round the world in attendance driven in part by its location in the Middle East – Abu Dhabi is a neighbour of Dubai in the UAE. FlexEJ represents itself in the region through our partners Kanoo Energy LLC and this year they kindly invited us to feature on their stand.
In the picture you can see we’re exhibiting a sample-section of one of our bespoke rubber expansion bellows. Close-up and in section, it shows the hand-made construction, full-faced rubber flanges and - in this case - tie-rods. Built especially for the exhibition by our sister Company – Safetech – it’s an EPDM rubber FlexEL CG21 which can be made to almost any specification. Our graphics house here in the UK designed our poster panels and Heba Ali our sales executive is on hand to answer questions.
With 2000 exhibitors, more than 900 technical speakers and an estimated 100,000 visitors we anticipate it will offer us a valuable opportunity to meet some of our current end-users and (we hope) be introduced to new customers. So far we’ve attracted an encouraging number of visitors, drawn mainly we think by our sample rubber bellow. It promises to be a good four days.
