Meaning “The Gathering”, Al Multaqa is a series of events taking place throughout the year, organised exclusively for the Middle East Petroleum Club members. After the launch of the Middle East Petroleum Club at ADIPEC 2012, the MEPC initiated its first exclusive networking outside of ADIPEC in May 2013.
Members are now able to attend VIP networking lunches at a high-end restaurant in Abu Dhabi, offering key decision makers located in the Gulf region an opportunity to meet and network in a private yet informal environment, as well as to discuss relevant industry topics in a group.
Each Al Multaqa provides an opportunity for our exclusive members to receive an update on the approaching ADIPEC which will take place 13th – 16th November 2017. In addition to the ADIPEC overview, a guest speaker will open each Al Multaqa, sparking conversation and debate amongst attending members.
An invitation-only policy is applied to Al Multaqa events, as it is a networking event aimed to cater only to the most senior industry professionals.
