WETEX 2020 is the 1st virtual carbon-free exhibition in the Middle East & North Africa on water, energy, environment, sustainability, and innovation
: HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and Founder and Chairman of the Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX), has confirmed that DEWA will organise the 22nd WETEX virtually on 26-28 October 2020. The 3D exhibition is the first of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa, and it will provide a new experience for exhibitors and visitors from around the world. It will enable exhibitors to display their products in an innovative way through 3D customisable stands to suit each company’s needs. It also will enable meetings, seminars, and workshops using the latest smart technologies.
“For the last 21 years, we have organised WETEX every year under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai; and under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Minister of Finance and President of DEWA. WETEX has become one of the largest and most important global water, environment, and energy exhibitions. We have learned from our wise leadership the importance of turning challenges into opportunities. Due to the travel restrictions, and the precautionary measures implemented in most countries around the world because of the COVID-19 pandemic, WETEX 2020 will happen virtually; using DEWA’s state-of-the-art digital infrastructure. This will provide an exceptional experience for exhibitors and reach a larger number of visitors across the world,” said Al Tayer.
